Let Them Eat Jellybeans

Let Them Eat Jellybeans, "17 Extracts From Americas Darker Side" sees the light of day with a great cross section of some of the bands coming out of the U.S. at the time.
One of my favourite compilation albums from the era well worth a listen if you can get a hold of it.
This album will most likely never be re-released due to licensing issues and a falling out between Jello Biafra and one of the acts on the album. (if you have a look around on the net you can find info on exactly what the falling out was... so happy surfing)
