Reverend Horton Heat
2707 Elm Street
with Wayne Hancock, Los Skarnales, The P-Town Skanks Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heaths imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. Hes a time-travelling space-cowboy on a endless interstellar musical tour, and we are all the richer & psychobillier for getting to tag along.Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. Theres nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950s rock & roll shaman channeling Screamin Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand-Up Bass. And then there are the Heatettes. Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming the night away. Its like being magically transported into a Teen Exploitation picture from the 1950s thats currently taking place in the future. Listening to the REVEREND HORTON HEAT is tantamount to injecting pure musical nitrous into the hot-rod engine of your heart. The Reverends commandants are simple.And no band on this, or any other, planet rocks harder, drives faster, or lives truer than the Reverend Horton Heat. These itinerant preachers actually practice what they preach. They live their lives by the Gospel of Rock & Roll.From the High-Octane Spaghetti-Western Wall of Sound in Big Sky to the dark driving frenetic paranoia of 400 Bucks to the brain-melting Western Psychedelic Garage purity of Psychobilly Freakout The Revs music is the perfect soundtrack to the Drive-In Movie of your life.Jim Heath & Jimbo Wallace have chewed up more road than the Google Maps drivers. For twenty-five Psychobilly years, they have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showmanship, and mythic imagery.Okay its time for me to put this loaded gun down, jump in my Five-Oh Ford, and nurture my pig on the outskirts of Houston. Ill be bringing my love whip. See yall later. - Carty Talkington Writer/DirectorRev your engines and catch the sermon on the road as its preached by everybodys favorite Reverend. Dont forget to keep an eye out for the 11th studio album from REVEREND HORTON HEAT, boldly titled Rev, due out January, 21st.
