Germs - GI 12 inch
Out of Stock
(GI) is the only studio album from American punk band The Germs. The title stands for "Germs Incognito", an alternate name the band used to obtain bookings when their early reputation kept them out of Los Angeles-area clubs. Often cited as the one of the first full-length hardcore punk LPs, it was released in 1979 by Slash Records in the United States as SR-103 and later in 1982 by EXPANDEDMUSIC in Italy as EX-11. After (GI)'s release, the band would only undertake one more recording session, for the soundtrack album to the Al Pacino movie Cruising. A year after (GI)'s release, lead singer Darby Crash committed suicide on December 7, 1980.
