Alternative Tentacles

The brainchild of notorious Dead Kennedys rabble-rouser Jello Biafra, Alternative Tentacles is a musical platform for infidels, revolutionaries, wingnuts, activists, mad poets, and aural terrorists -- in short, for everything that Biafra has always stood for. The San Francisco-based label emerged when the Dead Kennedys did -- it was the name on the band's self-produced debut single, "California Uber Alles" -- but Biafra has controlled it since the group's acrimonious split. Not surprisingly, the label's offerings lean towards punk rock, but there's plenty of other stuff in the AT catalogue. The one thing that all AT artists have in common is a tendency to be provocative, innovative, and willfully controversial.
