Item description for Beyond the Valley of the Gift Police by Jello Biafra...

Spoken word offerings. The targets---from Bill Clinton to experts---are all there. The humor is wicked, and the information is spot-on as ever. Wit and wisdom. Essential. Three CD set.
"Whew---a lot of information to wade through. Consider this almost an audio book, a dissemination of plenty of scary data. Biafra details his encounters with the forces of evil, those who would censor, turn the country into a theocracy, and those in power who are already robbing us blind. (Suburban Voice)

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond the Valley of the Gift Police?

Jello and DK spoken word  Jul 14, 2005
The Punk Rock Group known as the Dead Kennedys remains one of more intelligent, focused and precise punk bands ever. Their songs were very composed, energetic and their lyrics always were at least somewhat intelligent. When the DK's played a show, it wasn't just about rocking out it was about having a brain, thinking, and being punk in politics.

Band leader Jello Biafra goes hard left on his spoken word masterpieces. I'm centrist myself, yet I feel I should support leftist media in the face of right wing radio stations popping up all around the country. I'm also very religious myself (I read the Bible often) yet understand Jello when he talks about certain portions of the "religious right" (people who try to use religion as an underhanded and slimy way to gain political office).

Beyond the Valley of the Gift Police - what does it mean, you ask? It means living beyond stupid greed and hatred. It means having the maturity and focus. The Valley of the Gift Police seems to be a term for a totally soul depraved culture that seeks meaning in pavlov-esque rewards. It means thinking, using ones brain, ones grey matter - not simply living as some sort of human pavlovian dog. Thinking outside the box.

Now, Jello isn't what you would call a hard intellectual, yet he has his political direction and he sticks to it. Out of any of the spoken word types, I would have to say he is far and away the most articulate. The material here is a bit old (its from around 94) yet it will reveal to you the steps they took in creating NAFTA to GATT, the consequences of that plus the friendly World Bank. We also get to here some entertaining bits about Jello's (his real name is Eric, stage name Jello Biafra) childhood and the reaction to JFK.

Essentially, this is mainly for DK fans and punk rockers. If you aren't a punk rocker you might like this if you are in the Howard Zinn / Noam Chomsky camp.

Be aware of some swearing here and there and typical punk rock humor along the way lol. Just a warning.
