In Sync

The Dark Side of Oz? Man, that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Eventually, his loathing manifested itself in this disc, called by some That G.G. Is Fucked -- TGIF, get it? -- because of its long-rumored association with ABC's end-of-the-week lineup. (Freaks, Faggots, Drunks & Junkies corresponds closely with the shows broadcast on Friday, January 15, 1988.) Coked-up and only marginally coherent (as ever), Allin didn't appear to have a concept album in him at the time. However, this last gasp of somewhat creative crudeness proves that he did. Unfortunately.

Key Sync Moments:

Toward the end of the episode of Perfect Strangers, while Balki Bartokomous and "Coosin" Larry Appleton engage in their oft-seen "Dance of Joy," Allin provides the pair with some dancin' music, the brutal "Suck My Ass It Smells." Jo Marie Payton-Noble (as Harriet Winslow, later to turn up on Family Matters) appears to mutter the title of the song as she turns away in disgust.

Later, during Growing Pains, as Jason and Maggie and the rest of the Seaver clan celebrate the birth of their fourth child, Krissy, Allin tears into a startlingly apropos two-fer, "Family" and "Young Little Meat." Song No. 2 begins immediately after Ben Seaver compares his newborn sister's appearance to "a big Vienna sausage." We'd guess Allin had something else in mind.
