While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays
guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the
antiperspirant. But don't dismiss him as a novelty act. He's one hell of a talent andhas the music to prove it!
Looking somewhat like Dracula's nasty little brother who spent some hard years
drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown
Hinson translates that vibe to his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly.
The band is now touring nationwide, wowing audiences with outrageous and
campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone.
Hinson’s most recent CD release, "Live and Undead", melds weepy twang, searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone- bad. Recorded at a sold-out show, an enthusiastic honky tonk crowd sings along with the King on every song. Raucous,theatrical and over-the- top, Unknown Hinson isn’t just for the trailer park set
Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of
lead character "Early Cuyler" in the popular show from Cartoon Network -
"Squidbillies". The first four seasons were so well-received that an immediate green light was given to future seasons. Check website for dates and time slots.
