Timeline of Jim Heath


On July 31, 2017 it was announced via the band’s Facebook page that long time drummer Scott Churilla had left the band. No details were given on the cause for the split; only that the band wished him luck in the future. On August 11, 2017 the band announced Scott’s replacement, Arjuna “R.J.” Contreras, formerly of the band Eleven Hundred Springs, would be handling all drum duties and that the band was currently in the studio recording a new album. No details of its release have been given.

Matt Jordan of West Virginia joined the band full-time in September 2017 playing piano and organ as well as doing some singing.


Within several weeks of starting to play as Reverend Horton Heat, Heath began recruiting local musicians to play with him—sometimes unrehearsed. The very first show of Reverend Horton Heat with a band consisted of Heath, Jack Barton, Peter Kaplan and Tim Alexander. As Tim Alexander had a full-time gig with “Asleep at the Wheel”, the band became a trio, However, Tim Alexander played piano, organ and accordion on many RHH albums as well as playing organ in Heath’s side project “Reverend Organ Drum”. Kaplan would be replaced by Mike Goodsell on drums. Then Mike Goodsell was replaced by Bobby Baranowski, formerly of the Werewolves and Lou Ann Barton.

Victory Records signed Reverend Horton Heat in 2012, and an album titled Rev was released on January 21, 2014. A YouTube video for a single on the album, “Let Me Teach You How To Eat,” was officially released on November 12, 2013.


The group formed in 1986, playing its first gigs in Dallas’s Deep Ellum neighborhood. Its current members are Jim “Reverend Horton” Heath on guitar and lead vocals and Jimbo Wallace on the upright bass. The band signed to Victory Records on November 27, 2012, and released its 12th studio album, Whole New Life, on December 4, 2018.

In May 2012 it was announced that previous drummer Scott Churilla would be returning to the band full-time.


The band released their one and only album with Simmons, the country flavored “Laughin and Cryin with the Reverend Horton Heat”, in September 2009.


In 2006 drummer Scott Churilla left the band and joined fellow former Sub Pop group The Supersuckers. He was replaced by Paul Simmons, formerly of Legendary Shack Shakers and Petra.


“Psychobilly Freakout”, and later “Wiggle Stick”, were both featured in video segments on the show Beavis and Butt-head. The song “I Can’t Surf” was part of the soundtrack of the video game Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, published in 2001. “Psychobilly Freakout” was used on a commercial for Buell American Motorcycles and a slightly altered version was featured in the game Guitar Hero II and later on Guitar Hero Smash Hits. Their song “Baddest of the Bad” is featured on the soundtrack to Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground. The 1997 PC video game Redneck Rampage also includes two of their songs: “Wiggle Stick” and “Nurture my Pig!” The song “Big Red Rocket of Love” is featured on the video game MotorStorm for the PlayStation 3 and a slightly altered version of the song was featured in a 1999 television commercial for the Mazda Miata. The song “Pride of San Jacinto” is featured on the video game Hot Wheels Turbo Racing. The song “Let Me Teach You How To Eat” was featured in a 2017 Subway commercial.


Reid’s role as manager/booking agent came to an abrupt halt in April 1992 after it was learned that Reid was stealing money from the band. After another stint of Heath booking more tours for the band, Heath hired Scott Weiss as his manager/booking agent, and Weiss continues in that capacity with his company Atomic Music Group.


Weiss immediately went to work at finding a major label for Reverend Horton Heat. He was successful at getting Interscope Records to co-release the album “Liquor in the Front” with Sub Pop as well as securing a three-record deal. With Weiss, Reverend Horton Heat has not been without a record deal since the 1990 signing with Sub Pop Records.

Around 1990, drummer Kelly Patrick “Taz” Bentley joined the band just in time to record the first album. Taz played on the first three albums and stayed with the band until just after the release of “Liquor in the Front”. Taz was replaced by Scott Churilla on drums.


In early 1989, at exactly the same time of Rev. Horton Heat’s first release, a seven-inch 45RPM single “Big Little Baby” on the label Four Dots owned by Carl Finch of Brave Combo, Barton and Baranowski both quit the band even though the band was doing well in multiple markets (Dallas, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Oklahoma City and Nashville). “Big Little Baby” was a limited pressing and is now somewhat rare. So, with future gigs on the books, the earliest being only two weeks away, Heath called Wallace and asked him to be in the band.


Around 1985, Heath was known as “Big Jim the Sound Guy” by those who frequented two warehouses that by night became music venues, Theater Gallery and The Prophet Bar while playing with. Theater Gallery owner Russell Hobbs nicknamed Heath “Horton”. Heath used the old Sweetbriar PA system to earn extra money, running sound for bands such as the New Bohemians, End Over End, Dino Lee, Shallow Reign, Burning Desire, The Textones and Three on a Hill as well as doing sound reinforcement for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flaming Lips, The Pandoras, Husker Du, The True Believers and Michael Stipe from REM.


Heath had married a former bandmate from Sweetbriar, Jenny Turner, and together they had a child, Kendall; they decided that the rock-and-roll lifestyle was over and that it was time to have normal adult jobs. But in 1982, Ted Roddy and Heath started a mainly rockabilly group called Teddy and the Talltops with Phil Bennison aka “Homer Henderson” on bass and Jas Stephens on drums. Heath also moonlighted on some gigs with “The Hot House Tomato Boys” from Fayetteville, Arkansas. The band also included long time friend Tim Alexander.


Heath’s first band was 50s cover group called “Chantilly” featuring David McNair, C.A. Flores, David Flores and Sara Flores. However, Heath was more into blues and not really good enough to be in the band and was kicked out. So Heath went to practicing. Within a year, Heath played in a cover band called Southern Comfort with friends from W.B. Ray High School, David McNair, Jeff Nolte, Sam Reid, Steve Hall, before attending the University of Texas at Austin in the fall of 1977. At UT, he often entertained friends and dormmates and was often found playing in the stairwells at Moore-Hill Dormitory late into the night. Heath left school in the spring to join up with a touring cover band by the name of Sweetbriar. Three years later, former dormmate David Livingston, now in his senior year of school and at home visiting family, saw a familiar face on stage and reunited with Heath.


The Reverend Horton Heat is the stage name of American musician Jim Heath (born November 2, 1959) as well as the name of his Dallas, Texas-based psychobilly trio. Heath is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. A Prick magazine reviewer called Heath the “godfather of modern rockabilly and psychobilly”.
