Hey, Hey, Another DK's fan here. I saw them live at Fesival Hall (Brisbane) here in Australia. Must have been about '84 or '85. Awesome show! I was
just barely in my teens. Have to say it was the best concert I have seen, bar none. I've also seen Jello a couple of times doing his spoken word.
I've pretty much listened to 'em right through to the present. The first album I bought was 'Plastic Surgery Disasters' and it simply blew me
away. The great thing about the DK's is that they don't date. 5ick8oy is right in saying that their message is just as relevant today as it was 25
(Man, has it been that long?) years ago.
Favourite tracks are: 'Halloween', 'I am the Owl', 'Forest Fire', 'Kepone Factory', 'Let's Lynch the Landlord', 'Man With the Dogs',
'Stealing Peoples Mail', and 'Stars and Stripes of Corruption'.
'Tis a real shame about the current ill-will between Jello and the rest of the band. But Jeeez! Could you imagine listening to 'Holiday in
Cambodia' on a Dockers ad?
I must also say; People!!! Do Not
buy anything DK's out on the Decay label. Look for the Alternative Tentacles stuff at online sellers or
rarity stores. Jello got screwed by his own band!
