The ex-The Beasts Of Bourbon, The Butcher Shop, The Cruel Sea etc.... has never sounded better. Tex is very rarely idle, and with Charlie Owen on board has produced one the best albums from last year. Produced by Birthday Party & Bad seeds producer Tony Cohen it has a similiar feel to Nick Caves Boatmans Call. It's a very stripped down acoustic sound with Tex nearly whispering over the tracks. A great starting place for those unfamiliar with his work and an essential for the avid fan.

Wow, Tex Perkins has just gone & done it again. Another classy release, more mellow than Beasts of Bourbon and Cruel Sea - a more introspective man wrote these beautiful songs. This is a CD that gets better with every listen, draws you into the music & lyrics, or am I being too etheric now - just some music moves you and some just don't, and this does.....
