Hasil Adkins (pronounced "Hassle," not "Haysil") (April 29, 1937 – April 26, 2005) was an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. His genres include country, rock and roll, and blues, though he was frequently considered rockabilly and sometimes primitive jazz. He generally performed as a one-man band, playing guitar and drums at the same time.
With his 45 recordings of "Chicken Walk" appearing on Air Records in 1962 and "She Said" on Jody Records in 1966, Hasil's original, frenetic sound meshed with demented lyrics ushered in the genre known as psychobilly. He is also responsible for the birth of Norton Records and a suggestive dance called the "The Hunch".
