 The Reverend Horton Heat

Australian Tour!

 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, right?
So, ladies and gents, roll your smokes up in your sleeve and hold on to your cowboy hats, it’s time to take a trip back to a time before slick, over-produced country became the norm, a time when outlaws wrote songs about being without a pot to piss in, or at least about psycho ex-boyfriends and deadbeat girlfriends that spend your paycheck faster than you can say Lone Star.

 Having released Laughin’ and Cryin’ in August 09, – a record full of country-heavy tunes about bad habits, well-meaning but clueless husbands, ever-expanding beer-guts and, well, Texas, – the Rev is set to bring his brand of psychobilly mayhem all the way from Texas to Australia in December!
