Muze PNote Not as slick as the Stray Cats, as traditional as Flat Duo Jets, or as crazed as Hasil Adkins, The Reverend Horton Heat is his own special brand of rockabilly cat. HOLY ROLLER is a fantastic 24-track retrospective that neatly encapsulates the Rev's career-from 1991's SMOKE 'EM IF YOU GOT 'EM to 1998's SPACE HEATER.
Muze PNote As is usually the case with this sort of compilation, themes emerge. The Reverend seems to be preoccupied with the positive effects of inebriation. Such tunes as "Bales Of Cocaine," "Marijuana," "It's Martini Time," "Baby I'm Drunk," and "Eat Steak" glorify excess with tongue planted firmly in snuff-filled cheek. It's difficult to think that a man who'll write a song called "Where In The Hell Did You Go With My Toothbrush?" isn't kidding. The songs are in the classic rockabilly format of guitar, slap bass, and drums, but the trio's fiery, noisy playing blows apart any notion of polite revivalism.

Artist Overview

Like P J Harvey and Alice Cooper, Reverend Horton Heat is a band, although singer/guitarist/guiding light Jim Heath also goes by that moniker. The trio's music centers on Heath's lupine punkabilly guitar riffs (including his trademark "Hurricane" lick, on which he plays lead and rhythm at the same time), charismatic vocals, and funny lyrics. The band started out in the mid 1980s, and their sweaty, famously over-the-top live shows attracted the attention of Sub Pop, who released their first two acclaimed albums. The band was picked up by Interscope for their next three albums and dropped by the end of the millennium, after which the reverend and his boys made their own indie way.

Q (10/99, pp.154,156)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...If you believe in the evangelical power of rock...then this is for you: a howling celebration of self-knowing musical stupidity....For those heavy, heavy drinking sessions."
