cowboyz 'n' poodles (aka rock is dead)

Some former little buckaroo over at DFA tells me that Pixeltan is set to perform its first live show in 4 years this Friday at Rothko (although this is old news). With Kid 606 no less. Good show, folks.

And from Music Video Distributors in late March comes the GG Allin: Savage South – Best of 1992 Tour DVD. (I'm not suggesting that you go out and buy this, but I just tend to think that any piece of information including the words "GG Allin" is innately funny.)

(There's always going to be a 12-year old boy inside of me.)

The DVD material is culled from three shows in Febrary '92, including nights in Atlanta, San Antonio and Austin. There's apparently also an "ultra-rare previously unreleased GG Interview."

The cheesy but totally appropriate copy, provided by Merle Allin, GG's corny brother, runs as follows:
In February of 1992, GG Allin & the Murder Junkies would continue to pave a bloody path of destruction across the land. GG's shows were becoming more and more violent and confrontational. He started to describe his concerts as a war between him and his audience. His mind was a machine gun, his body the bullets and anyone in the way was the target.

Each night, GG would attack an already hostile crowd, creating a riot-like atmosphere. It was without a doubt the most dangerous yet thrilling experience I have ever encountered. Unfortunately, GG's reign of terror would end abruptly when he was arrested for disorderly conduct and endangering the lives of his audience. He was extradited back to Michigan to serve out the final years of his original prison sentence. The Savage South Tour will go down in history as one of the most violent tours ever. These shows have all of the intensity and insanity people have come to expect from a GG Allin performance… and more.
