A journey to the dark side with G.G. Allin

G.G. Allin and the Murder Junkies at the Penguin Pub video link

G.G. Allin might not have been anywhere close to the galaxy of being a strong tunesmith, but during the time he was on the planet he was the living embodiment of the dangerous side of rock ‘n’ roll. On May 12, 1993, Allin and his Murder Junkies played a gig at the Penguin Pub. The above linked video (NSFW audio) is believed to be from that show. It pretty much speaks for itself, but what’s not shown is how the gig ended in fights, trashing of equipment and smokebombs. Police had to come to break up that little party.

Allin, who lived on the edge for many years, died of an accidental heroin overdose at the age of 36 just a few weeks later.
