Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine

White People And The Damage Done

If there is one artist who has had an amazing career in punk rock, it would be Jello Biafra. The legendary punk icon has returned with his Guantanamo School of Medicine band to deliver yet another political classic packed full of anthemic songs of protest.
Biafra sounds in fine form with his trademark unmistakable vocals while his backing band are solid musicians and it has to be said that there is no shaking off any similarities to Biafra’s former band, the Dead Kennedys. This is punk rock the way it should be played. Sure, the Dead Kennedys are a thing of the past but they are still as relevant today as they were in the 80s. Now since a reunion will never happen, we can still relish in the fact that Jello Biafra is still releasing music that is on par with any of his previous collaborations with the likes of No Means No, DOA or Mojo Nixon, or his many years fronting the DKs. He has never strayed from the formula that made him the important figure he is today and that to me is just brilliant.

At a time when punk has become about all the small things and American idiots, Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Idiots are dishing out the real spirit of early 80’s punk rock and I for one, love it! White People And The Damage Done is a flawless release with incredible quirky and interesting songs that will no doubt stand the test of time.
