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.

Good album. The poster inside is really cool, too. Jello does a lot of characters, really cool intros, the cover art's awesome too. I don't even know why I have to explain. JELLO BIAFRA. GENIUS. BUY IT.
