Jim Heath, aka The Reverend Horton Heat...
Formed in 1985, THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT exploded on the scene by playing gigs around their hometown of Dallas, Texas, mixing elements of surf, country, punk, big band and rockabilly to create a genre that took the world by storm. Often imitated, never duplicated, the Rev has continued to garner the support of both the underground rockabilly/ psychobilly scene and mainstream critics. Throughout the band's million plus album selling career, their music has been featured in countless TV shows, movies and commercials, it's impossible to deny the powerful force that is THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT. They continue to electrify audiences time and time again with their incredible stage presence, rock 'n roll charisma and contagious energy.
Ready to revive a genre that's been watered down for years, THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT have jump started their headlining STEWED, SCREWED and TATTOOED tour that will ignite over fifty-seven cities across the US this Winter and throughout 2013. Lemmy from MOTORHEAD said it best, "Reverend Horton Heat, he's great and plays the music he believes in and nothing else. Go see him or I'll kill you!" Prepare to rock harder than you have ever rocked before!
Watch for the announcement of THE REVEREND HORTON HEAT's debut Victory Records release in 2013 and stay tuned for updates!
'Thanks for sending the 22 47 SE. It's perfect. I hooked up the 22 47 SE with one of my new super cool mic cords and cut a vocal track. It sounded perfect and amazing. So I was thinking hmmmm maybe there is something wrong with the P-67. So I did a little shoot-out. They both sounded good and actually very similar. I could hear a slightly brighter quality or slightly less lows from the P-67. However, it was slight. I think that the difference makes the 22 47 SE better for my voice. I've then done other lead vocal tracks with great results with the 22 47 SE, and other upright bass, guitar amp and other stuff with the P-67. So.... I need both.
It's so funny, I remember a producer named Paul Leary telling me to NOT use a Neumann 67 for my voice. He may have been right. I think you guys have this thing nailed.
Anyway, I can't live now without the P-67 up and a few feet back from my guitar amp and the 22 47 SE for my vocal.
Thanks for the cords too! Beautiful!.'
