Synopsis

Industrial rockabilly anyone? From the galloping instrumental opener "Big Sky" to boozy, hard luck parables like "Baddest of the Bad" and "Liquor, Beer and Wine," this is greasy, blues-based roots music that rocks amazingly hard. Credit for the ear-clobbering sound goes to producer Al Jourgensen of Ministry fame. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

"Poker In The Rear".
H3@+h | VT | 04/18/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Though they're all good, this is probably his most popular, and best album. It rocks suprisingly hard, and I don't know of anything as good in the genre. The combo of "Big Sky" and "Baddest Of The Bad" is an excellent start. "Five-O Ford" and "I Can't Surf" are both pretty aggressive, while "In Your Wildest Dreams" is almost lounge-ish. There's also a good dose of humor running through alot of these songs, and mostly in the last track. The "Reverend Horton Heat" may be called rock-a-billy, but he's no "Stray Cats", unless you cross him with "Ministry" that is. "Holy Roller" is his "Best Of" by the way."
Fast cars, fights, sex and alcohol...

"Best double-entendre album title ever...Liquor In The Front - Poker In The Rear. This sucker rocks hard and needs to be played loud. Sounds like The Cramps on steroids. Produced by Al Jourgensen (Ministry) it even has an industrial-rockabilly number called "Yeah, Right". All the songs are about fast cars, fights, sex and alcohol. My personal favorite is "Five-O Ford". Another fave is "Jezebel" which I would have sworn was a cover but it was written by the band. They also do a disgusting drunken version of "The Entertainer""

"First off, let's talk title. As in, title of this record. "Liquor in the Front...Poker in the Rear." Get it? I hope so. Juvenille? Yep. Sophmoric? You got it. Tongue planted firmly in cheek? You know it. But who cares?! This is the Reverend Horton Heat! He's out to burn up your house party with his unique brand of rockabilly on steroids. And that's a good thing. No, strike that. It's a great thing! We NEED this music. And Jim Heath delivers.

"Liquor in the Front" features 13 tracks produced by industrial king, Al Jourgensen. He of Ministry & Revolting Cocks fame. He brings a lil' bit of a left turn to the recording but it's still The Rev. & still amazing.
Amped-up tracks like "Big Sky," "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'," and "I Can't Surf" will make your ears bleed red. While "Baddest of the Bad," "Liquor, Beer & Wine" and "The Entertainer" will make you grin from ear to ear as you polish off another gin & tonic. Thank God for Reverend Horton Heat!"
