Although all of The Reverend Horton Heat's albums are well worth the scratch, this, his first, is still the best. Much more than a novelty act, the Reverend (Jim Heath) and the boys churn up a raw, smoking, frothy gumbo of rockabilly and swing. The primitive sounding production only adds to songs like "Bad Reputation," "Psychobilly Freakout," and "Marijuana." Totally uncharactistic of anything ever released on Sub Pop, "Smoke "Em If You Got 'Em" finds the Reverend gunning his guitar like a broken down Harley, but managing to get back to the garage before everything falls apart. I saw them open for The Cramps at Detroit's State Theater and they damn near stole the show. Needless to say, every time they've been back since, they've headlined. Best experienced while drinking grain alcohol. Recommended.
