The good Reverend really is a Reverend. In fact, he’s from a family line of Reverends that could be found at tent revivals, handling snakes and preaching the word on the Navajo reservation when he was a lad. He and his brother, Backslider, took to music together, getting into metal, the blues, country – anything they could get their hands on. In the capable hands of the Reverend and his partner keeping time – Alex “Brother Al” Hebert on drums – the blues becomes a garage-y, trance blues, fire and brimstone, holy-rollin’ git-down. He likes it greasy and gritty and sings into a beer can. Amen!
