Heat Stroke

Pulpit-pounding with the Reverend Horton Heat

But can't a fairly intelligent music fan discern between, say, the faux-Nirvana cheesiness of Bush and the sweaty, down-on-their-knees testifying of Horton Heat? Not when national magazines are telling the kids otherwise, snarls the Reverend, launching into a real pulpit-pounder: "It's ridiculous, and what it reminds me of is when you're a little kid, and the big kids come around and start telling you about sex. Your eyes are wide open and you go, 'Oh, my God! I can't believe people do that! You're kidding!' And they're going, 'Oh yeah! We've done it 100 times!' But once you get older and look back on it, you realize that those older kids did not have the slightest idea what they were talking about. They were all talk."

The Reverend Horton Heat opens for Brian Setzer Orchestra Sun, Dec. 31, at the Warfield in S.F.; call 775-7722.
