Reverend Horton Heat
Reverend Horton Heat
Loaded .38s, space heaters, and big skies. Welcome to the lethal, littered landscape of Jim Heath's imagination. True to his high evangelical calling, Jim is a Revelator, both revealing and reinterpreting the country-blues-rock roots of American music. He's a time-travelling space-cowboy on an endless interstellar musical tour, and we are all the richer and "psychobillier" for getting to tag along.

REVEREND HORTON HEAT have been the outlet of this creative mind for 29 years, leading to 10 full-length albums, 3 "best-of" collections, 2 DVD releases and thousands of memorable live performances. Never reaching platinum status or having a #1 radio single hasn?t been a problem for the Rev either, the band has continually been a mainstay of late night television and has toured with legendary acts such as Johnny Cash, Motorhead, Marilyn Manson, The Ramones, and many more, all of whom hold the Rev in the highest regard, as a true music industry legend.

Now, entered into a fresh new partnership with Victory Records, REVEREND HORTON HEAT show no signs of slowing down in 2014. January 21st marks the release of their 11th studio album, appropriately titled REV. The album marks a much lauded return to riff-laden, out-of-control rock 'n roll that fans fell in love with when they first heard "Psychobilly Freakout". The album's first single has already turned heads; "Let Me Teach You How to Eat" is REVEREND HORTON HEAT at its finest: tongue-in-cheek and so catchy, it won't leave your head for weeks.

The band has an incredible tour history and, with major shows and tours already booked throughout the year, will make sure you get the chance to dance one more time! Jim Heath and Jimbo Wallace have chewed up more road than the Google Maps drivers. For twenty-five psycho(billy) years, they have blazed an indelible, unforgettable, and meteoric trail across the globe with their unique blend of musical virtuosity, legendary showmanship, and mythic imagery.

"REVEREND HORTON HEAT, he's great and plays the music he believes in and nothing else. Go see him or I'll kill you!!" Lemmy Kilmister (MOTORHEAD)

Rev your engines and catch the sermon on the road as it's preached by everybody's favorite Reverend. REV is out January 21st.
Flat Duo Jets
Long before the White Stripes, there were the Flat Duo Jets, Dexter Romweber's ferocious guitar-drums duo from North Carolina who blazed through the Eighties and Nineties playing some of the most face-melting roots-rock ever heard. Jack White has paid tribute to the influences of the Jets and the wild-eyed Romweber in a variety of places. In 2009's It Might Get Loud, a guitar summit pairing White with Jimmy Page and the Edge, White declared that seeing the Jets for the first time "opened up a whole new inspiration for me about the guitar." And he was downright effusive in the 2006 cult-classic Romweber documentary Two Headed Cow, calling Romweber "a huge influence on my music… one of the best-kept secrets of the rock & roll underground." In 2009 White recorded a seven-inch with Romweber, and in 2011 he reissued the Jets' long-out-of-print 1991 album Go Go Harlem Baby on his Third Man Records imprint.

Romweber has pursued a solo career since the 1999 wind down of the Jets, garnering further critical acclaim and cementing his legacy a one of American music's great visionaries. On top of recording 10 albums Dex has toured with Cat Power, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Neko Case, Reverend Horton Head and many others.

In 2016. Dex & drummer Crash Laresh released a new Lp as the duo on Jett Plastic Records titled "The Great Jones". Dex & Crash are currently touring and reviving/delivering the old Flat Duo Jets catalog of molten rock 'n roll with a fervor to a whole new generation.
Rosie Flores
Rosie Flores
Award-winning "Girl of the Century", "Working Girl with Guitar" Rosie Flores has gone surfing, knifing her turquoise axe through some new uncharted musical waters.

These past few years have found her nabbing two fan voted Ameripolitan Awards in 2014 - taking one for Best Female Honky Tonk and the other for Best Female Rockabilly; a Peabody Award that she accepted onstage at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City for her narration of the documentary Whole Lotta Shakin; producing Janis Martin's 2012 CD The Blanco Session" which tied at number one with Rosie's Working Girls Guitar on the FAR chart; and a multimedia Janis Martin Tribute that she created and performed at the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012.

All these accolades propelled her into performing at the Chuck Berry Tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with other great musicians including Vernon Reid and David Johansen, which led Rolling Stone Magazine to proclaim that she was "one of the most impressive acts of the evening… and the only performer brave enough to playfully attempt a duck walk."

Her current records are Girl Of The Century (2010 Bloodshot Records) , and Working Girls Guitar (2012 Bloodshot Records). The latest record marks a first for Rosie as she is not only the producer but is the only guitar player, which garnered feature stories in Guitar World, Premiere Guitar and Guitar Player. She penned some new tunes that ride some new waves. Twanging between a rock and a surf place, Rosie fires up the big chord guns on songs that tell some hard earned tales.

Rosie's solos recordings have found homes on both the Billboard and Gavin charts and are featured in seven motion pictures. Her revved-up performances from California to New York have won legions of fans and earned appearances on such nationally broadcast television programs as "Austin City Limits" and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien."

"Flores, a guitar-toting rockabilly singer from Texas, has long been the darling of the country circuits in L.A. and Austin (where August 31 was declared Rosie Flores Day, in 2006). She has a voice that, like Gram Parsons's, cracks in all the right places and an untempered approach to guitar picking that's a wonder to behold." - The New Yorker 'Night Life'

"Rosie Flores is an ambassador of 'Ameripolitan.' She brings rockabilly, honky-tonk and Western swing." - Paul Cambra, Auburn Journal
