This album was GG's first full length recorded effort. However, it is very different from what one would expect from this antisocial hooligan. Obviously in his formative years, GG has a surpisingly tunefully snotty punk voice, and the music recalls bands like the Stooges, the Dead Boys, the New York Dolls, and even a bit of 70's hard rock. The talent on this album is great, and the songs almost have a poppy resonance. Songs like "Don't Talk to Me" could fit on the radio in between "My Sharona" and "Blitzkrieg bop". But it equally ferocious and raw, which creates a perfect balance that is infectious.
The rhythm section is tight and punchy (and reportedly GG played some of the drums). GG Allin and the Jabbers make a pure masterpiece of early eighties punk rock, and this underappreciated gem should be picked up by anyone who likes the genre. There is a glimpse of the dementia to come in songs like "Beat Beat Beat" and "Automatic", but GG does it in a way that makes it tuneful like the Misfits. A solid addition to every true punk rock collection!!!
