Back before Jesus Christ Allin became "The Highest (heroin) Power" who threw shit on everyone, Kevin Michael Allin was worshipping at the altar of Stiv Bators & that ain't no bad thing!

This here - the first album from back in 1980 - is chock full of snotty pop-punk. I usually (always) hate that kind of shit, but GG was over the top lyrically from the beginning.

While you either loved him or hated him, there is absolutely NO ONE who even comes close to the "violent rock 'n roll madman furious-style" that GG lived. Sadly, he never fulfilled his plan of "taking myself out onstage -and a few others as well". Heroin, alcoholism, various addictions, incarceration, & metal-state deterioration turned him into a pathetic mess in the end. Honestly though - I miss the fuckin' dude - used to be every week for me back in the day that folks were talking about what GG did at his last show, etc.

R.I.P. Scumfuc!

  1. I have given his music valid try and generally can't really get into it. But there is one song that he did I believe later on before he died - "Up Against The Wall" (Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoCDvY2iJtI)

    This song is so godamn awesome. And for the record - I first heard of GG from all the references Mike Patton used to make about him during FNM live banter. Cheers to you Lo Res.

    1. Try this song GG & ANTiSEEN http://youtu.be/_jaFK3XRvUc

  2. Kielbasage -

    "Up Against the Wall" is from a session in 192 w/ The Jabbers - same as this stuff I posted, soundwise - so that's why it's so awesome.

    GG was so much cooler than Mike Patton - well, maybe "cool" is the wrong word, but um, rock n roll is not dangerous by any means these days & never will be again. I guess that's what I miss about GG...

  3. Another awesome post! Hey, did you catch his 'cameo' on The Cleveland Show? Hilarious!
