Perhaps GG’s defining moment and point of no return, the “Eat My Fuc” LP establishes the baseline for gutter-quality recording techniques, album design, and lyrical content. Unfortunately following in the footsteps of the “Always Was” LP, this album also only offers up five new tracks, with side one being the debut Scumfucs EP in its entirety. But side two is really where the fun begins. Fueled by daily intoxication and paralleling GG’s dropoff in personal hygiene and high flying of his sexual freak flag, the recording boasts some of the trashiest, mind bogglingly fucked up sounds to ever grace wax. “Fuckin’ The Dog” opens the side with one of his darkest, and dare I say, introspective, moments to date, and the wall-of-fuzz guitar soloing is simply awesome. Throughout the next four tracks, instruments drop out, tracks abruptly end, guitars blast out of only one speaker, odd hissing noises permeate… and the cuts wouldn’t be as good any other way. The tour de force ends with two live cuts from the Jabbers’ April 1983 gig at the A7 Club in New York City, with typical crowd harassment and a quick, upbeat dressing room interview. Initial copies of “Eat My Fuc” feature a white cardstock sleeve completely hand-drawn by GG, often with the song titles handwritten on the back. Includes the insert “Metallic Garage Punk for Savage People.” This may only hold true for copies sold at one Rhode Island store, but some versions exist of a Jabbers-era GG poster folded around the LP cover, hiding the obscene artwork and title, and taped to the back of the jacket. The next, more frequently seen version consists of a plain white innersleeve replacing the hard cardstock sleeve. A live shot of GG lying on the stage, giving the finger to the camera is pasted on the back, and no insert is included. It’s a good bet that yet another variant resulted from dried up markers and/or sore hand (from drawing, pervert): a photocopied version of GG’s hand-drawn artwork pasted on the front, with the same picture on the back of the sleeve.
