The futility of a well ordered life - An Alternative Tentacles Compilation (1994)


You All Know Alternative Tentacles and Jello Biafra of course. It's a famous independent record label, originally based in San Franciso California, and was established in 1979. It was originally used as the label name by the Dead Kennedys for the self-produced single "California Über Alles", and after realizing the potential for an independent label, they released records for other bands as well. Dead Kennedys guitarist East Bay Ray and vocalist Jello Biafra formed the original Alternative Tentacles partnership, but the label is now run by Biafra, who became the sole owner in the mid-1980s.
This is a compilation - catalogue sampler from 1994, including some great bands. Punk is the key - word here in many of its expressions - hardcore punk, industrial punk, postpunk, punk rock. Only the last song is a hip  hop dynamite by Chill EB.
Alternative Tentacles is still alive and kicking.
