Too smart to be punks. Not smart enough to be anything else. Probably the truest thing ever said of this band--who, for a time in the early 1980s, represented to a quivering Middle America everything that was sick, seditious and unholy about punk rock. Singer Jello Biafra almost instinctively recognised the wisdom of marrying leftist radicalism with overdriven guitars--that, yes, the medium would swamp the message, but it would also empower it. Ultimately, however, the band were undone by the limitations of their format. Considered song-by-song--and there are 21 of them here, ranging from the compelling ("Buzzbomb", "Forest Fire") to the truly abysmal ("Religious Vomit")--their sound was too abrasive, and their pace too unvarying, to ever extend the limits of the form. And while certain sentiments remain valid--"Nazi Punks Fuck Off" is as noble (and as necessary) a gesture today as it was back then--it fell to a later generation (Black Flag, Minor Threat, H�sker D�) to bring actual songcraft to hardcore. --Andrew McGuire
