Regular price €18.00 Sale

Rock & Roll's most controversial rebel. Terrifying, disturbing & pathological. For years, G.G. Allin promised to leave this world with a suicide on stage, preferably on Halloween.
Instead, Allin died a traditional rock & roll death - cocaine and heroin in the veins - which is the only traditional thing he ever did.
In the strictest sense, Allin was not a musician, he was a performance artist with an insatiable desire to shock.
Allin was notorious for performing in the nude, defecating and urinating on stage, smearing excrement all over himself and the audience, attacking the audience, mutilating himself, and ending the show quickly; his last concert lasted under ten minutes and ended in a riot.
His music was the aural equivalent of his stage show - an amateurish, barely competent series of short blasts of loud violence on albums called Eat My Fuck, Freaks, Faggots, Drunks & Junkies, and the aptly titled America's Most Hated.
Eventually, the consequences of Allin's onstage antics caught up to him and he spent several years in jail.
Upon his release in 1993, Allin began touring again, but only for a couple of months; he died on June 28, 1993, in New York, leaving behind a recorded legacy that can only be called vile and repulsive.
