C.c. Adcock biography

C.C. Adcock (born Charles Clinton Adcock, c. 1971, Lafayette, Louisiana) is a rock and roll musician from noted for his cajun, zydeco, electric blues and swamp pop-influenced sound, and for his efforts to preserve and promote swamp pop music. Adcock has recorded two solo albums, the self-titled C. C. Adcock (produced by Tarka Cordell), issued in 1994 on the Island label, and reissued in 2000 on the Evangeline label, under the title House Rocker; and Lafayette Marquis, issued in 2004 on the Yep Roc label. C.C. Adcock is featured in the True Blood soundtrack. He has performed and recorded with the south Louisiana 'supergroup' Lil' Band of Gold, which, in addition to Adcock, consists of swamp pop pioneer Warren Storm on drums, accordionist Steve Riley of the Mamou Playboys; Richard Comeaux of River Road; and pianist David Egan. Adcock also performed with Lil' Buck Senegal's Cowboy Stew Blues Revue, based in Lafayette. Adcock appears often with swamp pop veterans like Storm, Rod Bernard and Tommy McLain, and in the 1990s he coaxed out of retirement swamp pop pioneers King Karl and Guitar Gable. Despite his frequent association with swamp pop music and its artists, Adcock does not consider himself a swamp pop musician, given the harder edge of his guitar-driven sound, and his experimentation with non-traditional recording techniques.
