DEAD KENNEDYS [1985] Frankenchrist

OK, with this Dead Kennedys album the shit has hit the fan as American saying goes. Ronald Reagan's (yep, it's that cowboy guy from 1950's western B-movies) administration and Washington wives (and one among them was Tipper Gore, the wife of Al Gore, an asshole who is now pretending to care about the environment to get people to vote for him) have been working hard to make us all believe in their version of Christianity and Christian fundamentalism, and one of the victims of their witch hunts in USA are Dead Kennedys. In “Frankenchrist” LP there was a H.R. Geiger Giger poster (H.R. is a guy who designed a monster for “Alien” movie amongst other things) and the Christian American retards decided to strike hard against this unholy alliance. Dead Kennedys were sued, together with Alternative Tentacles (the record company which released the record) and if I am not wrong even the pressing plant and a distribution store got sued too. The lawsuit almost ruined the band and the record company. If you're interested in all the trial proceedings I would recommend listening to Jello Biafra's “High Priest Of Harmful Matter” spoken word as it gives you a greater perspective on the whole case. I must admit it was, at least for me personally, a quite revealing thing, which showed me the ways in which the system works, and, it did made me a bigger cynic. “Frankenchrist” is a good album, although not one of my favourites by Dead Kennedys, but songs like “Jock-O-Rama” or “MTV - Get Off The Air” were the ones putting a smile on my face while I listened to this record!
Info stuff: Alternative Tentacles, Wikipedia (Frankenchrist), Discogs (Dead Kennedys), H.R. Geiger (Wikipedia, Official Site).

BTW It`s H.R.Giger, not Geiger!

@ anon - So true! Thanks for the correction, it definitely is H.R. Giger, and not Geiger, my mistake. Geiger is a German physicist who invented the Geiger counter.
