Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine Audacity Of Hype

Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine Audacity Of Hype
It would seem as if hanging around extreme musicians such as Napalm Death has finally rubbed off on political thorn/punk rock legend Jello Biafra. Where much of his work over the past decade has been relegated to commentary CDs and the occasional forgettable song that could never dream of living up to his storied career, that tide is about to shift with Audacity Of Hype. Yes, this is outright hype but for once with an otherwise untouchable artist such as this ― who do you know that ever pans a Biafra outing? ― it's entirely justified. Energised, spirited and rather aggressive, the album boasts a guttural rock'n'roll basis reminiscent of classic Dead Kennedys tunes such as "California Uber Alles" and "Too Drunk To Fuck" without ever trying to be that. It's clearly just the same inspiration barging forth. Even Biafra sounds possessed, pointed and not annoying for the first time in ages. Grinding and expedient, intelligent and furious, this album spells good times for Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine. (Alternative Tentacles)
