It doesn’t need complexity to create great music. When HANK WILLIAMS wrote „Ramblin‘ Man“ in 1951, he concentrated on two alternating chords. The recording from 1953 is based on a simple rhythm-guitar accompanied by some fiddle and steel guitar that keep in the background. REVEREND ELVIS AND THE UNDEAD SYNCOPATORS manage to even strip down the song a little more. Their version is built around an electric guitar with cool reverb and the Reverend’s charismatic voice. There are some guitar fills included and as well as a low rimclick-rhythm of the snare, nevertheless ist a very minimalistic attempt to concentrate on the core: an atmosphere of unrest that sometimes is like a curse. This dark interpretation is typical for „I Hate People“ (Suzy Q Records) Christoph Kutzer Musicjounalist

Reverend Elvis delivers us a sermon based on the one true message. The message of keeping real music alive, music that is being slowly strangled by the demons of mass-produced plastic pop, music that is having its lifeblood drained by those TV so-called talent shows. From his rock and roll pulpit he is throwing down almighty fireballs upon the puke-spewing unit shifting crap machine whilst thrusting a cold hard needle in his arm to give a blood transfusion straight into the heart of Hillbilly, 50’s Punk, Blues, Psycho Gospel, Country and Rockabilly. Trebuchet Magazin (UK)/ Carl Byron Batson
