‘MTSB’ is about an alternate reality, where things can be felt, heard and seen, though only understood with a shift of consciousness into another dimension. “It was inspired by the idea of a parallel reality not too dissimilar to our own”, explains lead singer Eugene Gaine, adding that, “It’s a world not easily accessed, with strange subtle differences that make it both familiar and otherworldly.” Once in the studio the four brothers “were able to create a dreamlike sound that ultimately inspired the lyrics” by playing around with odd chord progressions, synthesizers, delay and reverb pedals, and a drum machine pattern created “on a Yamaha electone organ that we bought for £3.50,” admits Eugene.

DEAD KENNEDYS deliver fresher “Fruit”… Classic album remixed by Chris Lord-Alge

Dead Kennedys’ classic 1980 album Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables has been remixed from the original multitrack tapes by Chris Lord-Alge (Chaka Khan, Green Day, Bruce Springsteen). The band’s debut album (original release date: September 2, 1980) is politically incendiary while also wholly musically adept – provocative and often idiosyncratic agit prop lyrics bouncing off of careening, adrenaline-infused musicianship. So it’s only natural that the 40th anniversary re-release of this classic album is revisited by the GRAMMY winning mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge. Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables – 2022 Mix will be available September 30, 2022 via Manifesto Records and available for pre-sale.
