Kevin Michael “GG” Allin (August 29, 1956 – June 28, 1993) performed and recorded with many groups during his career, the best remembered being The Murder Junkies who released the self titled album via New Rose Records in 1991 however Allin is best recalled for his outlandish live performances, which often included self-mutilation, coprophagia, and assaults on his limited audience, for which he was arrested and jailed on multiple occasions.

His lyrics, which often expressed themes of misogyny, paedophilia, blasphemy and racism, polarized listeners and created stark opinions of him within the punk community. When questioned about his music and shows, Allin regularly replied that he was trying to make rock music “dangerous” again.

Allin promised for many years that he would commit suicide on stage during one of his concerts, he on occasion had local Police Officers in the audience to prevent such an action – instead he died of a heroin overdose on June 28, 1993 following a chaotic gig the previous night in Manhatten. THe venue owner cut the power during the second song, Allin responded by stripping naked, trashing the venue then walking the streets of Manhatten covered in his own faeces for an hour, followed by a group of the gig goers, before arriving at a friends address where Allin took huge ammounts of heroin passed out and was later found dead.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
