Dead Kennedys – Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (2022 Mix)
Weekly Review:
The photo on the cover of “Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables,” the 1980 debut album by the American punk rock band The Dead Kennedys, is of a burning police car taken during the White Night riots of May 21, 1979.
The riots resulted from the light sentence given to former San Francisco City Supervisor Dan White for the murder of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. White’s lenient voluntary manslaughter sentencing set off the most violent reaction by the American gay community since the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City.
Subtlety is not typically a quality that comes to mind when it comes to describing a band like the Dead Kennedys. But details like the story behind this iconic cover convey the depth and dedication DK had to political protest and the counter culture (certainly more than most of their obnoxious, beer swigging contemporaries). Not that there’s anything g wrong with a little beer swigging obnoxiousness now and then.
Upon entering my rebellious teens, in the early eighties, my perceptions of what was leftover of the 60’s revolution were of either square yuppies or leisure suit wearing  coke-heads that spent their time cruising discos.
My generation needed its own protest music. Something that reflected the sarcasm of our boring, privileged upbringing but also  grab the attention of our condescending, neglectful parents. No band did that better than the Dead Kennedys.
Their name alone sent shivers throughout all Baby Boomers. Ironic song titles like Kill The Poor, Holiday In Cambodia, and I Kill Children served as code for a generation searching for truth in a world seemingly constructed out of bullshit and lies.  What a better way to combat the futility of western culture than an unfiltered reflection at twice the speed and volume?!
A newly remixed vision of “Fresh Fruit…” by legendary engineer Chris Lord- Alge has just been released. The album sounds amazing and includes a poster and totally new eight page booklet. Do yourself a favor and go buy this fucking record! – Major Matt

Katy Guillen and the Drive – Another One Gained

Weekly Review:

After six successful years as Katy Guillen and the Girls, Guillen and Girls drummer Stephanie Williams
have quietly shifted gears into Katy Guillen and the Drive. The duo released an EP in 2020, just before
the pandemic shutdown, and another EP at the end of 2021. Now, they present a full-length offering,
Another One Gained.
While the Girls performed on the bedrock of blues, the Drive have a more expansive sound. There’s a
rootsy feel to their rock and roll that is anchored in dusty rural backroads and set loose into a cloudless
prairie sky. Ironically, Another One Gained is Guillen’s first album not produced in her native Kansas City,
Mo. The pair traveled to Los Angeles record and work with producer Kevin Ratterman, who has worked
with My Morning Jacket, Heartless Bastards and Ray LaMontagne.
Writing these 10 songs was obviously cathartic for Guillen, who develops chord structures and lyrics and
takes them to Williams to fine-tune together. The album mourns old relationships while celebrating the
freedom of new opportunities. Guillen grapples with self-doubt and grief but ultimately throws her
heart into an opportunity for rebirth.
While the bluesy instincts of the Girls appear from time to time, the Drive are distinct entity that
hopefully have a long road in front of them. -Joel Francis

Tyler Childers – Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?

Weekly Review:

Country singer/songwriter Tyler Childers has found a way to have his cake, eat it, then eat it again on his
fifth album, Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven? The triple LP set presents the same eight songs three
different ways.
The first album – Hallelujah – was recorded live, while the second platter – Jubilee – adds overdubs to
the live versions. Joyful Noise finds the material remixed and recontextualized.
Backed by a six-piece band dubbed The Food Stamps, Childers aims to take more than his hounds to
heaven. These are gospel recordings, but thanks to Chase Lewis’ big B3 organ the sound is closer to The

Band than the Louvin Brothers. The set opens with Hank Williams’ “The Old Country Church” then
swings into the title song. Later, Childers revisits his 2017 song “Purgatory.”
These passionate performances preach without being preachy, lifting up the listener by implying but
invoking the almighty. It’s a nifty trick that mainstream preachers and gospel performers might want to
try sometime.
The differences between the Hallelujah and Jubilee versions are often subtle and only sometimes
interesting. The New Orleans horn section on “Way of the Triune God” is one of Jubilee’s best moments.
The string arrangement on “Heart You’ve Been Tendin’” elevates the performance. Two songs – “Two
Coats” and “Jubilee” – go from instrumentals on Hallelujah to vocal numbers on Jubilee. Having two
versions of each song doesn’t add anything to the experience and deciding between the first two albums
ultimately feels like a coin toss.
The Joyful Noise disc, however, is an interesting alternate path through this material. Sections of each
song are sampled and looped with drum machines, snippets of session dialogue, sermons and
conversation from The Andy Griffith Show. While these versions aren’t essential, they are entertaining
and represent the tradition of experimental third platters on triple-album sets, from the long jams on
George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass to the dub versions on the Clash’s Sandinista. -Joel Francis

Wilco – Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (11-LP + 1 CD Super Deluxe Edition, Boxed Set, With CD)
Wilco – Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (2022 Remaster) (White Colored Vinyl, Indie Exclusive, Remastered)

Weekly Review:

Arriving after the band’s poppy Mellotron masterpiece Summerteeth and a pair of albums putting new
music to lost Woody Guthrie lyrics with British folkster Billy Bragg, Wilco’s fourth album could have gone
any number of directions. An exhaustive new 11-LP box set chases down all of the rabbit holes in
chronicling how Yankee Hotel Foxtrot came to be.
The first two LPs – a newly remastered version of the classic, 20-year-old album – will be very familiar to
anyone willing to pony up for this behemoth. Thankfully, this is also available as a stand-alone release
for newer or more budget-conscious fans.
Four double-LP collections sort nearly 60 outtakes, demos and alternate versions into thematic sets.
American Aquarium bears the fingerprints of Summerteeth. The material on Here Comes Everybody and
The Unified Theory of Everything is a bit more abrasive, while Lonely in the Deep End is a clearinghouse
of ideas and sketches. These collections are sequenced similarly, so you can hear how songs and ideas
grow (especially when played consecutively).
What’s more another three LPs capture a complete 2002 concert in St. Louis, allowing the listener to
hear how the wizardry of the studio translated to the stage. The Yankee Hotel Foxtrot tour was the only
one to feature multi-instrumentalist Leroy Bach and the first for drummer Glenn Kotche. After this tour,
the band coalesced around the lineup that has been around for the past couple decades. While the
setlist is very heavy on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, the performance also looks back at several older numbers
and looks ahead with concert closer “I’m a Wheel,” which would appear on the band’s next album.
Finally, a CD of a 2001 interview and performance on Chicago Public Radio recorded a week after the
9/11 attacks and more than half a year before YHF became available in physical format shows that how
quickly the album’s mythology started unraveling and spinning away from the band.
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot has been thoroughly documented, both at the time and after the fact. Fans who
have poured over the books, documentary and online think-pieces will never run out of new stones to
overturn with this massive, exhaustive collection.
The less imposing remastered reissue of the original album should be in every serious contemporary
music fan’s library. -Joel Francis
