  • Merle Colby Allin, Jr. is an American electric bass guitar player. He is the older brother of the late punk rock singer/songwriter/performance artist GG Allin. Allin played bass for three main groups that featured GG Allin: Malpractice, The AIDS Brigade and The Murder Junkies. He currently continues the Murder Junkies, his brother's last backing band, with original drummer Donald Sachs, and a varying line-up of younger members. Merle is featured extensively in the documentary film Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies, by future Road Trip and Hangover director Todd Phillips. He is also a principal in the as yet unreleased documentary Living the American Nightmare. Allin was also bass player in late 70's Boston punk group Thrills, who released several singles, and opened for acts such as David Johansen, the Cars, and the Ramones. He subsequently joined the band Cheater Slicks, and played bass guitar on their debut album, "On Your Knees." Allin's trademark is his overgrown toothbrush moustache. On April Fools 2014, New York record label Godmode released a 15 minute prank phone call with Merle as the victim.
