Description

The good Reverend has been ploughing the furrow marked “furious rockabilly based rock ‘n’ roll” for decades now. For the band’s twelfth offering, Jim Heath and long-time Slap-Bassist Jimbo Wallace are joined by two new recruits: Arjuna “RJ” Contreras on drums and Pianist Matt Jordan. On the 11-song collection, the quartet maintain their signature psychobilly sound, blending ‘50s Rockabilly, Punk, Country, Surf, and beyond. Topically, they go for perhaps their most positive material to-date. Of the album, Heath explains: “It focuses heavily on Rock-n-Roll but there is a human interest parallel – songs about growing up poor, vices, marriage, having children and walking the rapturous streets of America.” This album is a blast and despite the stylistic conventions being applied, each track is clearly defined and independent. Great stuff!
