Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
I've always felt that the Dead Kennedy's most creatively fruitful period ended around the time of Plastic Surgery Disasters, and I guess Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death is fairly convincing evidence of that. Of the seventeen tracks on this collection of non-album material, only *two* were recorded after 1982 - and one of them is a comedic re-do of Buzzbomb from Plastic Surgery Disasters. (The other one is an uninteresting cover of I Fought The Law). Not that I'm complaining at all - the other fifteen tracks are top-flight stuff, showing the full diversity of the band and featuring some neat spoken word bits from Jello. (Most impressive is Night of the Living Rednecks, an impromptu live performance necessitated by a guitar breaking mid-song.)
