The Germs - Germicide


On this date in 1981, a posthumous recording of a 1977 show at The Whiskey in Los Angeles was released under the title Germicide. It was a posthumous release. The Los Angeles punk band was fronted by Darby Crash, who committed suicide on December 7, 1980 of a planned drug overdose. That was the end of the band. They have re-formed to do shows recently with a new lineup.
