Tex And The Horseheads - TEX AND THE HORSEHEADS

Formed: Los Angeles, California, USA

Tex And The Horseheads - TEX AND THE HORSEHEADS

Cowpunks.

Trouser Press says this:

One of the wilder exponents of cow-punk, Tex and the Horseheads are spiritual kin to the Gun Club. And while they lean towards a very punky image (lead singer Texacala Jones dresses like a female Stiv Bator; on the first album, the bassist's name is Smog Vomit and the drummer is Rock Vodka), their playing is fairly coherent. Mixing mutant blues (even a cover of Jimmy Reed's "Big Boss Man") into the first album's punk-country-rock blender, Tex and the Horseheads have a convincingly strong sound, but are a few pints short on material.
