Wilson formed his own band, Crown of Thorns, with Barry Palmer and Chris Rodgers on double bass, bass guitar and fiddle, in 1987. Stuart Coupe of The Canberra Times described the group’s sound as “a diverse amalgam, recalling everything from Tim Buckley to Captain Beefheart and American blues”. While Wilson felt his group was not only a blues band as “there’s elements of country and straight rock ‘n’ roll”. Their debut release was a six-track extended play, Gnawing on the Bones of Elvis, which was produced by the band and appeared in April 1988. Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, noted it was “sparsely recorded … [which] mixed one side of electric blues including Willie Dixon’s ‘Bring It on Home’, and one side of acoustic folk tunes”.

Crown of Thorns issued a studio album, Carnival (February 1989), using a line up of Wilson, Palmer and Rodgers, joined by Justin Brady on violin, Barbara Waters on guitar, vocals and mandolin (ex-Hollowmen) and former bandmate Jones on drums. The album was produced by Wilson and Waters with Chris Thompson. McFarlane described it as a “more fully realised work than the debut. [It] mixed blues, country and folk with a great deal of verve and authority”. It contained Wilson’s composition “The Ballad of Slim Boy Fat”, which was a “highlight” of the album with its “spectacular blues/gospel” style. In 1990 the group released another studio album, Babylon, with Wilson, Rodgers and Waters joined by Ashley Davies on drums (ex-White Cross).

Boehm described Wilson as “a big, denim-clad slab of a man with a shaven head and the look of a street tough or a stevedore. In contrast to such reserved performers as Kelly … he had a taste for the monumental. His big, rangy, high-impact voice supported his flair for the dramatic flourish and the grand gesture”. As a performer Wilson showed “a dry, laconic wit between songs, [he] was a fervent, let-it-all-out wailer when he began to sing”.
