Jello Biafra’s back with his inimitable brand of caustic wit. The Guantanamo School Of Medicine, now sans bassist Bill Gould, sounds a bit like Frankenchrist-era Dead Kennedys with some metallic ‘roid rage. These tunes are tight, catchy, and topical—all three songs are attempts at punk rock anthems for the Occupy movement, sadly a bit too late to the parade, but it’s the thought that counts. FCCs on 3.|
1. (7:33) Furious rockabilly riffs, almost catchier than anything East Bay Ray cranked out, blasting over a longwinded narrative about corporate greed and the working class struggle.
2. (3:16) Fast, relentless, yet goofy and cartoonish—you’d think it was a song left off the Plastic Surgery Disasters record if they weren’t heaping shit on Barack-star.
3. (3:43) Odd, bouncy, upbeat surf/reggae/whatever tune featuring Joey Shithead of DOA. FCC “kick your ass” (is Jello required to sing that phrase at least once on every record?)
