Who The Hell Is C.C. Adcock?
Who The Hell is C.C. Adcock?
One self-titled album in 1994 and another in 2004 called Lafayette Marquis. Both albums are dirty mojo bags stuffed to over flow with south texass blues and backwoods sleazy swamp town one swangin' blue light house party boogie.
Lafayette Marquis branches down to throw on some textureized filthy mid-period ZZTtopian remixish night tripper-esque voodoo sexy steamy spook funk. Growing up in S.W. Louisiana, years spent as a touring guitarist behind Bo Diddley and Buckwheat Zydeco is bound to skew yr ears to something different and different is a good word to start with when speaking of the music of C.C. Adcock.
The thing that attracts me to Adcock's work is what I look for in the music that I love best and moves me most. That's mystery, freshness, and a twist. I want to hear what I haven't heard before and C.C. Adcock brings it. Adcock keeps one deluxe custom-made steel toe work boot firmly stepping to the future while the other dances and slides confidently in, out, and all around a dirty french alligator Louisian sexy swamp mud under a shiny white hot desert Texan sun draped in sweltering big black moonless Los Angeloan sharkskin traditions.
