03.15.13 – Templeton Elliott

Altamont has a collection of shirts featuring photos and drawings by G.G. Allin. Click through for a video and to learn more.

Born Jesus Christ Allin, G.G. Allin has been cited as “the most spectacular degenerate in rock & roll history.”

Famously depicted in Todd Phillips’ documentary “Hated,” G.G. Allin’s controversial transgressions as a musician and live performer are notorious. No artist before, or after, has come close to comparing.

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of G.G. Allin’s death in 1993, Merle Allin-brother and founding member of “The Murder Junkies,” allowed Altamont access to drawings G.G. made during his time in prison, as well as never-before-seen photographs. Merle chose his favorite images for a series of Altamont tees celebrating G.G. Allin’s extraordinary life.
