GG Allin & The Scumfucs – Hard Candy Cock EP (7-inch)
Label: Blood 306015
Year: 1983
Tracks: Hard Candy Cock / Out For Blood / I Don’t Give A Shit // Drink, Fight And Fuck / Convulsions

GG may have still technically been with the Jabbers— their official final gig was not until April 8, 1984 —but in his head he had already conjured up the next stage in his career. The debut Scumfucs EP appeared in mid-1983 pretty much unbeknownst to the Jabbers (though drummer Mike O’Donnell played on the recording). A studio project, as the Scumfucs had never played live at this point, the recording marks the beginning of the lyrics and personality GG perfected in his mid-80s period. A fitting cruddy packaging job adds to the delivery – a black-and-white foldover sleeve hand glued to a white innersleeve on the back flap, while on the front of the white innersleeve is glued an updated version of the Jabbers insert from the “You Hate Me & I Hate You” single. Live photos on the front cover are reported to be from the Jabbers’ A7 Club gig in April 1983. For what it’s worth, “Out For Blood” started off as a Jabbers tune, as it was performed during their pre-A7 gig practice recording.
