How Many ILM Posters Ever Saw GG Allin Live?

I was watching the movie Hated last night, and this question occurred to me because I only rented the thing to see if I was in it.

I saw GG at a tiny, crappy bar-back-room called Space At Chase back in 1991, and that show was filmed for the beginning of the documentary. I remember seeing cameras wrapped in plastic, and cameramen wearing yellow rain slickers, and thinking "Oh, this bodes well."

The show only lasted about 10 minutes before the cops came; as we all fled the room, trying to avoid getting GG's feces on us, the bartender laughed at us and shouted, "What are you running for? Isn't this what you wanted? Get back in there and party with him!"

So...anybody else ever attend a GG Allin show?

I had the opportunity to, and I declined.....like a pussy. A friend of mine went to the fabled Gas Station show (his last).

The Space at Chase is still there....called something quite different now.

I invited my now-wife to the show I attended, and she, too, passed on her golden (like the shower) opportunity. Every couple of years, she asks me, "What the hell made you think I'd want to go see GG Allin?"

Never saw him live but I managed a college radio station in Michigan that was knocked off the air by the school's administration after we aired a live interview with GG from Adrian Prison. I got on the local news and everything. Yep- 19 year-old kid attempting to defend this broadcast on channel 7 action news. Mr. news reporter said that the broadcast was "repleat with language that would embarass even the toughest sailor". It was hilarious.

Favorite moment in Hated: Todd the Director is interviewing Unk (of the band, Pig Pen) about his memories of GG, and Unk describes inviting some girl over to a barbecue where GG was going to be for the purposes of peeing in his mouth. Unk stops himself, saying "Ooh, I mentioned her name, you can edit that out, right?" Todd says "Yes,"....BUT LEAVES IT IN! Har.

In the early 90's GG used to corrispond with a friend of mine and would send him some nasty videos. He kept asking if someone would set up a show for him. Everyone thought it would be cool to see him live, but nobody wanted to have him stay at their place.

Best bit from that review linked above:

As amazing as this documentary is, even more memorable is the "50 minutes of bonus footage" on the dvd. This is a home video Phillips made of GG's last performance. Right after this video, GG had a drug binge and overdosed and died and then they put headphones on his bloated body and had a traditional funeral for him but the drummer was still naked when he helped carry the coffin.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Thursday, 20 January 2005 03:30 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Watching that bonus footage disc is a true endurance test, shaky cam and all. The naked drummer is the best part of Hated. When I first saw that film it was playing as a double feature with Chicken Hawk, a documentary on N4MBL4!

I saw the Geeg with Squirrel Bait and Volcano Suns in 1986 at the Exit in Chicago. I interviewed SB for Non-Stop Banter before the show, and had to stand outside the locked club with GG and his protegee Bloody F. Mess (from Peoria) for about 15-30 minutes during the afternoon. GG apparently had had all his shit stolen earlier in the "tour," so he was carrying all his clothes in a ratty paper bag. He also had a rubber dildo (dirty) in the bag, and he proceeded to pull it out and offer it to various women on Wells Street.

His set was supposed to be backed by both Squirrel Bait and Volcano Suns guys, but his behavior during the soundcheck pretty much nixed that idea. I believe he took a shit during the soundcheck, so the club had him on a short leash. He ended up breaking his mic during his set, and the club pulled the plug before he could do too much more damage.

I watched the movie again with my wife last night, and I can be seen, very briefly, two or three times during the Space at Chase footage: once when they pan the crowd, and once walking out the door immediately after the show, and possibly one more time when GG is running around inside performing. I have no memory of owning the hat I'm wearing, but my wife says she remembers it.

so I have a queston...

did the dude like eat bran muffins all day or something? I mean who shits THAT MUCH? Every story I read about him involves shit. I knew it was a part of his performance, but he managed to sound check it too?!?

I never saw him and narrowly missed a bad experience. He played a club where I had been sound guy about a month after I quit. Part of the job involved putting away the mics at the end of the night, and in this case, the vocal mic had evidently been in his ass by that point. Ew. I also wouldn't want to the singer for the band playing there the following night.

"Wait, the guy who directed that film is the same guy who directed Harold and Kumar?
-- Ned Raggett (ne...), January 20th, 2005 6:07 PM."

