Reverend Horton Heat
Loaded guns, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal littered landscape of Jim Heath’s imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing & reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He’s a time-travelling space-cowboy on an endless inter-stellar musical tour, and we are all the richer & “psychobillier” for getting to tag along.
Seeing REVEREND HORTON HEAT live is a transformative experience. Flames come off the guitars. Heat singes your skin. There’s nothing like the primal tribal rock & roll transfiguration of a Reverend Horton Heat show. Jim becomes a slicked-back 1950?s rock & roll shaman channeling Screamin’ Jay Hawkins through Buddy Holly, while Jimbo incinerates the Stand-Up Bass. And then there are the “Heatettes”. Those foxy rockabilly chicks dressed in poodle-skirts and cowboy boots slamming the night away. It’s like being magically transported into a Teen Exploitation picture from the 1950?s that’s currently taking place in the future.
The Delta Bombers
Long nights soaked in whiskey, the powerful emotions of self-love and self-hate, the raw energy of the plasma laced guitar and vocals: These are a few maxims of the Delta Bombers. Formed in 2008 by four teenagers looking for a good time and a release of their rockabilly sensibilities the Bombers' have grown end over end since then in more ways than one. Their humble beginnings have now grown the Las Vegas outfit into world leading roots Rock n' Rollers clandestine and ready for any stage at any time. Not shy of a live show their performances, now legendary the world over, as is their prolific singer song-writer frontman Chris Moinichen. The strike team behind his howling vocals is Andrew Himmler on Guitar, Gregorio Garcia on Stand-Up Bass & PJ Franco on drums. The Delta Bombers exist only to continue what they started: A worldwide Rock and Roll revolution.
