The Murder Junkies
The Murder Junkies were the last backing band of notorious punk rock performer GG Allin. After Allin's death, his brother and bassist Merle Allin, guitarist William Weber, and drummer Dino Sex decided to continue the band without GG. They recruited a new singer Mike Denied, and have released the album Feed My Sleaze. The band tours sporadically and has gone through several line up changes.
The most comtemporary singer has been J.B. Beverley, a musician from the Washington DC area who fronts two other bands, The Little White Pills and The Wayward Drifters. Jeff Clayton of Anti-seen has also toured with the Murder Junkies during some of the 1990's and during the 10th and 11th anniversary of GG's death.
"The newest and best in a long line of Nutmeg State hardcore fury is Intercourse, a four-piece wrecking machine from New Haven apparently hell-bent on getting some of you arrested by giving you that final push off the proverbial ledge. This thing is a full-on prison riot. Take all forms of sonic hostility and shake vehemently until all ingredients are evenly dispersed and then maybe you have a ballpark idea of where this band is coming from."

"If you like either early Rollins era Black Flag or Mathcore you’ll like Intercourse." - (Tuffgnarl.com / Miami, Fla.)
"A disorientating piece of dementia bolstered by the barbed, angular guitars of Kevin King and the thoroughly maniacal, scream filled rants of vocalist Tarek Emad Ahmed. They bring smiles to the faces of reprobates who like the mathy, aggressive sounds."

"The music punches you in the gut from the first sound blasted at you so sharply and uncivilized like. 4 dudes from New Haven, CT who make a loud, hefty and drunk noise punk ruckus with a power hardcore tinge."

"Intercourse add their own stamp of originality without being incomprehensible or “too much”. I.e. they don’t sound like every other contemporary Hardcore band. A brutal slab of Hardcore Punk with lyrics to match. A visceral, abrasively corrosive blast of Hardcore."

"These dudes are gonna blow your head off."
-(RVA Magazine/Richmond, VA.)
"I love that they are willing to do different stuff musically, but its all tied to an anchor of belligerence. Just frothing at the mouth, white knuckled belligerence."
- (Razorcake / Los Angeles, CA.)
Intercourse have got modern punk right, they keep enough of the old format, mixing just the right touch of noise. They’re like the peace treaty the punk underground needs to all come together again. For a first release this is a leap into the bed of greatness.
