New Import - PLATE061LP
Sealed 2021 Reissue From UK Indie Label Audio Platter. Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. "Released After A Three-year Studio Hiatus, This Album Picks Up Right Where Plastic Surgery Disasters Left Off. As Always, The Lyrics Are Among The Most Literate And Angry In All Of Rock & Roll. "Goons Of Hazard" Scores The Culture Of Guns And The Rednecks Who Love Them, Utilizing Full-Textured Hard Rock To Set The Verses. "Soup Is Good Food" Lacerates The Concept Of Disposable People In Disposable Jobs, Pairing This Idea With Repeated Guitar Riff-Based Music That Suggests A Nightmare Version Of 1960s Songs. "Jock-O-Rama" Excoriates Organized Sports And Macho Attitudes; Musically, The Outer Sections Wed Rockabilly And Hardcore Influences, Sandwiching A Slow Middle Section That Spoofs Martial Numbers Like Barry Sadler's "Ballad Of The Green Berets." "This Could Be Anywhere" Has Critical Lyrics About Racism And Classicism Set To Music Highly Reminiscent Of The Sex Pistols. "Hellnation" Has Garbled, Wide-Range, Muckracking Verses Set To Stun-Speed Punk That Recalls Numbers From In God We Trust Inc. The Excellent "MTV -- Get Off The Air" Lambastes The Corporate Influences On Rock & Roll; Musically, The Song Exhibits A Tripartite Structure, Using A Vacuously Poppy Opening, A Speed Hardcore Central Section, And A Mid-Tempo Rocking Finale That Prominently Features Trumpet (A Very Brief Coda Reprise Of Hardcore Ends The Number). The Finest Selection On This Album (And Perhaps In The Whole Dead Kennedys' Canon) Is The Anthemic "Stars And Stripes Of Corruption." This Number Also Utilizes A Three-part Construct, Consisting Here Of A Hard-Rocking Midsection Flanked By Faster, Punk-Oriented Material. The Verses Here Are Stunningly Detailed, Describing What The Band Believes Is Wrong With The United States And What The Solutions Should Be. This Wonderful And Challenging Album Is Very Highly Recommended." AMG Review By David Cleary. more

1980 Pressing. LP Appears Unplayed. Includes Bonus Track. more
Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables
Used - LP - B Red 10
1980 UK First Pressing With Giant, Two-Sided Black & White Poster. NM/NM. “A Hyper-Speed Blast Of Ultra-Polemical, Left-Wing Hardcore Punk, And Bitingly Funny Sarcasm, Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables Stands As The Dead Kennedys' Signature Statement. As One Of The First Hardcore Albums, It Was A Galvanizing Influence On The Musical And Attitudinal Development Of The Genre, Also Helping To Kickstart The Fertile California Scene. The Record's Tactics Are Not Subtle In The Least; Jello Biafra's Odd Warble And Spat-Out Lyrics Leave No Doubt As To What He Thinks, Baiting His Targets Of Conservatism, Violence, Overbearing Authority, And Capitalist Greed With A Viciously Satirical Sarcasm That Keeps His Unflinchingly Political Outlook From Becoming Too Didactic. The Thin Production Dilutes Some Of The Music's Power, But The Ragged Speed-Blur Still Packs A Wallop, And The Hooks Cribbed From Surf And Rockabilly Give It A Gonzo Edge. The Songwriting Isn't Consistent All The Way Through The Album, But Classics Like "Kill The Poor," "Let's Lynch The Landlord," "Chemical Warfare," "California Über Alles," And "Holiday In Cambodia" Helped Define The Hardcore Genre And, Thus, Must Be Heard.” Steve Huey, AMG. more

Give Me Convenience Or Give Me Death
Used - LP - VIRUS 57
Clean 1987 Original With 24 Page "Domestic Violence Week" Illustrated Booklet And Bonus 7" Flexi Single Plus A "No More Censorship" Flyer. LP Appears Unplayed As Well As The Flexi Single. "Hounded By Political Enemies And Reaching Their Personal Breaking Point, The Kennedys Bowed With A Retrospective Of Some Of Their Fiercest, Finest Moments. If One Needs A Starting Point For The Band's Fierce, Funny Assault On Any Level Of Complacency Imaginable, Give Me Convenience Is Indeed As Convenient As It Gets. Focusing For The Most Part On Non-Album Cuts Or Various Rarities, It Appeals To Hardcore Dead Kennedys Fans As Well As Neophytes. The Collection Includes Some Of The Band's Earliest Greats, Like The Legendary Rant "Too Drunk To Fuck," As Withering A Depiction Of Getting Trashed And Stupid As Any. While The Definitive "California Über Alles" And "Holiday In Cambodia" Make The Cut From The First Album, There Are Also Plenty Of More Obscure And Unknown Goodies. The Second Half Features Live Tracks Like The Hilarious "Pull My Strings," Which Vivisects Typical Rock Star Pomposity (Knowingly Quoting The Knack's "My Sharona") Before Shifting Into An Even Nuttier Chorus. Another Screamingly Funny Number Is The Improv "Night Of The Living Rednecks," Done "While Ray Was Changing Strings" At An Oregon Date In 1979. After Threatening To Play The Theme From The Dinah Shore Show, The Remaining Three Members Light Into Something Resembling A Beat/'50S Hep Groove, Only With Biafra Recalling A Tale Of Idiots Encountered During A Previous Visit To Portland. Meanwhile, There's A Version Of "I Fought The Law," Which Easily Trumps The Clash's Version, Helped By A Lyric Change Or Two Along The Way. Messy, Nutty, And Fun, Convenience Is A Treat And A Half." Ned Raggett, AMG. more
