Jello Biafra

Become The Media

(Dead Kennedys)

Alternative Tentacles 260

Released on January 8, 2001


$17.50

The surprise Green Party presidential nomination and the growing rebellion against corporations has aroused interest in JELLO's spoken word side as never before. This election year special combines fresh reflections on the WTO convention in Seattle; democracy; e-issues; the Green Party & other election issues; post Columbine High School backlash on kids who think; and our ever more interesting times taken from recent live performances in Boulder, Seattle and Denver. JELLO BIAFRA's Become The Media is the sixth installment in his spoken word albums. JELLO BIAFRA is the former leader of DEAD KENNEDYS and collaborator in the ongoing LARD project. JELLO's last spoken word release If Evolution is Outlawed, Only Outlaws Will Evolve was released in November 1998 to rave reviews. Recently, Alternative Tentacles Records released THE NO WTO COMBO Live From The Battle In Seattle LP/CD which featured JELLO BIAFRA, Kim Thayil and Krist Novoselic protesting & rocking against the World Trade Organization last December. This release will be available to the book word via AK Press.

this has got some great stuff on it, jellos expresses some great points of view some i had never thought of before, if you like dead kennedys or any of jellos other work you should check this out and find out what he's really thinking, K.O. the W.T.O. was awesome i had no idea what's really been going on

great spoken word by a great man. hours of listening. easy listening that is. jello speaks very clearly. not like noam chomsky, he mumbles too much. im not saying noam chomsky is worse than jello, just that he speaks more dull and you have to pay more attention to him. maybe the problem is that im from norway.. anyway, this is interesting stuff.

this has got to be one of the best cds i own. at first u might think that a spoken word album might get boring after i while, but this one hasnt. i listen to some of it almost everyday and it still keeps my interesting every time. its also pretty educational about a lot of stuff like the WTO. theres also a lot of funny parts.

Pretty good political and social views. You have to pay attention, or else you won't know what he's gonna be talking about. And another thing: too long! they should split it into at least 5-6 tracks per cd.

Support Alternative Tentacles and keep buying Jello's stuff! I'd recommend to get this to learn how the other members DK were trying to ruin the name and Jello. Good cd otherwise, if your interested in political scandals and whatnot check this out.

Classic Jello Biafra. I think all the punks who are all anti-authority and all anti-government should listen to some stuff by Biafra, and read some things by Noam Chomsky. Instead of just being ignorant towards what they hate. Buy BUy BUY! yea!

Even tho it's not music I listen to it so much I've learned some of the words. It's about 4 hours long altogether and it never gets boring. If you are an activist or are just interested in politics then this is a definite must-have
