Part vampire, part hard-living ’60s country crooner, part guitar virtuoso, Unknown Hinson’s undead white trash voice is known to most as that of Early Cuyler on Adult Swim’s Squidbilllies. The “real” Unknown’s world isn’t far off from Early’s. Brilliant lyrics lay down the Hinson law on women, drink, drugs (he don’t take dope, hayull nope), violence, and Dracklers, sung against the backdrop of classic country arrangements. Odes, ballads, and rockers fill the Hinson repertoire, with titles such as “I Make Faces When I Make Love,” “I Won’t Live in Sin With You,” and “I Aint Afraid of Your Husband.”
