Former Dead Kennedys vocalist delivers his first concept album since Frankenchrist, Eye-catching Winston Smith cover art, Touring on three continents throughout 2013.

"Wrecking Ball" was one thing. Now comes the long-awaited anti-austerity blast-a-thon with the teeth, venom and one-of-a-kind music of Jello Biafra.

The second full-length from Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine picks up where last fall's SHOCK-U-PY! left off.

Covered in gruesome detail this time are corruption ("The Brown Lipstick Parade"), "Werewolves of Wall Street," "Road Rage," and corporate McMedia making pop stars out of small-time crooks to shield the big ones ("John Dillinger") or tabloid pop stars to lobotomize everyone else ("Hollywood Goof Disease").

The title track shines a light on our never-ending foreign policy disasters in ways even Jello's spoken word albums never did.

"Crapture" is the perfect song to play for those lovely End Times believers, pointing out how much better the world would be for everyone else left behind-replete with melodies on the scale Biafra hasn't really touched since "Moon Over Marin." Above all, White People and the Damage Done rocks! No pop punk here, just Jello and crew taking punk fire in unexplored directions, with wall-of-sound, in-your-face production from Marshall Lawless and Matt Kelley (lots of Jello projects, Hieroglyphics, The Coup, Digital Underground, Zen Guerrilla).

Lineup retains the double-barreled guitar attack of Ralph Spight (Victims Family, Freak Accident) and Kimo Ball (Freak Accident, Griddle, Mol Triffid), joined by bassist Andrew Weiss (Rollins Band, Ween, Butthole Surfers, more) and drummer Paul Della Pelle (Helios Creed, Nik Turner's Space Ritual, and Philly HC legends Ruin).

Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine will be touring through most of 2013 on at least three continents to promote this beast.

The live shows are the real deal. If you like OFF! or Dead Ending, fer cryin' out loud, don't miss this!
