Psychobilly rocksters Reverend Horton Heat formed a bond with Lemmy Kilmister and Motörhead during tours together. Lemmy did not always give the audience a performance of the Motörhead classic “Ace of Spades,” but the support act did. They have revived their love of the song and their friend by releasing a new studio version.

As would be expected, Reverend Horton Heat frontman Jim Heath takes a robust approach to pacing, but manages to fit in some rockabilly flourishes to his guitar playing. He doesn’t have Lemmy’s death growl on his vocals but delivers them convincingly. Jimbo Wallace on double bass does an outstanding job of keeping up the pace with the original electric bass work, and Jonathan Jeter keeps the drum style simple but effective.
