The Reverend Beat-Man

DSC_0043_800

Do you like one-man-bands? well, I do. And this one is quite incredible.
The guy above is known as Reverend Beat-Man and is from Bern, Switzerland and he plays garage rock , raw and sick like there was no tomorrow. I saw his performance at Salsomaggiore’s Festival Beat 2012 and it has been love at first sight. He played his stuff together with his children which I would call a great way to educate the offspring, ahahah! They have been LOVELY so I said “ok, I must take a picture of the best family I EVER saw”. This photo above is what I got. Unluckly I was so hasty that I screwed the aperture so that the boy is now out of focus. Nonetheless I had to publish this, for the reasons I told you before.

Talking about music, this is what he says about himself:

1983 he started as a one man band and he is still a one man band, for the Live Shows it’s mostly Reverend Beat-Man alone but he has several guest musicians […] Reverend Beat-Man is a parodie on the fundamentalist TV Church Preachers all Around the world, the Music is Gospel Trash.. gospel means the Truth… […]

Quite self-explanatory, I would say.

Anyway, he is best known for hits like Jesus Christ Twist

Or, I’ve got the Devil inside

He even did some collaborations

I wish I could take pictures of the Beat family again! If you come across one of his concerts, enjoy!
