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 (sex/sexy women, 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 rock music.

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.
