Here’s what’s included:
JELLO BIAFRA & THE GUANTANAMO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE “TEA PARTY REVENGE PORN” – LP
“Tea Party Revenge Porn” the first full album since 2014 by Jello Biafra and The Guantanamo School Of Medicine is finally here! This is very strong stuff. Hear the inimitable Mr. B skewer the place we’ve put ourselves in, like no one else would – or could – as he and The Guantanamo School of Medicine capture the full power of the live shows on disc as never before. Only so many artists have a track record of lyrics this good, and back it up with music as good or better. It’s usually one of the other, but rarely this fierce. As germs and police riots rage, there’s no better primal scream therapy than a long-awaited new Jello Biafra album. From Dead Kennedys to Lard to the now-classic albums with the Melvins, DOA, NoMeansNo, Mojo Nixon; and of course, The Guantanamo School of Medicine, “Tea Party Revenge Porn” is right up there with all of it.
ITCHY-O “Sypherlot/Hallowmass 2020” – 2xLP
The 57-member neural necromancers ITCHY-O have returned to unleash “SYPHERLOT/HALLOWMASS 2020”, a double-live album recorded during the chaos collective’s groundbreaking 2020 drive-in concert series. Serving as documentation to a fantastical escape from the unrelenting barrage of humanity besieged by a global pandemic and is a must have for any record collection. Jello calls it their best release so far, we couldn’t agree more!
LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS “COCKADOODLEDEUX” – LP
The Legendary Shack Shakers now mark their 25th anniversary as a band on Earth! To celebrate, they’ve welcomed former members to record and ALL COUNTRY & WESTERN album! That’s right! From Spaghetti Western to Bluegrass, Western Swing to Rockabilly, Tex-Mex to Americana, the variety of the genre is on full display here friends! Titling it Cockadoodledeux was admittedly, done as a reference to 2002’s legendary Cockadoodledon’t, an album which many fans were first made aware of the group. Indeed, this record was designed to bookend that other album. Cockadoodledeux serves to signal a bold new era. Just as the plucky, two-headed chick emerges from it’s egg on the cover, so too begins a fresh start for the bands’s creative energies. A millennium of fans both young and old, once again, get to lean in, listen and – as always – expect the unexpected!
JELLO BIAFRA & THE GUANTANAMO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE “NO MORE SELFIES/THE GHOST OF VINCE LOMBARDI” – 7″
Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School of Medicine deliver the two songs missing from the “Tea Party Revenge Porn” LP version on vinyl! The instant classics, “No More Selfies” and “The Ghost of Vince Lombardi”! Why on a 7” and not on the LP? The high speed “driving tests” Jello always uses to find the best rockin’ song order for his albums (since the Dead Kennedy days of “Fresh Fruit”!) meant going “lean, mean (and LOUDER!)” for the LP version, and two more songs in the middle for the CDs and download.These are not outtakes or “bonus tracks”. They make quite a strong 45 on their own. So play often! Play loud! And don’t let “Winning is the Only Thing” cloud your judgment!
Like it still does a certain clown who used to be president.
TSUNAMI BOMB “STILL STANDING” – 7″
With their new 7” “Still Standing”, Tsunami Bomb has returned with their unique sound of keyboard driven bombastic punk rock with a dark edge and soaring vocals that gives an incredible fresh spin on some classic tracks, “El Diablo” and “Irish Boys”. Side B has two tracks exclusive to the vinyl, from a bootleg recording of the band in New York in 2018! On two of their most popular songs of all time, “Take The Reins” and “Lemonade” the band is almost drowned out by the East Coast crowd who screams every word back at them. While the “Still Standing” 7” was supposed to be just for their street team “The Bomb Squad”, Jello Biafra caught wind of it and insisted it be released on Alternative Tentacles, allowing the world to hear this new classic from Tsunami Bomb.
DEAD ENDING “AMERICAN VIRUS” – 7″
Stemming from conversations between vocalist Vic Bondi (Articles of Faith) and guitarist Jeff Dean (Airstream Futures, All Eyes West, The Bomb) about the obvious politicization of the pandemic, Dead Ending’s latest release on Alternative Tentacles Records, “American Virus” presents two screaming new tracks; the title track “American Virus” and “Walter Benjamin At The Border” with a digital bonus cover track “Complete Control” by The Clash. All three highlight the unrelenting, uncompromising, political hardcore sound that Dead Ending has long been known for was exploding out from the studio speakers and ready to be unleashed upon the masses.
All that for $66!
