Murder Junkies-Road Killer
You can't write about the Murder Junkies without mentioning GG Allin. As his backing band they were the soundtrack to his notorious live act. A live act in which he would defecate and urinate onstage (not to mention rolling in it, eating it and throwing it like a crazed monkey at audience members) all the while fighting with fans male and female alike. Usually the set would be cut after a few short songs due to the violence and mayhem associated with his act. Following G.G.'s death in 1993 the Murder Junkies carried on (or limped along rather) playing as a tribute to G.G's legacy. On Road Killer "PP" Duvay (of Putnam County, New York-based punk band They Hate Us) takes over for the late G.G. on vocals. While nobody will ever take the place of G.G. his spirit lives on in Duvay. Anchored by the rhythm section of Merle Allin (G.G.'s brother) on bass and Dino Sex on drums Road Killer plays like a tribute album to G.G. It has the same sense of sarcastic and politically incorrect humor. It's obnoxious and borders on obscene. It's also a vile and disgusting piece of work. In other words it's downright fun to listen to. "Once A Whore", "Stab You 50Times" and "Piss' Drinkin' Jew" are not going to go over well with your uptight liberal friends. It's the words of the Dictator's coming to mind though-"Fuck Em If They Can't Take a Joke". This is punk rock. Good punk rock like you and I grew up on and a worthy tribute to disturbed life and times of G.G. Allin.
