    Reverend Organdrum: Jim Heath (vocals, guitar); Tim Alexander (organ); Todd Soesbe (drums).
    When psychobilly legend the Reverend Horton Heat confided in B3 maestro Tim Alexander that he wanted to improve his guitar skills, Alexander offered to back him up playing spare bass lines and countermelodies on organ. Adding Texas drummer Todd Soesbe, they formed Reverend Organdrun and recorded HI-FI STEREO, an undeniably infectious tribute to '60s instrumental rock. Ventures-style surf, Booker T. & the MGs-style groove, and even mod nuggets such as the "James Bond Theme" are all given worthy workouts by Jim Heath and Co. HI-FI STEREO, right down to its cover art, is a full-blown genre exercise, albeit an exquisite one. However, diehards looking for the Reverend's famous hell-summoning energy may want to stick with his main gig's output.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (p.77) - "Over the course of 18 tracks, the trio explores a plethora of vintage roots-style genres, including soul and funk, television and movie themes, a bit of surf, and other well-known tunes..."
    No Depression (p.74) - "[T]he mostly instrumental trio plows it way through some basic roots music....It's the organ playing of Tim Alexander that stands out."
    Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]winging retro party action. Alexander takes centre stage on a mostly instrumental set..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The feelgood factor is high here. It's the kind of fare that provided the musical go-go to the best of parties in films of the '60s, where Hammond sounds swirled amid a sea of energetic guitar breaks."
