GUIDE TO GG ALLIN PART II

Eat My Fuc

At last, here we have the long awaited Part Deux to Jason Litchfield’s painstakingly researched and compiled TB Guide to GG Allin (1977-1986). The first installment aired some time back, and you can go here to catch up if you missed the first episode. Quite honestly, this is probably the coolest article we’ve ever had the pleasure of running in TB, and we thank Mr. Litchfield profusely for all his hard work. This is precisely the sort of content I hoped to have for TB when we started this thing so long ago. We need more contributions like this from all of you collector scum lurking out there. Share the knowledge. Show off those records. Bring the collections out of the closets and storage boxes for the world to see. We want more articles like this. Drop the editor a line if you’re up to the task. In fact, I dare anyone to come up with something as good as this. Anyway, feast your eyes on The TB Guide to GG Allin Part II and we’ll be back shortly with some reviews. Bite it. You scum.

  1. Fantastic stuff again!

    Re this:

    “The story from here on in is quite documented, so this discography ends just shy of the reissue deluge.”

    Sure – but we want YOU to document it! Nothing else will do. Please – we beg you. (Well I do, anyway).

  2. Wow!!! By far, the single most comprehensive review of G.G. Allin’s career I’ve ever seen – and it only covers a short period! I’m really looking forward to the next installment. Lots of information that I’ve never even known, like the actual Cedar Street Sluts release. For the longest time I had thought it was called Misadventures Of A Total Slut. My favorite G.G. Allin release, next to You’ll Never Tame Me and his work the The Murder Junkies.

    Surprised to learn that yet ANOTHER song was a cover, but then those 5 songs seemed better written than most other of his songs, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. Here’s another surprise that’s recently come to light, and one that nobody, not even you apparently know. The song Sluts In The City, perhaps his best ever song, is indeed also a cover! And it’s even more surprising than covering Nancy Sinatra – it’s from a shortlived power pop band called Candy! I have no clue why he would, or how he’d even know about them, but it’s a conversion of a song called Kids In The City. What’s even more surprising is how there’s absolutely no mention of it anywhere. Download the album here, and see for yourself:

    It’s a fucking great album too.

    And don’t stop here; you just tackled the most confusing part, but it doesn’t get any easier with the 30 versions of Banned In Boston and partial rereleases of Murder Junkies and Suicide Sessions. Looking forward to the next part!
