If you're going to own one DK's record, this is it. It's all here in raw, uncut form--Jello Biafra's sneering vocals, the satire that poked like a stick in the eye, and the instrumental blitz that joined East Bay Ray's surf guitar with slaughterhouse rhythm. Soon after this debut, Biafra would fall into Lenny Bruce's trap of parading his legal hassles instead of making art. On Fresh Fruit
, though, he throws firebomb after firebomb, hitting every chosen target with "I Kill Children," "Holiday in Cambodia," "California Uber Alles," and "Let's Lynch the Landlord." Dated? A little, sure, but it remains a landmark of lefty politics and violent music. --Michael Ruby
180 gram vinyl version of the 1980 debut album from San Francisco's most popular and powerful political punks. Filled to the brim with rage and thought provoking lyrics, plus some damn good songwriting and excellent production for a punk album from this time period. A damn classic! Includes the "hits" "California Uber Alles," "Kill the Poor," "Holiday In Cambodia" and a killer cover of "Viva Las Vegas."
