EDITORS’ NOTES

An unholy storm of R&B, punk, surf, and country, The Full-Custom Gospel Sounds Of was the most demented and entertaining party album of its era. At a time when the rock world was mostly preoccupied with the dour rock of Pearl Jam and Nirvana, songs like “Wiggle Stick,” “Beer:30,” and “Nurture My Pig” reminded listeners that rock 'n' roll could be both kooky and killer. The themes here run toward sex, intoxication, Satanism, and other forms of illicit amusement, but the band are so light on their feet that their provocations seem merry rather than domineering.

I was a sinner until I saw the Reverend Horton Heat….and now I’m going straight to hell.

This is arguably the best Reverend Horton Heat album so far. I got this back in 93 and again in 98 because I had worn out the first CD. The Rev is the hardest working band around (they tour most of the year and put on one hell of a show). If you get a chance to see them live don’t pass it up.

If you can only buy one Rev CD you should work harder and buy them all.

When the REVEREND HORTON HEATER STARTS TO TESTIFY ! W A T C H OUT !!!

BUY this album and save your lame as soul.. Or at least try .... Of course this great music probably only applies to FIGURE 8 RACERS ... and multi tattooed chicks who ride in LOW slung HOT RODS ... and those HOT RODS FROM HELL sounds as if they are going to EXPLODE at any minute.... JUST like the REVEREND HORTON GUITAR RIG ......

The fast pace of wiggle stik, hard rockin 400 bucks, haunting loaded gun,and his signature song not to missed live the devil's chasing me. With out adoubt one of the best guitar players out there.
