Out To Hunch, released in 1986, is a collection of Hasil Adkins's homemade reel-to-reel tapes from the 1950s and '60s. Full of his strange and crude but equally passionate and exhilarating "psychobilly" tunes, Out To Hunch is a unforgettable rock and roll experience. Granted this crude and crazy one-man band from the southern hills of West Virginia isn't one just anybody can enjoy. But there is a brilliance in Adkins's songwriting and enthusiasm that has to be respected. Nevertheless, this album is a treasure chest of raucous rockabilly rhythms (Err, did I just use alliteration?) and only a brief specimen of work of a mad genius who inspired generations of musicians before his death in Boone County in 2005.
