Performing an idiosyncratic blend of cow-punk, rockabilly, psychobilly, and good old-fashioned rock ’n’ roll, the Reverend built up a following that remains loyal to this day, while at the same time finding new fans. On albums like Smoke ’em if You Got ’em, Liquor in the Front, It’s Martini Time and Spend a Night in the Box, the Reverend and his band Jimbo Wallace and Paul Simmons have concocted some of the wildest sonic cocktails in rock ’n’ roll.

Reverend Horton Heat songs have appeared in commercials for Mazda and Levi’s jeans, as a theme for the 2002 Daytona 500, the popular cartoon Johnny Bravo, and the video games Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and Guitar Hero II. But, by turning each show into a no-holds-barred rock extravaganza, the stage is where the Reverend really delivers. You won't find any newfangled electronic programming or stunt casting on Revival, instead, it's what Reverend Horton Heat does best, 40 minutes of rockabilly, blues and R&B that's ripe and ready for concert treatment and more legendary shows.

And with their fourth album and Vagrant debut, Red Of Tooth And C... more info