No, but he did "Road Trip" and "Old School." Todd Phillips - he also did a documentary on frat guys that was supposed to be great but went unaired after HBO buried it when they learned that Phillips crossed some "ethical lines" during a hazing ceremony. I have always meant to look for a bootleg of that film. Anyway, yeah, I guess he's an old punk rocker.
He was recently in the trades for clashing with Sascha Baron Cohen and getting booted as the director of the "Borat" movie.

Oh, the mic-in-the-ass reminds me of the part in "Hated" where he gets brought in to NYU by some eager students on the program board. His entire appearance consists of him walking out naked and shoving a banana up his asshole. People run screaming; end of "speaking engagement." Genius.

I've not seen Hated and was a little young to have been able to see him live, but my favorite GG story comes from an interview I read in the early 90s (I believe it was in Alternative Press). The interviewer and GG were having a seemingly (atypical?) intelligent and well-mannered exchange about GG's craft during which he, without warning or provocation, got up from his barstool, urinated on it, and sat back down on it, continuing the conversation as if nothing had happened.

Well, if memory serves, the snapshot that they cut to depicts one of GG's fans smiling into the camera and giving a thumbs up while performing fellatio on GG, who is passed out cold. Under utterly deadpan narration about his "loyal fans."

I'm still confused. Given GG Allin's polymorphous perversity, isn't that just par for the course?

Levels of devotion (low to high):

- buying tour t-shirt at gig
- searching high & low for 7" and imports and promo materials
- attending 3 or more shows during the same tour in different states
- cyberstalking forums, blogs, etc. whenever your favorite artist is discussed in an unflattering manner
- sucking off said artist when the artist is conscious
- sucking off said artist when the artist is passed out

Devotion? Absolutely. Ridiculousness? Um, we ARE talking about GG Allin here, correct?

Kevin John Bozelka, Friday, 25 April 2008 18:03 (ten years ago) Permalink

I think the guy that's got the dick in his mouth is the "riduculous" part of the equation, but keep on posting about this, because someone's sure to agree with you eventually.

David R., Friday, 25 April 2008 18:07 (ten years ago) Permalink

Well, the reason I "keep on posting about this" is because when I saw a preview screening of Hated (with Phillips in attendance) the ONLY shot that elicited genuine shock from the markedly "avant" audience was that one. They greeted everything else with yuks and ews. But that show generated a lower toned "ohhhhhh" like a bunch of blue-haired biddies with their sense of propriety rocked.

So don't kid yourself that it had anything to do with Allin being passed out. They were appalled because they were seeing a man with a dick in his mouth. A crack whore pissing in Allin's mouth while he barfs up hot dogs? That's good times. But m2m fellatio? This will not stand!

And I suspect the same thing is happening here.

But gee, sorry to take up your precious time with it.

the dude w/ dick in mouth was no big deal, honestly. i'm surprised they didn't try to get a little more clarity on gg's ambiguous sexuality but i guess maybe counter to the film's "philosophy" and maybe he just couldn't get anything good out of gg on the subject?

also the people in the hometown were pretty hilarious. the "high school buddy" who shows up for an interview in a motorcycle jacket and aviators. the guitarist who dropped out of gg's band and comes across like a total moron. and some of them were downright scary, like the creepy high school teacher and the naked drummer.

I saw him in Chicago at Club Exit on Wells St. w/Squirrelbait and Volcano Suns. It must have been 1986. He didn't have a band with him, he just "sang" along with some taped music as accompaniment. He was first up in the line-up and was pretty bad. He shoved his mike up his butt.

I missed the GG/Squirrel Bait/Volcano Suns show too, but I remember seeing the flyers lying by the front door at Wax Trax. Saw him perform a few years later in a small room upstairs at Medusa's. He had pissed on himself so much that his attempts to light his pubic hair on fire were doomed to failure.

Also, not a GG concert, but I think it counts: saw him sitting in the audience in the balcony at Cabaret Metro as part of a club full of people who paid to watch a bunch of classic rock and punk video footage, hosted by the Psychotronic guy. There was some Stooges footage (as I recall it was a segue from footage of Chuck Berry doing the song that "1970" copped a verse from), and as soon as Iggy hit the screen GG leaped out of his chair, screaming "Yeah!" in a paroxysm of joy and idol worship. In a lot of ways that was better than seeing GG perform.

