GG Allin – You Hate Me & I Hate You // Automatic / Assface (7-inch)
Label: Orange ORA-70
Year: 1982

It seems odd that the Jabbers’ standard live opener “You Hate Me & I Hate You” hadn’t been recorded for the LP — rather, it’d be released two years later, packaged with two of the best songs from “Always Was.” My only guess is that funding was low, so the studio time went towards the GG anthem, and he lifted “Automatic” and “Assface” to round out the ideal Public Animal No. 1 experience, so to speak. As with most of the singles, GG also played drums on the title cut. Perhaps growing aggravated by the near-irrelevant status the band was becoming relegated to behind GG, members of the Jabbers placed “and the Jabbers” stickers below GG’s name on the covers of some copies. Most copies of this EP came with a standard insert, the one that would also end up (looking like a 10th generation copy) glued into the first Scumfucs EP. The UK label Catch-22 released the “Public Animal No. 1” three-songer on cassette with slightly modified artwork. I know of only one copy of this, and sadly it’s not in my clutches.
