5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling Throughout
More 5-star common sense from Biafra,exposing the hypocrisy of all those we know and love with pinpoint accuracy,as usual.If only there were more people in the world like him.
No details,just buy it and support a vital artist who explains the issues intelligently,with no little humour and not in a condescending or hectoring manner.

1.0 out of 5 stars Childish politics in this clown's brain
This album should be listened to by everyone who wants to know what it would be like if Noam Chomsky suffered a head injury and then decided to take up spoken word. If Michael Moore is Chomsky for children then this is Chomsky for babies. All of this far-left bilge is familar to anyone who has read their Chomsky, Moore, Fisk, Pilger etc. As for the claims that this guy...

This review is from: Machine Gun In Clown's Head (Audio CD)
This album should be listened to by everyone who wants to know what it would be like if Noam Chomsky suffered a head injury and then decided to take up spoken word. If Michael Moore is Chomsky for children then this is Chomsky for babies. All of this far-left bilge is familar to anyone who has read their Chomsky, Moore, Fisk, Pilger etc. As for the claims that this guy is funny it is clearly a matter of personal taste but his attempts at humour such as calling Dick Cheney 'Dick the Dick Cheney' and George Bush 'Cowboy Cornholio' are unlikely to draw a laugh from anyone but his most devoted followers. Biafra at times stumbles upon genuine insights such as the fact that we face terrorism from certain Arab groups but not from African or South American groups which may suggest that terrorism is not the result of poverty or foreign policy, but, alas, Biafra reverts to the politically correct view that America is the reason for Islamic terrorism and the the poor middle class highly educated terrorists who carried out 911 and 7/7 etc had 'nothing left to lose'. He also accuses Bush of ignorance for not knowing that Wales is a seperate country from England and then imitates Charlotte Church (who speaks with a strong South Wales accent) in a posh upper-class English voice. The cover should not go without relection either. Bin Laden as Ronald McDonald? What does this even mean? It seems that Bin Laden is as hostile to the type of capitalism that Ronald represents as Biafra is. Big Macs seem to inspire the same kind of hatred in both the modern left and their allies in the anti-West Islamic world. I conclude that we should all be very relieved that Mr Biafra's revolution is never gonna happen (due no doubt to the corporate medias iron grip on the the minds of the vast majority of the American sheeple, sorry people) and that he will forever be spouting his nonsense to small audiences of punks, losers and alcoholics.
