DEAD KENNEDYS' Iconic Debut 'Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables' Gets Remix Treatment
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 Lord-Alge.
