Twanging Tuesday # 34
A longer time passed since I posted real rockabilly in this series. So I thought the time is right to introduce The Reverend Horton Heat a band based in Dallas, Texas. Jim Heath formed this band in 1985 and they are still on work today. He played a real good Gretch-guitar and was influenced by the sound of Dick Dale and The Cramps. Some of their songs could be described as psychobilly. I've seen them in the early 90s and was astonished about their presence. They played their songs very loud with a high energy. One of the true bearers of rockabilly tradition. The second song today is a cover from an also underrated band Guadalcanal Diary.
