Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine Detail 'White People and the Damage Done'
Published Jan 11, 2013We've known for a while now that Jello Biafra and his Guantanamo School of Medicine were readying a new LP titled White People and the Damage Done, and the politically minded punk crew have now confirmed a March 19 release via Biafra's Alternative Tentacles.
A tracklisting for the band full-length follow-up to 2009's The Audacity of Hype has yet to arrive, but some light about the song cycle has been shed in a press release. Along with Occupy Movement tribute "Shock-You-Py!", which appeared on an EP of the same name in 2012, the new LP finds Biafra sounding off on a number of issues from corruption ("Werewolves of Wall Street") to "never-ending foreign policy disasters" ("White People and the Damage Done").
The album was produced by Marshall Lawless and Matt Kelley (Hieroglyphics, the Coup, Digital Underground), and finds Biafra supported by guitarists Ralph Spight (Victims Family, Freak Accident) and Kimo Ball (Freak Accident, Griddle, Mol Triffid), bassist Andrew Weiss (Rollins Band) and drummer Paul Della Pelle (Helios Creed).
