Part 1: Bored To Death This article originally appeared on the Terminal Boredom website in It has been updated here with corrections and modifications. Written and compiled by Jason Litchfield. GG was a horror show. His face went blank, his mouth hung agape. He began crawling around on the floor like some parasitic reptile just out of its lightless cavern.
If he got near the crowd they pushed him, spit on him, dragged him around like a piece of meat. And through it all he Vánoční Vlak - Noví Zelenáči Mirka Hoffmanna* - Vánoce Starých Kovbojů oblivious. Behind him, the band fired off high tension noise — fast, distorted, dangerous. GG screamed a few inaudible lines, broke the mike, and let the band finish up the number while he dove onto tables, only to Follow The Wind - Bee Gees - Bee Gees savagely dragged down again.
I mean, you don't just crawl out of your basement, line up your first gig, and introduce the world to the GG Allin freakshow. It had to start somewhere. I started, of course, at the beginning. But the Jabbers were more than a bunch of troublemakers trashing clubs — there was some serious musicianship and networking going on here, with Cheetah Chrome, David Peel and Wayne Kramer and Dennis Thompson of the MC5 on the list of collaborators.
The Jabbers served as David Peel's backing band for dates in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, playing both their own set and then coming back out with Peel. At the Living Room in Providence, when GG first filled in for Cheetah Chrome's band on drums, Cheetah was so impressed with his playing that he asked him to join the band the offer was undoubtedly appreciated, but declined.
This portion of GG's life Pussy Trash - Deadly Fist - Sex Up probably the most stable and "normal" as it got: he was married to his high school sweetheart married Oct. So where did this cryptic alias come from? It's common knowledge now, thanks to the internet, but back then it was pretty shocking to find out that GG's birth certificate name was in reality Jesus Christ Allin.
From there on, the releases are well-documented and, in a way, less interesting. The first installment covers Bored To Death - GG Allin - Insult & Injury (Volume 1 - 1977 - 1982 Banned In Boston) Jabbers and pre-Jabbers years fromup until their last release as a functioning band.
Luckily for me in the lates, GG was considered little more than an embarrassment, a bad joke, to most punk shoppers and store clerks alike, so his original vinyl was still frequently available at reasonable or downright cheap prices in used shops in New England.
