The Future Is Unknown

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
As is perhaps appropriate for an act called Unknown Hinson "Named after his father...on his birth certificate: Mama -- Miss Hinson, Daddy -- Unknown", the press biography is pure fiction, while the press photo depicts a person who appears to be a cross between a 1950s country & western star and a vampire. Indeed, Hinson makes that combination explicit in "I Make Faces When I Make Love," pronouncing Dracula "Drackler," and singing, "Belly Lugosi and Boris and Lon/Made women scream when they come on/I tell you right where they went wrong/They couldn't sing a country western song."

Unknown Hinson can, however, if in an exaggerated manner. In his fruity accent, "women" comes out "wuhmerns." But, of course, this is country comedy music, full of vulgar references to sexual relations albeit without obscenities, as Hinson sings about inflatable dolls "Polly Urethane", "Lingerie," homosexuality "Your Man...", and sex-change operations "Man to Man". Now and then, he moves from twangy country to rock rhythms and screaming guitar solos, if only to send up rock culture "Hippie Girl," "Rock 'n Roll Is Straight From Hell". It's all in fun, and there are some excellent candidates for the Dr. Demento radio show, even if this isn't the most original comedy around.
