Biography

Texacala Jones is the coolest rock star in the world. Nobody can touch her. Axl Rose is a just bratty amateur in comparison. She’s destroyed more hotel rooms than every member of Motley Crue combined on one tenth of the budget, and has casually strolled away from more fiery disasters than Evel Knieval. Her legendary ‘cowpunk’ band, Tex and the Horseheads, has directly influenced every shitkicker rock band in existence, from the Supersuckers to Nashville Pussy. She wore tribal make-up before Adam Ant, torn-up dresses before Courtney Love, and to this day, remains the only girl in the world beautiful and bad-ass enough to successfully wear chicken bones in her hair. She is a voodoo-goddess, a punk rock superstar, a beer-swilling danger hound, the ultimate outlaw pin-up, and one of the greatest blues singers to ever throw up in a suitcase.

Although she had played in bands as far back as high school, Tex is most well known as the lead singer in Tex and the Horseheads, an LA band that formed in the early 80’s in the wake of the spooky desperado punk of the Gun Club. Their sound was half Howlin’ Wolf, half Johnny Cash, with a dose of good ol’ dive bar rock n’ roll tossed in. Tex was wild, free, and sexy as hell, and her band was young, mean, and ready for anything. Of course, LA loved ‘em, and they remained club favorites for years.
