about

The SHOCK-U-PY! EP includes the exclusive non-album song "Barackstar O'Bummer" plus Biafra's remix of "We Occupy" a song for the uprising Jello guested on with D.O.A. "We both go way back in the direct action side of things so I'm honored Joe Keithley asked me to sing on this song."

"Occupy may be out of the corporate news machine right now" says Biafra, "but that hardly means that it's gone away and it won't go away until the problems go away. To me it's a reigniting of the anti-corporate 'spirit of Seattle' but this time it's bigger because times are more severe."

The Guantanamo School of Medicine will be touring worldwide to support the SHOCK-U-PY! EP as well as their forthcoming full-shebang album, White People and the Damage Done. The EP is the first recording to feature Andrew Weiss on bass (Ween, Rollins Band, Butthole Surfers) and the powerhouse drums of Paul Della Pelle (from Philadelphia HC legends Ruin, Helios Creed, Nik Turner's Space Ritual) The rest of the Guantanamo School of Medicine are the familiar faces of Mr. Biafra on vocals and tuneage; Ralph Spight (Victims Family, Hellworms) guitars, vocals, keyboards; and Kimo Ball still more guitars.
