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.
