My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?

24 years after his death, punk rocker Kevin "GG" Allin is still an international cult figure. Fronting bands such as The Murder Junkies and The Texas Nazis, Allin became notorious for his unpredictable and aggressive stage performances in which he'd just as well fling faeces at the crowd as punch female audience members in the face. In the revealing and highly entertaining documentary THE ALLINS we see how his mother Arleta and his brother Merle live with a legacy which many would deem disgraceful.
