Alternative Tentacles' 30th anniversary 

Wednesday, Nov 4 2009

The indie label is still run by original Dead Kennedys visionary Jello Biafra, who now fronts the Guantánamo School of Medicine, a slam-banging vehicle for his never-say-die punk politics. Biafra's singular brand of vitriol remains fun, more absurdist comedy than tedious punditry.