G.G. ELVIS AND THE T.C.P. BAND TO RELEASE DEBUT "BACK FROM THE DEAD" THROUGH MENTAL RECORDS ON JUNE 24
Several punk veterans collaborate to form extreme Punk Rock Elvis tribute.
Mental Records is pleased to announce the release of G.G. Elvis and the T.C.P. Band “Back From The Dead” for worldwide distribution on June 24, 2008. This utterly insane group of comedic mutha’ f*ckers manically combines the very best (and worst) of the “King of Rock” Elvis Presley and self-professed “King of Punk” G.G. Allin into a smash up punk rock Elvis tribute the likes of which the world has never seen. We’re talkin’ tight comedy-fused high-intensity music, masterfully mixed with well-known punk rock cover songs of Elvis classics. So in other words… PARTY!
Hailing from Oxnard, California (Ventura County just north of L.A.) the band features some of the “Nardcore” nest including members of NOFX, Agression, Bad Samaritans, Ill Repute, Stalag 13 & Dr. Know.
Formed in the summer 2006 by punk rock guitarist and Elvis Presley aficionado Tony Cortez (Ill Repute) and the dynamic lead guitarist and punk luminary Dave Cassillas (NOFX, Stalag 13 & Agression), G.G. Elvis and the T.C.P. Band actually began as the musical combo “Punk Rawk Elvis”. After several lineup changes, and some soul searching, Cortez enlisted the services of lead vocalist Eric Lara (Bad Samaritans), legendary punk beat-master Larry White (Agression, Stalag 13 & Dr. Know), bass-man George “Horhay” Snow (Bad Samaritans and Jughead’s Revenge), back up singer “Little Sister” Sara Jo Merin, and the formation of the T.C.P. (Taking Care of Punk) Band was complete.
After only three hasty rehearsals, G.G. Elvis and the T.C.P. Band made their live debut in Las Vegas at the infamous BYO Records sponsored Punk Rock Bowling Tournament, and the overly enthusiastic crowd was all shook the f*ck up! Since that fateful day, the band has played many-a-packed house and there ain’t no turnin’ back.
“Back From The Dead”, their debut, limited edition scratch n’ sniff release, was recorded at 60 Psycho Hum Recording Studios in Medford, Oregon and was produced by Mental Records co-owner, Doug Hill. It includes the controversial never-before-seen DVD exposé with shocking videos, rare interviews, photos, extras and special features. This explosive, gut-wrenching blend of outrageously tight punk infused Elvis classics will leave many a man balled up on the bathroom floor, hysterically choking on his own vomit and begging for more. Viva la G.G. Elvis!

Personas and Personnel:
G.G. Elvis aka Eric Lara – lead vocals (Bad Samaritans)
Elvis of Nazareth aka Tony Cortez – guitar (Ill Repute)
“Has-Been” Elvis aka Larry White – drums (Agression / Stalag 13)
Elvis Vicious aka Dave Casillas – lead guitar (NOFX / Stalag 13)
Elvis ’56 aka George “Horhay” Snow – bass (Bad Samaritans / Jughead’s Revenge)
Little Sister aka Sara Jo Merin - backing vocals

two years pass...

I saw G.G numerous times and talked to him on phone quite abit...I was in Volcano Suns and he opened for us in chicago...he was awful of course...during soundcheck some girl was in the bathroom and he kicked the stall door open and yelled let me eat your tampon...he had heard we did drink fight and fuck so he and some buddy who were traveling together (they had bought greyhound bus passes to go wherever they wanted on tour) were standing at the foot of the stage as we went thru our set...G.G kept yelling drink fight and fuck...wanting to hop up on stage with us and sing...the more he yelled, the less we wanted to do the song of course...just to annoy the guy...so about half way thru the set he and his bro started chanting "Pussies"...all in all a great night and G.G. was very easy guy to wind up which we always enjoyed doing when there was an asshole around...

