Hasil Adkins is a rockabilly god
and, perhaps, the world's greatest one man band
. Bashing away on his guitar
while stomping on drum pedals and rambling on about chicken
, that is), Adkins is somehow the pure
embodiment of rock 'n roll
. Or maybe, he's the opposite of pure, like when something is distilled and there are solids left behind. Hasil Adkins' music
is what's left when you distill
Did I mention his obsession with chicken? In 1955 he recorded the song Chicken Walk. That was followed over the years by such notable works as Chicken Hop, Chicken Twist, Chicken Flop, Chicken Wobble, and Chicken Run.
Anyway, he's a genius.
