Hasil Adkins - "No More Hot Dogs"

A friend sent over this Halloween beauty, "No More Hot Dogs," from Appalachian psychobilly pioneer Hasil Adkins a few weeks ago and it's full of wonderfully devious cackles and the quintessential evil-doer maniacal laugh. Adkins, who performed as a one-man band, constructed his first guitar at age 10 and recorded the majority of his material in a shack with a home tape recorder. Talk about bad ass. Said track, "No More Hot Dogs," was originally released back in 1955 via Norton Records on the LP Out To Hunch. Here's a choice lyrical selection: "Now honey, don't you be afraid / Because I'm going to cut your head off about a half past 8. / Just like I said, I'm gonna cut your head off / And you can eat no more hot dogs." Happy Halloween.

  1. Great choice...for the next year, let it be the Gravedigger V, San Diego 80s garage band on the Voxx label.
