GI is the debut and only studio album by American punk rock band the Germs. Often considered the first hardcore punk album, it was released in the United States in October 1979 on Slash Records with catalog number SR 103. The album was later released in Italy in 1982 by Expanded Music with the catalog EX 11. The album's title is an acronym for Germs Incognito, an alternate name the band used to obtain bookings when their early reputation kept them out of Los Angeles-area clubs. The Germs - GI Full Album. Rafael Grossl. The Germs. Jon Savage Presents Black Hole - Californian Punk 1977-80. Язык: Русский. Страна: США. Released October 1979. GI Tracklist. What We Do Is Secret Lyrics. The only studio album by controversial and highly influential punk band the Germs, GI is often considered to be one of the first hardcore punk albums, if not the first. Produced by Joan Jett, the album was an eventual critical success and commercial failure, bringing still more notoriety and heaps more respect to the band then best known for their outrageous, unlistenable live shows. Within a year lead singer and songwriter Darby Crash would be dead, but the legacy of this album lived on through the 80s and beyond. Today, we revisit Germs GI, a touchstone of California punk. Trying to get the straight story of Los Angeles punk band Germs is like trying to piece together the timeline of a debaucherous night out: The specifics are blurry, the headache is blinding, and everybody has a different take on what happened. One lucid fact pierces through the hangover: Germs were a mess of contradictions. Doomed frontman Darby Crash was a well-read savant and a mumbling cretin, crowds adored and abhorred them, and the music they made in four belligerent years reached decades beyond their downfall.

A blast of self-lacerating L. punk in its original glory, GI is simply classic a commanding, rampaging sneer at everyone and everything infused with a particular, disturbed vision. Said vision belongs to Darby Crash, whose proclivities for charismatic manipulation were already well established before he fully spelled them out in lyrics like Lexicon Devil, here featuring in a re-recording, and Richie Dagger's Crime.

Released a year before frontman Darby Crash committed suicide, Gi finds producer Joan Jett valiantly capturing the energy of the bands legendarily unhinged live shows. Tracks like Lexicon Devil and We Must Bleed display the groups locked-in, unstoppable momentum, which laid the groundwork for Crashs violent, unholy vocal exorcisms. Band Name The Germs.
