Album Title: Gacy's Place: The Undiscovered Corpses
Of all the hotly sought-after original Killed-By-Death punk singles, few to none are as notorious â€“ or mysterious â€“ as the Gacyâ€™s Place EP by THE MENTALLY ILL! The sleeve, the topics, the so-horrible-itâ€™s-amazing production values, that voice. Many in the know crown it the sickest punk record ever made. But there is more â€“ much more. The Gacyâ€™s Place sessions yielded eight songs, only three were ever released. A dig in the olâ€™ crawlspace turned up even cruder earlier demos with alternate versions of the EP songs, plus over half-a-dozen others, heard only by a handful of people. A true labor of man-boy love, it took JELLO BIAFRA years to pry this loose from the band. They kept insisting each album be housed in a 3-foot wide scale model of Gacyâ€™s house itself! Now their affliction has subsided enough so that everyone finally has a chance to save their $200 â€œevil-Bayâ€ bucks and grab a whole albumâ€™s worth of mental illness before their condition comes back. Another exciting chapter in Alternativeâ€™s â€˜Punk Re-Issues Of Necessityâ€™ series!
