Despite all the self-hype of being a destructive madman and public animal throughout his career up to this point, GG never even left his hallmark, um, deposit, on a stage until July 1985 in Peoria, Ill., at the kickoff of his Hated In The Nation tour with Peoria’s Bloody F. Mess. It was a planned event — he ate an entire bar of Ex-Lax a couple of hours before the show — while sharing the bill with straight-edge bands. (I’m sure this was not so much accident as it was a ploy to add even more antagonistic feelings between the audience and the performer.) At this point, GG didn’t have a touring band; he’d simply take a bus to the next stop and hook up with people in that particular city. And when no band was available, he performed solo with a backing tape. The Texas Nazis was a one-off gig captured on tape at the Twilight Room in Dallas, Texas. Surprisingly, the band got through the entire set, diarrhea and all, without being shut down or thrown out (judging by the quietness of the crowd, it was a sparsely attended gig). The sound quality is excellent for a GG show, although you’re not really listening to this for the music: the between-song banter is the raison d’etre here. In fact, the ramblings are so perfect that Mykel Board liberally used portions to sprinkle between songs on ROIR’s “Hated In The Nation” compilation cassette. The first edition of the cassette has no mention of Blood Records, and the liner notes are hand-written by GG. The second edition sports the Blood Records label name and typed liner notes (which are different from the previous version). None of the tapes I’ve owned were professionally manufactured; for as “popular” a release as this was, apparently Geege spent a lot of time dubbing tapes on his dual-cassette deck. Side two of the cassettes I own contain dubs of all of the Scumfucs vinyl releases.
