Edwards, T. Tex, Intexicated
T. Tex Edwards “remains a pioneering, under-appreciated, and often neglected chronicler of the offbeat and eccentric traditions of country rock’n’roll,” notes All Music Guide. Intexicated remedies any neglect of this wild and wooly Texas musical treasure with 19 collected odds, sods, unreleased recordings, demos, outtakes and offbeat gems from throughout his distinctively different musical career spent kicking up some seriously cool and twisted dust from the roots rocking underground. Featuring work under his own name as well as such T. Tex outfits as The Loafin’ Hyenas, Tex & The Saddle Tramps and The Swingin’ Kornflake Killers are such top T. Tex moments as renditions of “Psycho” and “Lee Harvey was A Friend of Mine,” his classic “Move It” (also recorded by The LeRoi Brothers), takes on Dave Davies’ Kinks hit “Death of a Clown” and “Baby’s Got A Gun” by The Only Ones, and to wrap it all up, a demo of a commercial Tex cut for the Chili’s restaurant chain. It’s an intexicating collection from an artist of uncommonly cool off-kilter brilliance.
