Dead Kennedys

Plastic Surgery Disasters

Manifesto 42901

Released on August 12, 2016


Originally released in 1982. Remastered from original tapes. Includes a 28 page booklet. The epic sweep of PLASTIC SURGERY DISASTERS, in both sonic texture and thematic depth, sets it apart as one of punk's most highly evolved musical and artistic statements. Vocalist Jello Biafra's rage had developed into a calmer but more strident kind of anger. Fortified by a wider variety of sounds, including horns, clarinets, and East Bay Ray's rich palette of aggressive guitar textures, this album attacked the usual DK targets. Our bloated, mentally lazy consumer culture is lambasted in the thick, intimidating 'Buzzbomb' and the stingingly sarcastic 'Winnebago Warrior.' Several of society's more insidious archetypes are taken on as well, as in the goofy 'Terminal Preppie,' and the furious, adrenaline-fueled 'Well Paid Scientist.' Firmly in place are Biafra's trademark paranoid anti-government diatribes; society's false sense of security is addressed in the breakneck-speed rant of 'Government Flu,' the far-reaching metaphor of 'Trust Your Mechanic,' and the angry theatrics of 'I Am The Owl.'The Dead Kennedys: Jello Biafra (vocals); East Bay Ray (guitar); Klaus Flouride (bass); D.H. Pelligro (drums). Digitally remastered by John Cuniberti and East Bay Ray (The Plant Mastering, Sausalito, California). Additional personnel includes: Melissa Webber (spoken vocals); Dave Barrett, Geoffrey Lyall, Bruce Ackely (horns); Ninotchka (background vocals). Producers: Thom Wilson, East Bay Ray, The Dead Kennedys, Geza X. Engineers: Olivier DiCicco, John Cuniberti, Mark Wallner. Recorded at Hyde Street Studios and Mobius Music, San Francisco, California.

Classic Dead Kennedys. This album shows no lack of the frantic, sarcastic, political charged punk that makes DK so bad ass. A couple songs on here that influenced me to get this were, Riot and Terminal Preppie.I would reccomend this album to any fan. If you're just starting on DK, you can really pick and choose. Some are better than others, but none are bad, in my oppinion.

I haven't heard much of the early Kennedys, so I bought this on a friends advice. At first I diddn't know what to think. Its alot of story telling put to fast hardcore music and of course Jello's weird voice(When I first heard the kennedys a while back I couldn't get used to it. I've listened to this lp quite a few times and I fucking love it. Buy it, turn it up really loud and listen to it a couple of times because it grows on you.
