JELLO BIAFRA WITH THE MELVINS: Never Breathe What You Can’t See: CD

Nov 15, 2006

As far as I’m concerned, this CD blows all of Jello’s spoken word albums, Lard, Jello with DOA, Jello with Mojo Nixon, and the No WTO Combo OUT OF THE FUCKING WATER. This is the best Jello material since the Bedtime for Democracy LP was released. My goodness, if “Islamic Bomb” isn’t the song of the year, I don’t know what is. The Melvins rock out eight tunes of punk/metal mayhem like it’s no one’s business and Jello gets right to the point of his annoyances with the world. Oh yeah, and it looks like gang vocals include the talents of Jesse Luscious, Johnny Fleshies, Wendy-O-Matik, and John the Baker among others. Great artwork, great music, and great lyrics: what more could you want from a perfect record?
