F for Family Friendly

Having only witnessed the unholy spectacle that was Kevin Michael “GG” Allin through former underground ringleader/current fratpack auteur Todd Phillips’ brilliant documentary Hated, I experienced a distilled, somewhat removed glimpse into this shit-and-blood-smeared phenomenon. Well, now we can all take one more safe step back. Listener-supported radio station WFMU is kicking off their annual pledge drive this week and Tom Scharpling, host of The Best Show on WFMU, has put together a premium that puts tote bags and Ken Burns DVDs to shame… a vinyl 7″ entitled Rated GG. The record features indie artists Ted Leo, Fucked Up, Ty Segall, The Mountain Goats and Ben Gibbard performing cleaned-up versions of GG Allin “classics”, and it comes with a digital download, as well as other extras. Make an Insta-Pledge here.
