GG Allin’s prison diaries are getting released in a format GG would have probably fucking hated


GG Allin, My Prison Walls

During his 1989-1991 stint in prison for keeping a female fan chained up in his bedroom and torturing her for several days, rock’s greatest scumfuck GG Allin kept a journal that, amazingly, has never before been published in full. But now Aggronautix, the company that brought you the GG Allin bobblehead, is finally making Allin’s “30 Days in the Hole” available in print, along with a bunch of his prison drawings and letters he traded with fellow psychopaths like John Wayne Gacy. Just in time for beach reading season!

Weighing in at 208 pages, My Prison Walls comes not, as you might expect, printed on toilet paper and wrapped in a shit-stained hazmat bag. No, this baby is a luscious-looking, limited-edition hardcover book, “wrapped in black saifu cloth and decorated/titled in red foil blood stamping.” I’m not even sure what any of that means, but I’m pretty sure I just heard GG vomit in his grave.

Black saifu cloth aside, this is still the Geege we’re talking about, so the book’s contents are not exactly what you’d call your classic coffee table book fodder. You can read a bunch of excerpts over on Vice.com, which reveal that Allin apparently spent most of his time in the clink jerking off, comparing himself to Jesus Christ, and trying to figure out ways to record vocals by telephone for the next Murder Junkies record. He didn’t use the time to read Thoreau and Emerson and contemplate the error of his ways. Hell, the first thing he did after he got out was skip bail to go back on tour.

My Prison Walls is due out in August but you can pre-order it now for the low, low price of $49.95. Yeah, GG would have probably hated the whole thing except the part where you shell out fifty bucks for the privilege of reading about how he got a scab on his dick from wacking it too many times. That part he would have fucking loved.
