HIGHLIGHT:
The metallic edge and narrative power of the music challenged rock’s dismissal of the rockabilly genre.

“The songs are in the classic guitar-slap, bass-drums, rockabilly format, but the trio’s fiery,noisy playing blows apart any notion of polite revivalism….if you haven’t checked out the Reverend’s live show then you’ve missed one of the most scorching live shows you’ll ever see.” – Michael Henningsen, Tiny Tune
