The Reverend Horton Heat are undoubtedly one of the most popular rockabilly and psycobilly bands, helping to popularise the genre after The Cramps first brought it into the fore. His wild showmanship, wicked sense of humor and tales of debauchery and excess make Jim Heath and his band exciting and entertaining, helping to explain their loyal and enthusiastic fan base.
Having worked as a sound engineer around Dallas and Austin, Jim Heath became inspired by the growing punk and roots rock scene. Having made an impromptu performance of "Folsom Prison Blues" at one of Dallas' clubs, Heath decided to commit to music and form a band.