A few years later I set up a show in Boston where I and two of my friends were his backing band..."Vanilla Douche"...it took alot of smooth talking to even get the club to let us play...I remember being on the phone with him and telling him it was gonna be "G.G Allin and Vanilla Douche"...after a long pause he said "my god, that is a killer name"...he kept asking to come over to my house to rehearse and as my girlfriend at the time would not let him step into the house I gave him the setlist and told him to show up at soundcheck and we would just run thru it and it would be fine...all the songs took about 30 secs apeice to learn anyhow and as I had seen him perform along with a cassette tape, I figured we would be fine...in alot of odd ways he was a total pussycat and an easy guy to strongarm and push around...unfortunately, when we showed up for soundcheck, G.G. had gotten there a half hour before us and proceeded to break a bunch of chairs and then shit on the floor...this with only a bartender or two there...they cancelled the show and threw him out...never saw or heard from G.G. again.

the 69 Eyes have covered "Gimme Some Head,"

this is one of the saddest songs in history, by the way - there's a poignancy to it because it predates GG actually figuring out what's shocking - it sounds like it was written by a guy who's really never done much but suspects there's a whole really transgressive world out there, but the most transgressive thing he can really think of is some head. Hey ,now , girls, I want lip-service/I don't wear a uniform and I'm not in the service/I've been in all day never seein' the sun/but when the sun goes down to the night I come/girls ,girls ,girls ,girls/gimme ,gimme ,gimme some head/I like the nasty things that you do to me in bed. Yes, GG. The incredibly nasty things as for example this really common sex practice that everybody does. I am excited to hear that you don't leave the house til after the sun goes down though! Incredible! Do the authorities know about this?

Really, that this song begins "Hey now, girls," is the sort of thing that, on the wrong day on a big enough sleep deficit, will make me cry for several hours

It's the underlying subtext to "Man in a Shed" by Nick Drake.

CKY has covered "Bite it You Scum"

misread that as CSNY for a second there

say what you want about GG musically, but "gimme some head" is one damn catchy tune

all the early stuff I've heard with the Jabbers is great. some of my favourite punk tunes.

gnarly sceptre, Friday, 30 April 2010 15:43 (eight years ago) Permalink

also, even the pre-Jabbers material. are Love Tunnel, Lover's Triangle and 1980's Rock n Roll pre-Jabbers? those tracks are almost unrecognisable from later stuff.

Anyone know where we can find dave q's awesome post about that SF show, referenced way up top? I remember being very entertained by that, I think it was on another thread.

As a followup local postscript...he is buried over in Littleton N.H. right on Vermont border...I think that is the name of the town tho I could be wrong...one of the little local papers runs a story every six months or so about "fans" of his doing odd things at his grave...leaving odd shit around, bothering the other graves ect ect...

personally, I never minded the guy...I just thought he was most likely a schizophrenic...common enough problem really...

all goes to shit lol see what I did there

Yes I did see, Colonel Poo...

Check this, in fact. How exciting. He literally cuts the mustard. (snoball), Saturday, 1 May 2010 19:09 (eight years ago) Permalink

If GG had been a computer programmer, it would have been bytes of shit.

Seriously one of the best punk songs ever, if you ask me.

seven months pass...

I attended, purely to see what was there. It was memorable! Certainly it wasn't for everyone.

Inspired by this thread, just watched "Hated." His pee-pee was tiny.

I mean, I've seen newborns with bigger pee-pees. I think this may have been the source of G.G.'s rage.

i've heard it was because of cocaine use.

Tell that to John Holmes.
All the piss, shit and blood in Hated and everyone just remembers GG's mini-dick. What a legacy.

also there seem to be stories about him cutting off the tip, though I'm sure you'd be able to tell from pics whether that is true.

another thing: if he was so pissed about that, why would he make sure everyone knew about it?

I'm joking, kids.

I thought it was a good doc but the director's comment at the end, something along the lines, "I'd hoped GG Allin would have died in a more spectacular fashion, on stage suicide taking five fans with him, instead he died like a typical rock star" was enraging. What a FUCKING STUPID thing to say. Yeah, it would have been so much better if he'd taken five people with him. What a load.

tbf he did specify "GG Allin fans"

The 50-minute bonus footage was incredible, especially the very clean cut guy in a sort of raincoat who kept following GG around and sticking his fingers up GG's shitty asshole.
