I'm sorry but you cannot sit there and consider yourself a "punk" or even utter the word unless you can say you've heard of GG Allin. Not just heard of him, but heard his music. You get five brownie points if you can sit there and say that you've seen him perform live. In fact, you get ten brownie.
I'm sorry but you cannot sit there and consider yourself a "punk" or even utter the word unless you can say you've heard of GG Allin. Not just heard of him, but heard his music. You get five brownie points if you can sit there and say that you've seen him perform live. In fact, you get ten brownie points and a kiss if you actually got hit in the face with his shit at one of his shows.
GG Allin started nothing original but he did leave his obscure mark in true punk history. If not musically, he did physically and mentally. He was a punk a truer sense of the word and it can all be proven on this release. Terror In America Live was recorded in 1993 on his famous tour with NYC band the Murder Junkies, after he did a stint in prison. His music is extremely vile, and is classic new york hardcore. Surprisingly with song titles like " Expose Yourself To Kids", "Outlaw Scumfuck" and "Cocksucking Cannibals", some of the music on this LP is actually quite good if not just amusing. His work with the Murder Junkies is actually some of his finest work. All of which can be found on this release.
What you can't see on this record is his legendary performances in the nude, tragic assault on audience members and watching him defecate onstage and eat it. Maybe even throw it at you.
GG died of an overdose in 1993, but if you'd like to take a gander at what you couldn't see on this LP, try finding the Todd Phillips documentary Hated.
