Joe Pug covered Tex Thomas last night at The Earl. Tex who?

Joe Pug and Strand of Oaks played an early show at The Earl in Atlanta last night. I’d review the show, but do I really need to say more about Joe and Tim? It’s impossible not to love both of these artists and I’m proud to have been introduced to their music very early on in their careers.  Take the time to check out the tour dates. It’ll be the best $10 you’ve spent in awhile.

Other than seeing Joe accompanied by upright bass and an incredible lead guitarist on this tour, one of the highlights from last night was seeing Pug cover an Austin, TX singer/songwriter named Tex Thomas. I don’t have the song title, but it’s a great two minutes of song. Anyone out there familiar with Tex Thomas?

Song is “Start Again”, by Harvey Thomas Young, from his solo CD on Mapleshade Records
with guest Junior Brown. His band is Tex Thomas and his Danglin’ Wranglers; their 2 CDs are on CDBaby.

I got news for you, JoePug: I don’t know who this guy is, but it sure as heck ain’t Harvey “Tex Thomas” Young. And if he says he is, he should be shot at sunrise or sooner. Somebody got their story wrong on this one. Hearme?!

The song is actually called “Deep Dark Wells” . While Joe admittedly thought it was called “Start Again” when he first started covering the song, he credited it properly on his latest release – Joe Pug: Live at Lincoln Hall. David, I think you can cool off now. Happy New Year.
