Press Release — GG Allin: You Give Love a Bad Name — 1987 (HMS069) LP/CS

If you haven’t heard of GG Allin, consider yourself lucky. He’s the self-styled New Hampshire wildman of rock, an admittedly brain-damaged individual who lives solely for drugs and cheap sex. GG Allin has been terrorizing audiences from coast-to-coast for close to nine years, with no established record label ever being foolish enough to get near him. His live performances (which rarely last more than 15 minutes and are banned in many regions anyway) are without a doubt the most violent & disgusting the staff of this label have ever witnessed. Masturbation, attempted rape, shooting-up and wrist slashing are staples of any GG Allin gig, not to mention the unbelievable amount of physical abuse Mr. Allin inflicts upon himself. Rarely will a GG Allin show end without the singer (and occas. some audience members) leaving the venue bloody and battered. It was the label’s intent to transfer this in-concerto ambience to the recording studio for GG’s first LP of new material in over 4 years. Famous musicians participating included Mike Edison of Sharkey’s Machine on drums, Mike Kirkland of Prong on bass, Greg Bullock (ex-Teenage Depression) on guitar and Gerard Cosloy (formerly of Venom) on guitar.
