Anthony (Tex) Doughty (born 30 July 1963 in Crawley, Sussex, England) is an English rock musician. He was a member of a number of punk bands in the late 1970s, including Peroxide Romance, X-Ray Spex,[citation needed] The Outpatients and The Moors Murderers. In 1986, he and Dave Parsons joined fellow musicians Wendy James and Nick Sayer to form Transvision Vamp in which he adopted the pseudonym Tex Axile (a pun on tax exile). After they split up, Doughty joined a band called Max with Matthew Ashman, Kevin Mooney, John Reynolds and John Keogh in which he played keyboards. They released a Trevor Horn produced album, Silence Running in 1992.

Keogh died soon after the release, and Ashman followed a couple of years later. Doughty continues to release solo albums on his own record label.

Doughty also has a number of acting credits to his credit, including appearing in the film, I Hired a Contract Killer with Joe Strummer and Nicky Tesco, as well as appearing with Michael Clarke in Hail The New Puritan.
