PSD - arguably the best album the DK's did... FOREST FIRE, MOON OVER MARIN, WELLPAID SCIENTIST, RIOT - It's a pretty special record!!!
It was a VERY bad mistake for the band minus Jello to tour as the Dead Kennedys a few years back... totally soiled what was previously an immaculate reputation. Strong personalities like Jello just can't be replaced and some things are definitely better left in the past. I'm sure the DKs was reasonably good to them all $$$$wise. It's definitely fucked up for good now though. The reputation seems to have vanished!!! A damn pity people can't respect their own creative oeuvre enough not to drag it through the septic pit!!!

Still love Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables best. I played the tar out of that record when it first came out.
The legal battles between Jello and the rest of the band were NASTY. That will never be reconciled.
