The Murder Junkies
The Murder Junkies were the last backing band of notorious punk rock performer GG Allin. After Allin's death, his brother and bassist Merle Allin, guitarist William Weber, and drummer Dino Sex decided to continue the band without GG. They recruited a new singer Mike Denied, and have released the album Feed My Sleaze. The band tours sporadically and has gone through several line up changes.
The most comtemporary singer has been J.B. Beverley, a musician from the Washington DC area who fronts two other bands, The Little White Pills and The Wayward Drifters. Jeff Clayton of Anti-seen has also toured with the Murder Junkies during some of the 1990's and during the 10th and 11th anniversary of GG's death.
From the late seventies throughout the eighties, a form of music was created with the sound and fury of a thousand blood-starved warriors ready to loot, rape and pillage for their cause! That form of music was called HEAVY METAL! For more than a decade, this proud sonic beast stood tall over all its pathetic competitors. Dance, rap and especially glam rock all bowed their heads when faced with the raging power of metal. But somewhere around the beginning of the nineties, The Beast became infected with a deadly disease, TRENDY FALSE METAL! The horrid sounds of grunge, industrial and funk dealt lethal blows to The Beast, while many of its followers betrayed the faith, stabbing metal in the back in order to get a ticket on the latest band wagon. The once proud Metal Beast lay broken, thought dead by those who had betrayed and plotted against it. But behold, there were those who knew the truth, saw the light and stood their ground in the face of overwhelming odds. Those who would nurse The Beast back to health and start it on its road to recovery and re-conquest! Those men are NASTY DISASTER!!!
