Editorial Reviews

The first of Jello's post-Dead Kennedys collaborations was a barnburner; hooking up with Canada's legendary DOA ensured all the punk power that fans could want would be there in a big way. Even though Joey Keithley and company aren't quite as agile as Jello's ex-bandmates -- everything here is more brutally Motorhead in feel than the nervous aggro and sometimes restraint of the Kennedys -- this album can't be faulted for sheer crunch. Jello himself is in fine voice throughout, tackling his favored targets with the frenetic bile that he's made his own. Some of the songs have become outdated -- "Wish I Was in El Salvador" is very much of the '80s -- but "Attack of the Peacekeepers," memorably tarring NATO's forces as "the joke brigade," has had just as much of a point after Kosovo. "Power Is Boring" captures Jello at his most hilarious, pointing out how being a dictator must really stink (the job security issue alone, for one). Not much on the first side varies from song to song musically -- pounding, chunky feedback that smashes head-on, along with good gang-shout choruses from the band more than once -- but if that's the needed fix, this album provides in spades. The wild card here is a spooky, mid-paced romp through the Animals' "We Gotta Get Outta This Place," with Jello's tremulous vocals suiting the lyrics perfectly and Keithley's backup on chorus fitting in, in its own rough way. The concluding, side-long "Full Metal Jacket" takes absolutely no prisoners, elevating Last Scream from good to great. With Keithley in particular turning in some great guitar work over a steady, snaky rhythm, Jello offers up one of the most bilious, pointed slams against Washington D.C.; this album is as "city/feds-as-corrupt-institution" as you could imagine. Kennedys artist Winston Smith offers up some great cover art to top it all off. ~ Ned Raggett, All Music Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars Jello Biafra's most venomous album May 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Only 6 songs? Who cares? Every one is a winner, especially the 11 minute onslaught that is "Full Metal Jackoff." D.O.A. was a great band and Jello is still going strong, but together, these guys were unreal. Buy this album and play it loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my deset island discs.... December 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
What can be said......If I had to choose five albums to be buried with this would be one of them. It is short, but it gets right to the point. Jello's vocals with DOA's playing is pure magic.
The lyrics are hilarious and they are to the point. If you want to get a good idea of how the true left views things look to Jello. Never will "We gotta get out of this place" mean the same thing as it did in the past.
Full Metal Jackoff is one of the top 10 best songs ever written
Buy this album........you will not regret it....

5.0 out of 5 stars This Was 1 of 2 Albums That Made Me A Punk April 1, 2012
By J. Sink
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In the late 80's in high school I had discovered heavy metal music and for a few years that was my thing. So over Christmas break in 1991, I asked this punk guy in my auto shop class about punk music. He loaned me 2 cassette tapes that opened my eyes. This album was one of them (Mommy's Little Monster the other one).

This album is awesome. Biafra has that... well 'goofy' vocal sound, that he always seems to be able to pull off. Even his later stuff, little goofy on the vocals but somehow it works with the music. This album is different. His vocals are not over the top, they are pretty straight forward and they really work well with this music. I cant really even compare this album with anything else out there. It stands on it's own.

All I can really say about this album is buy it. As a whole, this is the best album with Jello Biafra. I like this one even over any Kennedy albums. This album opened me up to a new genre of music. It will do the same for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jello with DOA - Great Stuff Maynard! August 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I'd heard some Dead Kennedys in the early 1980s, and had bought "Inc God We Trust, Inc." Loved 2-3 of their songs, enjoyed many of the lyrics of the rest of the songs.
When I saw the positive reviews for this 1989 CD, I decided to try it. I bought it last week. The other fans were right, this is a TERRIFIC compact disc. I not only enjoyed the first song and its cadence thoroughly, it was a delight to hear the remake of "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" from The Animals.
Biafra is just as clever and charismatic as ever. He sounds terrific with DOA. At least as good as any old material, maybe even better. In fact, I'm playing it again right now...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard driving, great listen January 13, 2014
By M. Ford
Format:Audio CD
I like Jello, and a few of my favorite songs are by him with the DK, but the match up with DOA hits a different point of greatness and should not be missed by anyone who enjoy's his style of music.
