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 and reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He’s a time-traveling space cowboy on an endless interstellar musical tour, and we are all the richer and “psychobillier” for getting to tag along.
Seeing Reverend Horton Heat live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal, tribal rock and roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950’s rock and roll shaman channeling Screamin’ Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the stand-up bass. And then there are the “Heatettes.” These 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.
