Product Description

This time, the root of Biafra's frustration-- aside from the threat of global terrorism, the Bush administration's response to the threat of global terrorism, and, uh, yuppies in Cadillacs-- is personal: The Melvins approached him about a possible collaboration after witnessing the supposed Dead Kennedys "reunion," which-- after a series of inter-band legal disputes-- occurred without Biafra at the helm. The Melvins are ideal musical foils to Biafra's maniacal persona, and show an admirable willingness to subdue and camouflage their normally obtrusive sound. The band members' great admiration and respect for Biafra's work are evident in the album's malleable arrangements, which strike a perfect balance between the Melvins' grimy post-alternative metal and classic Kennedys-style California punk. 1."Plethysmograph" 2."McGruff the Crime Dog" 3."Yuppie Cadillac" 4."Islamic Bomb" 5."The Lighter Side of Global Terrorism" 6."Caped Crusader" 7."Enchanted Thoughtfist" 8."Dawn of the Locusts"

Alright, so he's never really been away, having become a sort of heir to Noam Chomsky with endless spoken word albums, lectures and random harangues. But this is his first musical thang for some time, and I'm pleased to say it continues along the path set by Lard, Tumor Circus and his Nomeansno collabaration - earthshaking psycho grunge and hysterical paranoid ranting that occasionally sails closer to David Icke than Chomsky, but hell, that's all part of the enjoyment.
There's not much to say on the whole - he's as consistent/inimitable as the Fall - but special mention must be made of the steamhammer 'Plethysmograph' and the way-disturbed 'Dawn Of The Locusts'. The Melvins sound like the last goddamn band on earth, with riffs that'd (hopefully) make old farts like James Hetfield and Tony Iommi retire right now. Buzz Osbourne's wife, Mackie, contributes fascinatingly weird artwork, as always.
Rocks like a sackful of mad bandits.

On paper this collaboration between punk legend Jello Biafra and sludge veterans The Melvins shouldn't work but on record it's the perfect union of loud, crunching riffs and Biafra's unique voice. Opening one-two 'Plethysmograph' and 'McGruff the Crime Dog' showcase King Buzzo's riffmanship and Dale Crover's fantastic drumming that fans of The Melvins will be familiar with. As you'd expect with Biafra the lyrics are politically charged, 'Plethysmograph' is about a device used to monitor sexual arousal ('with a little electronic ring, clamped around your love thang') while 'Islamic Bomb' deconstructs American foreign policy ('so the conga line of missiles, dances out of the storage sites, past the checkpoints left abandoned, kuz the guards took a bribe'). There's none of The Melvins usual psychadelia on here, it's just straight up, balls-out hard rock. Recommended for fans of both The Melvins and Jello Biafra.

This is an exceptional album - possibly the best Biafra has been involved with since "Plastic Surgery Diastaters". The Melvins' guitars are as crunchy as they come, the tempo utterly relentless and the lyrics as biting and liberating as you would expect from Biafra.
It's an astounding and timely creative peak in his career - the world needs Jello Biafra now more than ever and I'm so pleased that he's triumphed with this great album. It's thrilling.

The sludgey riffs from The Melvins put a whole new spin on Jello Biafra's characterstic rants. As opposed to Dead Kennedys psychotic surf-inspired music, The Melvins give Baifra a well needed punch in the gut. Never before have I heard such well crafted anger, these two music legends are perfectly suited and complimentary.
I urge any Dead Kennedys fan, such as myself, or any political individual with a taste for hard rock to buy this CD and give it a permenant place in their CD player.

Biafra is one of the most important people ever in the history of political music. His record label has constantly released innovative works from unusual artists alongside commentaries from prominent political characters. He has also wriiten some of the best punk music and political lyrics that i know of. This is a typically genius pieice of work. Biafra plays with many ideas, analysing the ridiculous consequences of the war on terror and world debt (Islamic Bomb) as well as the absurdity of the US's tightened security (The Lighter Side of Global Terrorism). It is all done with typical class and he has rarely sounded so passionate. The Melvins are of course a great backing band and contribute some blinding music. Caped Crusader is the most musically enjoyable piece but they only really go full-pelt Melvin mental on the final track, totally unlike anything Biafra has been a part of before. Also, Adam Jones of Tool plays on the odd track and his presence can truly be felt at certain points. All in all a fresh album, with a refreshingly modern poltical outlook (no need to pull out an MDC record now!) that comes thoroughly recommended.
