Reseña de álbum

Given how the psychobilly/punk/greaser/whatever underground just seemed to grow and grow throughout the '90s, there's every reason in the world to choose this album as one of the things that sparked it off. Little doubt as to why, too, re-recorded on two-track after a more technically complex version was deemed to lack that certain something, Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em fires up strong with "Bullet" and doesn't stop there. Heat's fierce guitar playing is just as perfectly matched by Bentley's anything-but-polite drumming and Wallace's low-end mania, while Heat's occasional wails and yodels add the frosting to a cake, which is very clearly devil's food if anything. From there it's a dozen anti-meditations on everything from the joys of meat eating — "Eat Steak," how much more direct can one get? — to the demon weed "Marijuana" and the perfectly appropriate "Psychobilly Freakout." Heat's killer punch is his wide-ranging approach — AC/DC is as much a reference point for what the heck's going on, as is the classic western swing that inspires "Baby, You Know Who" and the fierce, kicking "Bad Reputation." Imagining what the Bob Wills crew could have done with this one is a fun game to play, though it's doubtful Wills himself would have allowed a line like "You're the kind of girl I like to eat" to surface. It's all sleaze, it's all wrong, and it's all so very, very right. How can anyone say no to the type of song that's a classic swampy rock strut with in-yer-face drumming, fiery solos and a title like "Big Dwarf Rodeo," after all? Credit as well for the great front cover photo that makes Heat look somewhere between the oiliest insurance salesman alive, a refugee from the Nudie suit modeling school, and Elmer Gantry.

Pretty danm good

You don not even have to be a big rockabily fan to enjoy this album. By far the Rev's best

The Rev's Golden Jewl

Believe it or not The Rev. did exist prior to the GH2 hype. His shimmering debut is the greatest example of his musical prowess. Buy it, hear it, live it.

Start Here, I Did.

In 1991 I bought everything I could find on the Sub Pop label, I had a voracious appetite for anything new. I found a copy of "Smoke 'Em" on cassette and it made quite an impression on my 16 year old eardrums. I really like "The Full-Custom Sound..." but this is my favorite "Rev" recording. Truly original, even by psychobilly standards, and a whole lot of fun. Yep, they are amazing live too! I recommend starting with this record, you won't be sorry. One warning, if you are a jaded rockabilly hipster, you may not enjoy the "Rev's" laid back, tongue in cheek rock and roll sounds. Too bad, this is rock and roll, not a four year doctorate program in zoology! If you are a genuine maniac, get a pack of your favorite smokes and a six-pack of Pabst, grab your best girl, take the chopped Mercury cruiser out for a spin and play this record at full volume. Need more insane rock and roll, search for some Flat Duo Jets, New Bomb Turks, Didjits and Supersuckers as well.

The Reverend Horton Heat is perhaps the most popular psychobilly artist of all time, really rivaled only by genre founders the Cramps. The Reverend (as both the three-man band and its guitar-playing frontman were known) built a strong cult following during the '90s through constant touring, manic showmanship, and a twisted sense of humor. The latter was nothing new in the world of psychobilly, and Heat's music certainly kept the trashy aesthetic of his spiritual forebears. The Reverend's true innovation...
