Biography

Recently, the Reverend Horton Heat, aka Jim Heath, had something along the lines of what he calls an epiphany.

He's a little tired of being taken so seriously-well, maybe not seriously, exactly, but you get the idea-and lately he's noticed that some of his funnier, country-tinged songs were his biggest crowd pleasers. Besides, being entertaining is what this is all about, ... Read more in Amazon's Reverend Horton Heat Store

Reverend Horton Heat is the MAN!!!
WickedTree
Scorching guitar licks, his throaty 2-pack-a-day voice, and Taz's thunderous drum beats blur the line between punk and country. way to go!
JASON E ROGERS
Without a doubt, this LP is hands down the best album the Rev ever put out.

Don't listen to anyone who says anything bad about this album... This is the first reverend album I ever bought, It's the one I've listened to the most, and it is still hands-down the best. Smoke em if ya got em is a tad sophmoric, though it was a brilliant start, liquor in the front is a little harder (can you say Al Jourgenson) and lacks a little of the rockabilly feel but is probably the second best... martini time and space heater begin to waiver and get a little pop and we aren't going to talk about Spend a night in the box.... Lucky 7 tried to get back to the real Reverend feel, but we have to accept the Rev is mellowing out and getting a little older, his music is heading the way of Chet Atkins (not that that is a bad thing) but If you really wanna know what it feels like to be bombarded with pure Psychobilly fury you buy this album! Jim Heath is one of the most talented guitar players on the planet, Jimbo Wallace plays the fastest slap bass I know and this album hits hard.... Go buy a bowling shirt and an old car.... then pop this cd into your deck and just crank it and drive.... The Reverend is a God among men.... he makes lesser guitar players quiver and every track on this cd is perfect.... no question.. I've listened to a lot of Rockabilly, Psychobilly and Swing and heard some great friggin bands (side note check out Deke Dickerson and the Ecco-Phonics) but I always come back to the Rev cause he knows what it's all about... fast cars, fast woman, booze, drugs, steak, Satan, Texas, and Rock and Roll!

If you haven't seen this man live, you haven't lived. If you aren't hooked by the very first track on this album, you're way too square. The Reverend Horton Heat is one of THE most talented guitar players in showbiz today. Allow me to testify...
Track 2. 400 BUCKS This song is the illegitimate child of Hank Williams and the Ramones. From the get go, you know the Rev's angry. Scorching guitar licks, his throaty 2-pack-a-day voice, and Taz's thunderous drum beats blur the line between punk and country. way to go!
Track 3. DEVIL'S CHASIN' ME What Rev. review would be complete without Jimbo Wallace being mentioned? A marvel on the Doghouse bass, Wallace keeps a steady, stone cold groove on this track. And as always, the Heater keeps reinventing the guitar solo. Excellent song for driving (or getaway) music.
Track 6. BEER:30 The title says it all! This whole album is good drinking music, but by and large, #6 is the best. This song is rowdy, loud, fast and great fighting music.
Track 9. BALES OF COCAINE Quite possibly the Reverend's most popular song, this one is rockabilly at its finest. This is a very clever song, and once more, the Reverend doesn't disappoint on the guitar.
If you ever get a chance to listen to Reverend Horton Heat, give this album a spin. You won't be disappointed.

Without a doubt, this LP is hands down the best album the Rev ever put out. Subsequent releases aren't bad, but they just... don't... quite... have it.
"Beer" is the party swing stomper that I played one night and it got everybody on the dance floor like you wouldn't believe. I followed it up a little later with "Big Little Baby" and it was gangbusters pt.2.
"Bales of Cocaine" is the comedy number the ... Surfers would kill for, "The Devil's Chasing Me" would have Brian Setzer scrambling for cover, and "400 Bucks" is worth the price of the CD alone. If you're looking for one RHH album to buy, this is the essential one.

A fantastic album with great songs and God-like guitar playing. The sound on this one is pretty raw and the music jumps out of the speakers and grabs you by the throat. I have no problem admitting that I've played air guitar to "Devil's Chasing Me" on more than one occassion.

This album was the first I'd ever heard from Reverend Horton Heat. At the height of the grunge craze, when Sub Pop ruled the world in '93 or so, a friend played me this album. I'd never heard anything like it; a modern version of rockabilly that made the Stray Cats look like Perry Como. All these years later, I have now owned about 4 copies of Full Custom Gospel Sounds, plus a few more RHH albums, none of which have the pure rock n roll energy that this one has. My personal highlights are 400 Bucks & Wiggle Stick. Definitely THE Rev Horton Heat album to buy

I got introduced to the Rev. Horton Heat about ten years ago, and recently picked up this CD. Thought it was great then, and I'm glad to say, still gets me going. The Texas punked-up rockabilly pretty much cooks throughout this CD until the end, when it sort of runs out of gas and degenerates into filler.
Those of you, such as myself, not into sophomoric lyrics will want to pass on "Wiggle Stick", a pointless ode to a critical part of his anatomy and "400 Bucks".
But all in all, a pretty rockin' good time.

this album is not only one of the reverend's best efforts, it is simply one of the best rock'n'roll albums ever. with break-neck tempo tracks like "400 bucks" (a true story, by the way), "big little baby", and ""edge of houston", this cd shows what a tight, fast, hard band these three texans are. the best song on it is "lonesome train whistle", which has an extended guitar solo which will make any guitar player fall down and cry. "bales of cocaine" shows the rev still has his sense of humour. overall, an incredible album.
