Tex Perkins

Tex Perkins has been making music of all kinds for some 30 years from the experimental noise and ambient soundscapes of sound pranksters Thug, to the good time instrumental grooves of The Cruel Sea, the brutal blues of The Beasts of Bourbon to the gothic folk of The Dark Horses.

With all of these outfits music has been used by filmmakers, but it is with Rachel Ward’s 2009 film ‘Beautiful Kate’ that we see his first fully scored work for a motion picture. Written and recorded with Fellow Dark Horse Murray Paterson this is a haunting score that works perfectly with this great Australian film. Currently working on a new Dark Horses album Perkins describes their latest work as a soundtrack waiting for a film.
