Dead Kennedys were a teenage obsession for me. So much so that at least a couple of year 11 assignments involved some reference to the band. Can't say I listened to them all too much in my 20s, but revisiting them in my 30s with more music/history under my belt only enhanced the experience.

My main takeaway from this reappraisal is that full-length #2 'Plastic Surgery Disasters' is as essential as all of the early singles and ‘Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables'. While "Dead Kennedys" an "subtle" don't exactly belong in the same sentence, a nuanced approach to musical inventiveness and social statements is prioritised over shock and controversy. The album closer, 'Moon Over Marin' is an A+ all-time track! - Nic (Repressed Records)
