07/20/12: SHOCK-YOU-PY! by Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School Of Medicine
Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine released two versions of their new song SHOCK-U-PY! as a pay-what-you-want digital download. The two versions are an acoustic sing-a-long mix and a louder rock-a-long mix. The two mixes are available right now on Jello's bandcamp page: jellobiafra.bandcamp.com
Biafra explains: "Better late than never, here's our tribute inspired by the Occupy movement. Not just 'occupy' - SHOCK-YOU-PY! - since my favorite kind of resistance can have theater, pranks and other creative sabotage - non-violent, of course!"
The SHOCK-U-PY! EP (virus 446 - vinyl, CD EP and digital) hits in early fall, followed by the long-awaited new JB/GSM full-length, White People and the Damage Done (virus 450 - vinyl, CD and digital.) "Vinyl and CDs will take a few weeks so we're posting "SHOCK-U-PY!" online now - in two forms. "There's the "sing-a-long mix" from the EP- semi-acoustic and ready made (for the most part) for singing at street protests. Or if you want the usual "rip your head off" approach, there's the "rock-a-long mix" with the guitars way louder. So, hey - now you have freedom of choice: two mixes, pay or don't pay, you decide. Please help us out if you can. I'm way in debt trying to finish the album. Benefit compilations for Occupy can just take it, it's right there!"
The SHOCK-U-PY! EP will also include the non-album song "Barackstar O'Bummer" plus a remix of "We Occupy" another song for the uprising Jello guested on with D.O.A.. "We both go way back in the direct action side of things so I'm honored Joe asked me to sing on this."
"Occupy may be out of the corporate news machine right now but that hardly means that it's gone away and it won't go away until the problems go away. To me it's a reigniting of the anti-corporate 'spirit of Seattle' but this time it's bigger because times are more severe.
The album White People and the Damage Done will include the title track, "Brown Lipstick Parade" (about guess what?), "Werewolves Of Wall Street", "Road Rage", "Mid-East Peace Process", "Crapture" (about the upside to being "left behind" as naked bigots fly heavenward), a ramped-up revival of "Burgers Of Wrath" from Jello and Mojo Nixon's Prairie Home Invasion album and more. "'Burgers Of Wrath' is probably the best song I'll ever write about unemployment and homelessness and works well as both a punk song and an americana song. I've been wanting to play it again for a long time."
The Guantanamo School of Medicine are now Mr. Biafra on vocals and tuneage; Ralph Spight guitars, vocals, keyboards; Kimo Ball still more guitars, Andrew Weiss on bass; plus new drummer Paul Della Pelle (from Philadelphia HC legends Ruin, Helios Creed, Nik Turner's Space Ritual, and more.) EP and album recordings by the usual suspects. Recorded and Mixed by Matt Kelley (lots of Jello, Hiroglyphics, The Coup, Digital Underground, Zen Guerilla, Victims Family, etc.) and Produced by Marshall Lawless.

The latest episode of What Would Jello Do features Jello talking about Occupy Wall Street!
08/19/11: Jello Biafra on the freeing of the West Memphis 3
Today the West Memphis 3- Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr., and Jason Baldwin, were released from prison! Here is a statement from Jello Biafra, long-time supporter of the WM3:
"Wow, some good news for once! I'm very happy and more than a little moved. We need to give them support and space right now. Since they were wrongfully locked up as teenagers, this is basically the beginning of their free adult lives.
What I still can't get over is how the prosecutors and police have let the real murderer of innocent young children run free all these years just so they would not have to admit they were wrong. The same goes for Mumia Abu-Jamal. Wouldn't they rather catch the real killer?"
West Memphis Three press conference after their release today, August 18, 2011.
