GG Allin Works The Room... (1989)

A GG Allin spoken word show, recorded in Boston c.1989. Despite his fearsome reputation, he actually strikes quite a pathetic figure throughout this performance (& it definitely is a "performance"), taking his anger out on property for the most part & visibly flinching at the prospect of genuine, physical violence. It doesn't look like he'd downed his customary laxatives prior to taking the stage on this occasion either, for which I'm rather thankful - I guess he didn't feel the assembled hipster throng was worth the trouble? As the man himself quoth" "With G.G. you don't get what you expect - you get what you deserve." Having said that, he was imprisoned for "rape & torture of a female aquaintence" later this year, so they evidently got off quite lightly...
