Tuff Enuff is fun Texan boogie rock

The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been around in several incarnations, probably their most successful period has featured Kim Wilson and for a couple of albums Jimmy Vaughan, the brother of guitar maestro Stevie Ray.

This is easy to listen to music, not soft, and not heavy, but a little rambunctious and a little bit of piss taking as Texans do. Probably the Tex Mex genre has had several artists like Los Lobos, the boogie rock genre spills out of that and The Fabulous Thunderbirds have a great name and a consistent album of songs. They keep punching them out and every now and then they get some radio play here in Australia, but mainly they are masters of their Texan turf.

The music has a hint of blues, a hint of latin rythym but sits on a fence. Not in the cerebral, brain food category, but easy to listen and enjoy at any time of the day.
