Don’t worry, this is not a deranged albino minutes away from a total mental breakdown lecturing you about how a deist ‘for real’ wanted religion mixed with government and that people fighting for freedom from a tyrannical church state wanted to establish a new church state back in 1776. That’s Beckerhead’s job over at Faux Noise.
This “Founder Friday” is all about punk rock. Old school punk rock from the early days. Kicking off this new feature and kicking out a tired, worn out month of May we have Dead Kennedys. Very influential indeed and even if you’re not a fan of the genre, you’re probably heard of them at some point in time, or at least their singer Jello Biafra.
Anyway, today’s track is off the 1980 album Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables. It’s called California Uber Alles. This is the song I mentioned in of mystere’s post about Jerry Brown running for governor in California. This is the original version about Jerry Brown. Over the years there have been different versions, for Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. I’ll be featuring those at another time.
