Here it is at last! The long-rumored, sweat-soaked live album from
the night Bill Davis (Dash Rip Rock) and Fred Le Blanc (Cowboy
Mouth) dared Jello Biafra to join them during Jazzfest and sing all
classic New Orleans soul, rhythm and blues, and (at Jello’s request)
garage songs! Joining in were piano Wildman Pete “Wet Dawg”
Gordon (Mojo Nixon), Pepper Keenan (Down, Corrosion of Conformity)
and a wacky horn section from Egg Yolk Jubilee and Morning
40 Federation that even includes a sousaphone!
You want loose? We got loose! You want crazy? That’s here, too.
Walk on Jindal’s Splinters is one of the all-time great “you are there”
high-energy live albums—audience participation galore, plenty of
trademark Jello banter, and full-on soul / trash / frat / garage gumbo
from eleven of New Orleans’ finest, just playing their asses off and
having a good time doing it. The album also showcases a whole
’nother side of Jello Biafra: his deep, pre-punk roots known only to a
handful of vinyl junkies and anyone lucky enough to catch his DJ gigs.
For all those whose interest in Jello goes beyond the punk persona to
Jello Biafra, the singer, this is for you.
Maximum trash appeal! Southern roadhouse debauchery at its finest!
Calls to mind those sing-along, clap-along frat-rock platters from
The Premiers to The Kingsman to Geno Washington’s Hipsters, Flipsters…
series, Swingin’ Medallions, or even Slade Alive! You can almost
feel the grease and voodoo dripping from the walls!
