Come listen to a sermon from the Reverend!

Submitted by admin on June 8, 2010 – 1:12 pmOne Comment

The Reverend Horton Heat is coming to Warehouse Live on Thursday to preach his gospel of rockabilly madness to the good people of Houston. These guys play within a very specific and under-appreciated genre called psychobilly which was pioneered by the Cramps in the 80s and subsequently picked up by lots of other excellent bands later on. The style has grown into a rockabilly revival with wittier lyrics, a louder volume, and harder slightly punk-like vocals. Even though it includes bands outside the US the entire genre sounds very American in nature. The Reverend Horton Heat has been active since 85 and includes all the trappings of 50’s rockabilly band but with a harder edge, a generous heaping of cynicism, and a mordant sense of humor.
