Hasil Adkins: Out To Hunch (LP)

(Norton Records) 16 Tracks - 

If somebody was to tell you that there was a guy in the West Virginia hills who's been sittin' in a shack for the past thirty years doin' nothing but writing and recording hundreds upon hundreds of manic rock & roll tunes with demented words about doin' something called the "Hunch," eatin' peanut butter on the moon, decapitating young girls' noggins & hanging `em on the wall, and havin' a gal so ugly she "looked like a dyin' can of commodity meat " you'd probably figger he's been watching too many episodes of Green Acres. But friends, we have the proof here in plastic. You are holding in your hands right now one of the most psychotically wild col-lections of sounds ever to have been captured on wax — the primitive sound of Hasil "Haze" Adkins — the One Man Band. 

Although legend varies as to the demise of his fellow band members, we can be sure that Hasil has managed to incorporate the rhythm & drive of a twenty mule team back up unit into his one-man act. "I can't have no band," he explains. "I like to change to different chords and can't expect nobody to follow me." But when Haze hits the guitar strings he's tappin' on the G-spot of life, daddy! All the material presented here was brewed on the trusted Adkins home tape machine with Hasil playin', singin', and hollerin' each and every note, beat, and scream himself. With a tip of the hat to Chuck Berry, this could well be called Haze's Golden Decade as all the numbers fall neatly in the 1955 - 65 bracket. Despite the vin-tage of his prime goods, we're ironically just entering Haze's REAL Golden Decade. Yup, it took nearly 30 years for these crude tapes to ripen but 1986 finds Hasil Adkins not only a legend based on past glories but a bone fide STAR by cracky, with a slew of successful European releases as well as a promising recording and performing future. 

Included for the first time on a American album are Haze's original 45's from the late 50's/early 60's - "Chicken Walk" (Air), "The Hunch" (Roxie), and the shiner of the whole lot, the classic "She Said" (Jody) plus a host of unreleased gems that make up the meat and potatoes of this party platter. In all the manic frenzy bein' tossed around in these grooves it's tough to make heads or tails where Haze is comin' from, still some influences do shine through: "I'm Happy", the earliest cut from 1955 ("I couldn't afford no drums then, so I hadda stomp it out with my foot") recalls Hasil's idol Jimmie Rodgers and "Let Me Come In" has some Ritchie Valens in it, but for the most part the sound comes from, in the man's words, "me feelin' crazy and wild!" Just dig his "High School Confidential" and try to imagine the One Man Band in the flick roarin' through a hunchin' campus on Jerry Lee's flat bed truck or swing to Haze's over-the-edge 1962 cover of "Rockin' Robin" and then reckon your rock & roll prayers have all been answered. Yeah, when Elvis suggested 'Let's get real, real gone for a change', I'm sure this ain't what he had in mind.

 HASIL ADKINS

 US-Rockabilly-Sänger

 1937- 2005 West Virginia     

                                                                

Hasil Adkins developed an early interest in music listening to country radio and cut his first demos in the late '50s.  However, his first releases (and all time classics  among Rockabilly collectors) like 'She Said' and 'Chicken Walk'  are far away from country music

Hasil "Haze" Adkins was born 29. April 1937 in Boone County and raised in the mountains of West Virginia near Madison where he lived his whole life. He started picking the guitar ever since he was 7 years old. As a matter of fact, he made his first guitar from an old water bucket. At the age of 10 he bought his first guitar and has been in the music business for nearly all his life.

Hasil is a very talented songwriter, he has wrote over 300 songs of all types. He can sit down with his music and have a song wrote within 30 minutes. He is really great and plays music by ear, he does not read lead sheets. Hasil tried to make serval attemts to organize a band together, but bands don't usually stay together very long, so he taught his ownself how to play the drums, high hats, guitar, harmonica and sing all at the same time.

People come from everywhere to watch and hear him sing and play and dance to his great music. They can hardly believe their eyes and ears.... he sounds better than most of the full bands. Hasil's records from the 50's are today collector items, specially the following: She's Gone / The Hunch on the 'Roxie Label', Chicken Walk / She's Mine on the 'Air' Label" Duncens / Jenny Lu on the 'Avenue Label' , She Said / Is This The End on the 'Jody Label'.

Hasil's favorite singing artist is the old Jimmy Rogers, the Daddy of all of them and Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino and The Carter Family. His hobbies where writing songs, hunting, fishing, fixing TV's, radios etc. He died 25. April 2005 aged 67.
