(CLASSIC), DK AT THERE BEST
By griffinsd (SAN DEIGO , CA.)
||Dead Kennedys-Great Live CD!!|
Great sound for a live recording, especially considering it was recorded in the 1970's! The DK's are a very talented group of musicians,in addition to being very funny.
By rsmith16 (Wisconsin, USA)
This CD is by far, one of the the best DK CD's. Sure it's live, but the recording quality is great, and the crowd interaction is funny as hell.
By Matt "The Z Man" Adams (Frederick, MD, USA)
||Essential D.K purchase|
A must have album for any true punk! Both of the new tracks to me ('Gaslight' and 'Have I The Right') are gems.
By Wayne (Nothingham, ENGLAND)
||Essential For Any DKs Fan!!|
If you love the DKs first album, you need to buy this. Brilliant sound quality and their cover of The Honeycombs "Have I The Right" is hillarious.

Complete Discography CD (1988)
Live at the Deaf Club 1979 songs The Washington, D.C. straightedge hardcore punk scene began with Minor Threat. The band recorded two LPs on its own Dischord label, plus an EP and the miscellaneous singles that are collected on this CD. Many of the early recordings on this collection seethe with teen-age angst and indignation. The songs rage against bullies, religious hypocrisy, and the herd mentality.
Other songs, taken from later in Minor Threat's career, feature tighter and more sophisticated playing. Metallic flourishes tinge the guitar work, vocal harmonies abound, and song dynamics vary more than on the earlier record. On certain songs, Ian MacKaye's lyrics address the complexities of friendship, loyalty, and self-expression. "Look Back and Laugh," "Little Friend," and "It Follows" all incline more toward introspection and ambiguity; conveying loss and sadness in addition to outrage. This second set of songs seems to especially anticipate MacKaye's later work with Fugazi. The album also contains a few playful numbers like the sing-along cover of "Stepping Stone," and "Cashing In," a mocking dig at greedy musicians. Minor Threat believed completely in the power of its music, helping earn a loyal fan following and the respect of numerous other bands who emulated its style and credo.
Recorded at Inner Ear Studios, Arlington, Virginia between April 1981 and December 1983.

Damaged CD (1981)
Live at the Deaf Club 1979 CD music Perhaps the quintessential California punk band, and one of the founding fathers of hardcore, Black Flag is to America what the Sex Pistols are to the U.K. DAMAGED is the band's most loved album, featuring some of its best-known songs. Though the group's speedy, full-frontal assault laid the groundwork for the faster-and-louder generation of punks to come, the guitar interplay of Greg Ginn and Dez Cadena is still melodic, and often even hook-filled.
The songs, delivered in an impassioned rant by a young Henry Rollins, are classic Cal-punk, mocking American complacency ("Six Pack," "TV Party") with a winning combination of anger and satire, as well as an ingratiating sense of structure. Also included on the disc is the early, pre-Rollins EP JEALOUS AGAIN, on which the band similarly rages against the machine, though the attack is a bit less refined. DAMAGED is an American punk classic, and the cornerstone of any punk collection.

Personnel: Henry Rollins (vocals); Dez Cadena (guitar, background vocals); Greg Ginn (guitar); Charles Dukowski (bass); Robo (drums).

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."
'Plastic Surgery Disasters / In God We Trust, Inc' is the best selling DK's album. This Manifesto digitally remastered (by original sound engineer) reissue couples their 1982 'Plastic Surgery Disasters' LP with the highly controversial 1981 12 inch EP 'In God We Trust, Inc'. Finally available again and sounding better than ever!

|Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death CD (1987)
Live at the Deaf Club 1979 album for sale GIVE ME CONVENIENCE OR GIVE ME DEATH is a compilation of singles, B-sides, compilation tracks and live tracks.
Principally recorded in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Includes liner notes and artwork by Jello Biafra and John Yates.
Digitally remastered by John Cuniberti and East Bay Ray (The Plant Mastering, Sausalito, California).
If you could only own a single Dead Kennedys' album, your best bet would be 1987's 17-track compilation GIVE ME CONVENIENCE OR GIVE ME DEATH. Collecting the controversial quartet's best-known tracks as well as scattered oddities, CONVENIENCE is the ultimate Dead Kennedys set. The Dead Kennedys are categorized by singer/activist Jello Biafra's biting political commentary, the group's unwillingness to takes themselves too seriously, and some of the most memorable punk-pop of all-time (music that influenced such future chart-toppers as Green Day and the Offspring). Highlights include such punk anthems as "Police Truck," "Too Drunk to Fuck," "California Uber Alles," and "Holiday in Cambodia," plus the hilarious stage improv "Night of the Living Rednecks."
Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death is a compilation album by the Dead Kennedys. The album is made up of songs (or in some cases, different versions of songs) that did not appear on the band's studio albums. This is a wide and deep collection of favorites like "California √úber Alles" and "Holiday in Cambodia," but the real reason to pick up this disc is the more obscure and rare material and of course the non LP hit "Too Drunk to Fuck."
The Dead Kennedys: Klaus Fluoride (vocals, bass); D.H. Peligro (vocals, drums); Jello Biafra (vocals); East Bay Ray (guitar, Echoplex).
Producers include: Geza X, The Dead Kennedys, Jim Keylor, Thom Wilson, Oliver Dicicco.
Compilation producer: Jello Biafra.
Engineers include: Oliver Dicicco, Jim Keylor, John Cuniberti.
Additional personnel: 6025 (guitar); Bruce Slesinger [a.k.a. Ted] (drums); Geza X (background vocals).
|Frankenchrist CD (1985)
Live at the Deaf Club 1979 CD music Digitally remastered by John Cuniberti and East Bay Ray (The Plant Mastering, Sausalito, California).
FRANKENCHRIST is the Dead Kennedys album that garnered them the most public attention, albeit for reasons the band would ultimately regret. California prosecutors, clearly no fans of politically charged punk rock, declared an H.R. Giger poster the Kennedys included with the album's original pressing obscene. The result was a protracted two-year legal fight. The band ultimately won it, but the effort exhausted them and led to their ultimate breakup.
Nevertheless, the music remains. It's still primo punk, and as relevant as ever, thanks to lead singer Jello Biafra's stinging lyrical swipes at the powers that be, and the gloriously metallic clang of East Bay Ray's guitar. Classic stuff.
Classic 1985 release from the Dead Kennedys, the antidote to Reaganomics! Take a trip back to the 80s, when the conservative revolution was in full swing, MTV actually played videos, jocks were only starting to invade punk shows and the band was arrested on obscenity charges. Incredible songwriting that still sounds timeless, combined with amazing guitars and production. The real deal.
Recorded at Hyde Street Studios, San Francisco, California. Includes liner notes by Jello Biafra.
The Dead Kennedys: Klaus Flouride (vocals, bass); D.H. Peligro (vocals, drums); Jello Biafra (vocals); East Bay Ray (guitar, 12-string electric Bellzouki, synthesizer).
|Bedtime for Democracy CD (1986)
Live at the Deaf Club 1979 buy CD music Although nobody knew it at the time, this was to be the Dead Kennedys' final official studio album; exhausted by the legal battle brought on by their previous album FRANKENCHRIST, they threw in the towel shortly after recording this one. Fortunately, they go out here in a blaze of angry glory.
BEDTIME FOR DEMOCRACY is arguably their most explicitly political album. It's full of furious, supersonic punk assaults on Reagan-era topics, including the Rambo movies ("Rambozo the Clown"), media brainwashing ("Fleshdunce"), fashionable politics ("Anarchy for Sale"), and even punk rock itself ("Chickenshit Conformist"). There's also a hilarious version--certainly the fastest ever recorded--of David Alan Coe's anthem of blue collar dissatisfaction, "Take This Job and Shove It."
Digitally remastered (by the original sound engineer) reissue of the Dead Kennedy's final studio album from 1986 features 21 tracks, including 'Chickshit Conformist', 'Hop With The Jet Set', Anarchy For Sale'. Classic political punk rock, often imitated, never duplicated.
Additional personnel includes: Tim Jones (synthesizer); Jayed Scotti (timbales); Cal Andrew, Blaze (background vocals).
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Recorded at City Sound and Hyde Street Studios, San Francisco, California.
The Dead Kennedys: Jello Biafra, Klaus Flouride, D.H. Peligro, East Bay Ray.
