Reviews & Opinions

TIM YOHANNAN, MAXIMUM ROCK'N'ROLL, 1985: A classic KENNEDYS' cover opens up to reveal a very controversial artwork poster and a record that will surprise many. Lyrically, it's Biafra's satire, biting as ever, and aimed at jocks, MTV, work, and the sick absurdities of bourgeois life. Most of the tunes are mid-tempo punk this time, with a couple of thrashers interspersed. But there's a more "psychedelic" feel to many of the songs with Ray's often-twangy guitar very cleanly produced. There's even one (gasp!) experimental number, and also shocking, Jello actually sings (as opposed to yells) on several tracks.
