The Texettes - By A Living Thing     Country, Alternative Country 28/07/2010
The Texettes new CD release will "shake grab you, shake you and leave you bare". Spin your listeners into spring with "A Surefire Cure", 12 great orginal country tracks.
Up tempo start - a "Dylan meets Knopfler" style catchy country song. Nice guitar work. Considered single material by Mike Parkes Adelaide's Coast FM (reviewer). Feel the despair and heartache as generations of tradition are swept away when mines and mills close, farms are lost and towns die.
