Murder Junkies @ Jimmy's Place Allentown PA 10/21/11

The Murder Junkies killed it at Jimmy's Place in Allentown PA on October 21, 2011. Touring in support of their new LP "Road Killer" on MVD Audio, the band came out and riled up the crowd with their deviant and obnoxious brand of punk rock. 



Kicking things off with the song "Once A Whore" which is also the first song off of the new LP, they won over even the most jaded of punk rockers. Anyone who has known a whore immediately started singing along to the addictive chorus. This song is reason enough to seek out the vinyl or cd or digital download of "Road Killer". Vocalist PP Duvay had the crowd singing along, mimicking his guttural vocals, "Once a whore always a whore, I want to hurt you, I want to kill you".

Dino gave fair warning before stripping completely down to his birthday suit, to climb on Pete Nostalgia Crisis' drum kit to keep the manic beat. Luckily, I was otherwise occupied during the post Murder Junkies set of Dino's solo act/exhibition. After the set was complete, Dino did a drum solo and then made a pair of drumsticks meet their unfortunate demise. After the disappearing act, the drumsticks ended up in the parking lot in the back of the club, where hopefully no one picked them up for a souvenir.

GG Allin's legendary brother Merle kept all entertained with his bass playing and mere presence throughout the night. He was amazed that there were people in the crowd (namely Up To No Good Radio DJ Johnny Generic) older than he!

Guitarist Francis Anthony Superstar, who I have been friends with for decades, who now goes by Sonny Joe Harlan, killed on guitar. I witnessed local legend Larry gushing over how great a guitarist he was. I let Francis know Larry was in YouthQuake, as Francis, err Sonny Joe is well versed in Lehigh Valley punk rock. Francis gushed back as I knew he was a fan of the legendary Lehigh Valley band YouthQuake!

The Murder Junkies gave their fans all the time they wanted, posing for photos and signing autographs. This was one of the best punk rock shows I can remember coming to the Lehigh Valley in a very long time! Thanks to all who showed up and had a very up to no good evening!
