On listening to his tunes, Hinson's singing might stir in you a memory: "Where have I heard that most distinctive Southern drawl before?" The answer: cartoons, that's where. Hinson provides the voice of Early Cuyler on Adult Swim's animated late-night program "Squidbillies," which is the most spiritually resonant portrayal of rural Southern archetypes since "Absalom, Absalom!" even if it is just a cartoon about a bunch of redneck cephalopods.
Anyways, if you're not already familiar with Unknown Hinson, but you're a fan of The Cramps, "Squidbillies," Andy Kaufmann, Hasil Adkins, old-school country music or just good old-fashioned campy good times, then I would recommend you get out to this show.
Opening act is the always enjoyable Salty Dogs.
