The Ape is Tex Perkins’ latest musical project featuring Raul Sanchez (Magic Dirt), Gus Agars (The Dark Horses) and Pat Bourke.

Their self-titled debut is the one Perkins fans have been waiting for – rough, funky and sexy. Their catchy first single Crawl Back struts along on electric guitar and beating percussion with Perkins’ gruff vocals leading the way.

Beginning with Man on a Mission, the album kicks into gear early and then slips like a guitar slide towards the slower-tempo middle tracks before grooving along to Monkey in the Kitchen.

In Perkins’ own words this is “an album bursting with swing and grunt”. (LL)
