Editors’ Notes

Among the most distinctive voices in rock music, Jello Biafra is best known for his work with the politically minded subversive hardcore pioneers Dead Kennedys and for founding the long-running record label Alternative Tentacles. He released six albums with the DKs between 1980 and 1987 and followed that with nine spoken-word collections, plus five records with Lard (with Ministry's Al Jourgenson), and collaborations with everyone from The Melvins to D.O.A. and Mojo Nixon. The Guantanamo School of Medicine is his latest group, and this is its third release, following The Audacity of Hope and Enhanced Methods of Questioning. As is Biafra's usual M.O., he sounds off about shady politicians, religious absurdity, American hypocrisy, dirty Wall Street shenanigans, and assorted international debauchery, flexing his trademark warbly vocals over slashing guitars and frenetic drums. It's highly recommended for aging punk fans and government conspiracy theorists; check out "Crapture," "Shock-U-Py," and "Werewolves of Wall Street."

Customer Reviews

awesome

OMG This Album is Awesome . Great for DK fans!

Are any of the 1 star reviewers even over 35?

I am personally happy to hear new material from Jello Biafra. Yeah it sounds like Dead Kennedys, that's because it's Jello!! What were you expecting, Jello sounding like some cheesy jazz singer? For the other old punks on here will know what I mean about the jazz type singing! I love this new album. It's better than the current knock off DK that's touring.

Jello Keeps it Going

I'm not surprised at the love/hate 5 or 1 ratings split - there's been so much historically negative press around the whole DK thing, his attitude and perceived arrogance, etc - but I like Jello's records, the collaborations and different styles he's done with various artists comes out in this record - these guys are good musicians. But it's about personal preference - i can see why someone stumbling upon this would find it crappy. I have friends that will dig this, and friends I'd never bother playing it for. This isn't supposed to be super high fidelity, over-produced music. Bare bones is the style, its not a talent problem.

His music will always sound DKish in some ways because of his super distinctive voice. The title of the record might not have been the best choice - but you have to admit, love him or hate him, Jello seems to stick to his guns, at least on records - he's always had something to say and he's saying it, and claims not to be deterred by others commentary. Just take it for the music and don't take it personally.
