TICKETS AVAILABLE VIA CENTRAL ARKANSAS TICKETS. CLICK HERE!
Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heath’s imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He’s a time-traveling 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 experience. Flames come o the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Reverend 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 Exploitation picture from the 1950′s that’s currently taking place in the future.
Listening to the REVEREND HORTON HEAT is tantamount to injecting pure musical nitrous into the hotrod engine of your heart. The Reverend’s commandants are simple.
AND LIVE TRUE.
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 Rev’s music is the perfect soundtrack to the DriveIn Movie of your life.
Jim Heath & Jimbo Wallace have chewed up more road than the Google Maps drivers. For twentyve Psychobilly years, they have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showman ship, and mythic imagery.
“Okay it’s time for me to put this loaded gun down, jump in my Five Oh Ford, and nurture my pig on the outskirts of Houston. I’ll be bring ing my love whip. See y’all later.” Carty Talkington – Writer/Director
