Before dying of a heroin overdose in 1993 (see video above), GG Allin's final tour was supported by The Murder Junkies. The Murder Junkies were his last and best backing band. They featured his Hitler mustachioed brother Merle on bass, and the legendary Dino Sex on drums.
They will be performing tonight in Miami, folks. Drummer Dino will probably play naked. He loves the Lunachicks. Am I living in the past? There was a time in my life back in the early '90s, when my proudest achievement was having attended a GG Allin concert. I have been ashamed of this experience for a long time, click here to see why.
"I am the highest power," yelled GG. "Grow a fucking dick," yelled a woman in the audience. GG started smashing the microphone into his bloody forehead and continued singing, "Jesus Christ fuck me in the ass, your bible is a piece of trash..." He ran past me and for some reason I tried to tackle him.
I emailed GG's brother and Murder Junkie's bassist Merle the following two questions:
Anything you want to tell us about the show? Do you play "Bite it, You Scum," or any other classic GG songs?
"WELL MYSELF AND DINO ARE THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS. WE HAVE PP DUVAY FROM A BAND CALLED "THEY HATE US" AND FC MURDER FROM "REBEL PRIDE". FC WAS OUR SINGER BACK IN THE LATE 90'S.
"WE DO PLAY SOME GG CLASSICS AS WELL AS STUFF FROM "BRUTALITY & BLOODSHED FOR ALL", "FEED MY SLEAZE" & OTHER NEW SONGS WE HAVE NOT RECORDED YET. NO OUR SINGER ISN'T GOING TO SHIT ON ANYONE. ITS JUST A GREAT HIGH ENERGY SCUMFUC ROCK & ROLL SHOW."
Scumfuc Rock and Roll is what you will get at Churchill's tonight. Tickets are $12 at the door.
