Reverend Horton Heat
wsg: Agent Orange & Flat Duo Jets
Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heath’s imagination. True to his high evan¬gelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of Ameri¬can music. He’s a time-travelling space-cowboy on a endless inter¬stellar musical tour, and we are all the richer & “psychobillier” for get¬ting to tag along.
Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative ex¬perience. Flames come off the gui¬tars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Rever¬end Horton Heat show. Jim be¬comes a slicked-back 1950′s 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. It’s like being magically transported into a Teen Exploita¬tion picture from the 1950′s that’s currently taking place in the future.
