Former Dead Kennedys vocalist and founder of the punk record label Alternative Tentacles, Jello Biafra has also made a name for himself as a captivating and opinionated speaker. He's devoted several spoken-word releases to his sharp observations on American culture and politics, becoming a champion of free speech in the process. On this three-disc set -- recorded during a nationwide tour in 2000 and subtitled "Field recordings from the year of screaming dangerously" -- Biafra speaks out about everything from the Green Party and education reform to his opposition to conformity, censorship, and the war on drugs. With his searing wit and congenial tone, he also conveys his bitterness toward the media, corporate America, "Hellburbia," and the "Clintonoids." With this collection, Biafra shows us why he remains one of his generation's most captivating speakers.
