Music has it's extremes. One the one hand it has Taylor Swift constructed niceness and pastel colours and then there's the dark underbelly of pain. It's been almost twenty-five years since he died, but he is still one of the most hated and villified "punk stars" of all time, he makes Marilyn Manson and Ozzie Osborne look like choir boys. Sid Vicious is a sweetheart compared to this man. His performances usually involved guzzling laxatives, stripping naked,excreting on stage, throwing his poo at audience members and then beating them up. It's a kind of performance art I suppose. Noteworthy in that he went one further than his idols, like Iggy Pop, rather than actually being musical, he's gone down in history as a crazy act. Jesus Christ Allin, as he was born in '56, had a very troubled upbringing.
