[PSYCHOBILLY G.O.A.T.S] Calling Texas trio Reverend Horton Heat the kings of psychobilly is both a compliment and a curse. It\'s true that no one else has mastered the genre\'s amphetamine cocktail of punk thrash \'n\' gnash and countrified twang with as much precision as the trio of guitarist-sermonizer Jim Heath, bassist Jimbo Wallace and whoever happens to be sitting behind the drum kit on a given tour. But being considered the cream of such a small niche-crop means ruling from the margins. And that’s a shame, because the reality is the band understands rock ’n’ roll—period—better than most. No matter, though: the Rev has already charged through damn near 30 years of cultdom with a rowdy, ear-blasting live show, and though it hasn\'t issued a new studio album since 2009’s Laughin’ and Cryin’ with the Reverend Horton Heat, in terms of its road-warrior status, it doesn\'t look like the band will be drawing back any time soon.
