Dead Kennedys - Live & Alive

This little beauty is a live show from all the way back in 1984 - wow, 23 years this year. Damn, DaddyRich should be calling himself GrandDaddyRich pretty soon. Either way, I just love the Dead Kennedys and jumped on their bandwagon way too late, after I finally gave in to my inner punk around '93 or '94. So they were already well through with eachother by the time I caught on. So, I have been assembling a collection of everything I can find to make up for lost time ever since. I have also purchased many DK albums and a boatload of Alternative Tentacles t-shirts, so I hope Jello Biafra doesn't get too upset by this. This is also, apparently, a German import and as is the case with most of these, the song titles get lost in translation (I mean, seriously...'A Child And His Lawn Mother?') If you are a DK fan, you will have fun spotting these, but shoddy track-naming doesn't take away from the power of the music and words. Their like has not been seen very often since their demise but they did encourage many to not be afraid to say what they meant, even if it was an unpopular statement. I can't help but believe that Rage Against The Machine owes a large debt to them, even though Rage didn't cover them on the 'Renegades' album.
