The Book of James

Colorful characters fill James McMurtry's Tex-rock sound

McMurtry and his small combo toured relentlessly, also releasing Where'd You Hide the Body in 1995 and It Had to Happen for Sugar Hill two years later, after Columbia dropped him from its roster. McMurtry, in the meantime, had moved to Austin in 1989 and still lives there today with his wife and eight-year-old son.

Though McMurtry may seem tight-lipped in both conversation and on record, he's really just a thoughtful guy who chooses his words carefully. Even if he's talking to Delta or United or TWA. After all, he is the son of a novelist.

James McMurtry performs Thursday, April 22, at McGonigel's Mucky Duck, 2425 Norfolk. Two shows, beginning at 8 p.m. (smoke-free) and 10 p.m. Tickets are $12. Call (713)528-5999.
