Don't Buy or Sell It's Crap

This one’s a stinker.

Record Store Day features a release by the Dead Kennedys, only it’s not Jello-approved as far as I can see.

Who in the hell releases their rehearsal studio tapes and calls it a “new” album? Good Lord, quit trying to shake the pennies out of that dying carcass.

This release comes from Manifesto Records, and here’s what we think about that:

Doctored versions of all the old releases are released on Manifesto Records. Biafra does not endorse these re-releases and suggests that anyone thinking of buying them stop and consider where the money is going first. Their live CDs are embarrassingly weak on the ears and are not recommended.

I’ll go with Mr. Biafra’s recommendation and pass on faux-Dead Kennedys merchandise. Boo! Boo! Boo!

While we’re at it, go support Alternative Tentacles instead.
