POLLY URETHANE by UNKNOWN HINSON
Unknown Hinson, is a comedic country musician, songwriter, and voice actor on the Adult Swim cartoon Squidbillies.
Unknown Hinson, dressed in his signature rodeo tailor coat and black ribbon necktie, is a dark parody of the country western stars from the early/mid 20th century. With his glued on sideburns, blacked out front teeth, and dark hair slicked back to reveal a prominent widows peak, he has been referred to as the “hillbilly vampire.”
The self-proclaimed “king of country-western troubadours” speaks and sings with an authentic southern drawl, commonly pronouncing words like woman “womern,” and window “winder.” Hinson’s personality is that of a hell-raising and hard-drinking country western singer with a preference for “party liquor,” sexy womerns, and fine guitars.
Unknown Hinson writes his own music, performs live, and produces all of his own recordings. His music often parodies the dark elements of today’s country and redneck culture. Unknown Hinson’s album “Target Practice” was never made available in music stores in the US; it can be found on his official website.
His 2002 album “Rock n Roll Is Straight From Hell” is now out of print and difficult to find. In early 2009, Hinson’s ‘Torture Town’ won in The 8th Annual Independent Music Awards and Vox Pop vote for Best Alternative Country Song “Torture Town”. He is also notable for his unique voice, his blacked-out teeth and rebel yell.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD by CHARLIE RICH
Charles Rich (Charlie) (December 14, 1932 – July 25, 1995) was an American country music singer and musician. A Grammy Award winner, his eclectic-style of music was often hard to classify in a single genre, playing in the rockabilly, jazz, blues, country, and gospel genres.
In the latter part of his life, Rich acquired the nickname The Silver Fox. He is perhaps best remembered for a pair of 1973 hits, “Behind Closed Doors” and “The Most Beautiful Girl”. “The Most Beautiful Girl” topped the U.S. country singles charts, as well as the pop singles charts.
He died in his sleep on July 25, 1995, in a Hammond, Louisiana motel. He was 62 years old. The cause of death was a blood clot in his lung. He was buried in the Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee.

I’m pretty sure if you don’t own this album, then you’re in violation of a some sort of law somewhere and should turn yourself into the police or go out and buy it today.
One of my all time favorites, Unknown Hinson is coming to town in concert at The Jewish Mother on Jan. 7th.
Yes, I will be there.
Meanwhile, at the Unknown Hinson concert…
It was an awesome show.
