The long-awaited anti-austerity blast-a-thon with the teeth, venom and one-of-a-kind music of Jello Biafra is finally upon us. The second full-length album from Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine picks up where last year’s Shock-U-Py! EP left off. Covered in gruesome detail is corruption (“The Brown Lipstick Parade”,“Werewolves of Wall Street” and “Road Rage”), corporate McMedia making pop stars out of small-time crooks (“John Dillinger”) and tabloid pop stars to lobotomize everyone else (“Hollywood Goof Disease”). The title track shines a light on our never-ending foreign policy disasters in ways even Jello’s spoken word albums never did. “Crapture” is the perfect song to play for those lovely End Times believers, pointing out how much better the world would be for everyone else left behind – with melodies on the scale Biafra hasn’t really touched since “Moon Over Marin.”
White People and the Damage Done will be released on Alternative Tentacles on8th April 2013. Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine will be touring through most of 2013 on at least three continents to promote this beast. The live shows are the real deal.
