Dead Kennedys Announce Remix/Reissue of 'Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables'

 Seminal California punk band Dead Kennedy's have announced a 40th anniversary reissue of their 1980 debut album Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables. This version has been remixed from the original tapes by acclaimed engineer Chris Lord-Alge, and will include previously unseen images, as well as essays from Billie Joe Armstrong, Dave Grohl and more. 
 In a statement, Dead Kennedy's guitarist East Bay Ray shared “When the label suggested we remix Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables [bassist] Klaus Fluoride and I were skeptical, but we thought, ‘Why not? Let’s give it a try.’ And, wow, Grammy-winning maestro Chris Lord-Alge was interested! It turns out he’s a big fan of the band. We tried one song, ‘Chemical Warfare.’ What Chris came back with was amazing. Everyone heard the difference, so we said, ‘All right, let’s go!’”
 Lord-Alge added: “Revisiting Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables was such an inside peek at a band packing so much excitement onto tape for every song. The style and playing has such drive and spirit. The big challenge for me was keeping it honest to its original sound and not letting it become modern but improving the separation and clarity. A major chapter in history for Dead Kennedys.”
 The reissue is due September 30th via Manifesto.
