Hasil Adkins

Real Name:
Hasil Raymond Adkins
Profile:
[April 29, 1937 - April 26, 2005 (aged 67)] He was born and lived in Boone County, West Virginia and was a self taught one man band. The reason for this was because when he first heard Hank Williams on the radio he didn't know there was a band behind Hank. He thought that Hank Williams played all the instruments. He claimed a repertoire of over 9000 songs including over 7000 original compositions. Recurring themes in Adkins' work include love, heartbreak, hunchin', police, death, decapitation, commodity meat, aliens, and chicken. His music has a shared appreciation by the likes of The Cramps and John Zorn.

This is the Holy Grail of ALL music, the rawest and truest and most honest songs from a man who lived a totally psycho-hillbilly life, and put it to music. Nothing can come close to this music of a man singin', playin', and stompin' out experiences in his life in a musical form. NOTHING - not in any genre of expression of life in music in existence. Not just roll over Beethoven, roll over every motherfucker who ever sang a word or played a note. Now just go get the 'Out To Hunch' comp and let it have it's place as the Crown Jewel of your otherwise measly collection of music.
