Tex Perkins & The Fat Rubber Band is the debut studio album by Australian rock band Tex Perkins & The Fat Rubber Band, released in November 2021 via Source Music.

The latest thrilling incarnation of master rock’n’roll storyteller Tex Perkins & The Fat Rubber Band began with a Link Wray record. Perkins and his respected musician, songwriter, producer and bandmate Matt Walker share a mutual admiration of the American electric guitar innovator, whose iconic power chords in his signature 50s rock’n’roll instrumentals, had a profound influence on the evolution of rock guitar.

The pair have enjoyed countless musical conversations over the decade while hanging out backstage and on the road with Perkins’ award-winning The Man In Black - The Johnny Cash Story, with Walker playing guitar in the Tennessee Four band for the theatrical production.

When Perkins enthused about his partner finding him a rare vinyl copy of Link Wray’s Beans and Fatback album, recorded in 1971, Walker’s response initiated a flurry of creative endeavour which would ultimately result in the formation of The Fat Rubber Band. Even after all these decades, when you think you know that gravelly baritone inside out, Perkins finds new emotional tones in the service of the Fat Rubber Band’s songs vivid narratives, with their characters wrestling, but sometimes dancing, with the tougher, darker qualities of the human condition.

This is truly existential blues. Bubbling underneath those upfront vocals and raw harmonies are intricately entwined guitar conversations and unexpected percussive flourishes. This is end times existential electric country funk folk rock swamp witch blues, its way out there, but it’s here right now.

This album is on black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in Australia via Source Music.
