Jello Biafra's Second Spoken Word Album
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album details Jello's account of his 1986/1987 trial where he was charged with "distribution of harmful matter to minors" because his band, Dead Kennedys, enclosed a poster by Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger, famous for creating the aliens and movie set in the movie Alien and Aliens. Also on this album is a talk on censorship, exposing efforts to censor speech in all areas, but focusing on music. Jello Biafra has four spoken word albums out as of this date (6/97). Also look for: No More Cocoons
I Blow Minds For a Living
Beyond the Valley of the Gift Police

"Anyone who is interested in censorship and music and can listen with an open mind would enjoy these CD's."

Nonesuch Explorers | Too Close To L.A. | 10/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Listen to Jello Biafra's account of what Tipper Gore's thought police did to him over his use of a surrealist painting on one of his album covers. The Gores may look blandly innocent and environmentally-conscious, but they have a Religious Right agenda when it comes to education. Biafra outlines the history of fundamentalism's attempt to control our access to information and creative expression, ending with "Tales from the Trial" about his own experiences in court as a result of the Parents Music Resource Center's censorship campaign."
