Reverend Horton Heat

Sorta sounds like this might be a religious dude.Wrong. Well maybe if you can call music a religion. How does one describe the Rev's music? Hmmmm, Take two parts rockabilly, one quarter cow punk, and one quarter surf, and you've got the psychobilly formula that's earned the Reverend a dedicated flock since the days of his first album Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em. To quote the Rev himself:

If you listen to the band's catalog, you might say there are a few recurring themes found in our songs: beer, gin and tonic, whiskey, cocaine, tequila, martinis, marijuana, cigarettes, cars, more beer, pretty women, sermons, cats and dogs, the devil, Texas, and Jimbo. Not to mention steak and dildos. All the good things in life.
Today's song is the first Horton Heat song I ever heard. Kind of a girl leaves boy and takes all his shit kind of song. It's actually quite sedate for a Heat song. Check it out and you can buy it here if you are so inclined.
