Jello Biafra Trolls Trump

 

At a time when aging punks don’t always turn to be what they were pretending to be decades ago – have you looked at John Lydon’s red shirt lately? – Jello Biafra stays true to his ‘Nazi Punks Fuck Off’ himself. These days, he is wearing a ‘Trump Hates Me’ shirt, and continues to be outspoken, while Jello Biafra and The Guantanamo School of Medicine have dropped a new video for their song ‘Tea Party Revenge Porn,’ the title track from their upcoming album, out this fall on Alternative Tentacles Records.

Directed by Ani Kyd, the video is mocking every single aspect of the current political climate, engulfing old and new US conspiracies and lunacies, from the Illuminati, 9/11 truthers, flat earthers, NRA gun nuts (a lot of them and that’s the best part), white supremacists and other KKK maniacs, the Koch family and Michele Bachmann, while Jello Biafra trolls Trump over and over in the middle of this giant collage of our last crazy decade. It’s a 5-minute sarcasm with Trump-inspired lyrics… ‘Someone has to stand up for the stupid, goddammit! America first! Grab our whole country by the pussy, with our red, white and blue brownshirts’

I didn’t think the Tea Party was still a thing, but the video covers a lot in just a few minutes, basically an entire decade of insanity, culminating with the present situation. Nevertheless, it’s still a bit weird to see this retro madness mixed with the current hysteria. How could Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin (who hasn’t been in the news for a very long time) be still relevant when we have the QAnon people? But maybe Jello Biafra and The Guantanamo School of Medicine want to tell us that these people have paved the way for the mess we are in.

From Jim Crow America to gun America, Biafra delivers with his legendary in-your-face high-pitched screaming growl over loud guitar assaults, a blistering style, and scorching/soaring chorus. This is the fourth track to be released from the upcoming album, following the other provocative songs titled Taliban USAWe Created Putin and The Last Big Gulp. And while waiting for the entire thing, you can always check out some of these ‘What Would Jello Do? videos on Alternative Tentacle’s YouTube channel.

‘Tormenting the stupid since 1979’ … ‘Making America think again since 1979,’ you can read on the label website, it’s certainly difficult to remain relevant after 40 years of punk, but you can become some old trash wearing MAGA apparel like Lydon, or continue to be an agitator like Biafra.
