about

It's the awe-inspiring collaboration from Jello you've been waiting for!

The band also features Ralph Spight (Victims Family, Freak Accident, Hellworms), Jon Weiss (Sharkbait, Horsey), Billy Gould (Faith No More), & Kimo Ball (Freak Accident, Carneyball Johnson, Mol Triffid, Griddle).

All of the art is by Shepard Fairey!

"Biafra's extremely unique musical vocabulary is firing on all cylinders here, and his backing band, the Guantanamo School Of Medicine (most notably featuring Billy Gould of Faith No More) blasts through nine songs with an intensity that is nonexistent on a lot of newer hardcore-punk records, making songs like "Clean As A Thistle" highly enjoyable, regardless of the outdated lyrical content. When Biafra tackles current issues on the anti-consumerist "Strength Thru Shopping" and the cow-punk/metal anthem "I Won't Give Up", he occasionally spits out couplets like, "We stopped Vietnam, got civil rights and new deals 'cause we kept a blowtorch up their ass," that make the listener feel genuinely empowered and ready to rise up and fight the hypocrisy that lies ahead of us."
- Alternative Press

"I have said it before, and I'll say it again, as loud as I can, Jello Biafra has been more accurate than that Nostradomos fellow. And a lot smarter, too. That being said, his new album, "The Audacity Of Hype" is nothing short of amazing. I like this album, a lot. In fact, I love it. He went back to his "Dead Kennedys" roots with his new band, "The Guantanamo School Of Medicine" and the result is an album almost as great as "Plastic Surgery Disasters," my favorite DKs album. The music here is surfy/creepy/heavy, and the lyrics are dead on. The tune, "Electronic Plantation," is so cool, so original, and so right on. The whole album does not preach to the converted as later DK albums and spoken word albums and Lard did. It brings up NEW ideas that are so fucking smart. Right on, Jello! I'd have to say this IS the best Punk Rock album on the new century. Fast, Furious, and super funny and sick and clever. Get this. Now. 2. It's worth repeating. Get the new Jello Biafra album."
