"On November 11th, 2002, Jello Biafra releases his 7th spoken word album: "Machine Gun In The Clown's Hand" (Virus 290) as a 3xLP & 3xCD. Everyone who hears this will agree this is one of his finest and most entertaining releases ever. It contains material recorded during his spoken word performances over the past year, including up-to-the-minute dialog regarding the situation in Iraq. Probably his funniest release to date, where he busts out impersonations - from world leaders to his high school geometry teacher. Yet, humor aside, it is one of his most stirring and emotional albums. Jello talks about the Mid-East crisis, The War On Terrorism, Voting, Joey Ramone, Corporate Controlled Mass Media, Geneticaly Modified Food, Corporate Feudalism, Patriotism, The Energy Crisis, Dead Kennedys, Civil Liberties, George Bush I & George Bush II, The Spirit Of Seattle, more dirt on Florida, Darryl Cherney & Judi Bari, War Veterans…

Oh and wait until you see the cover image and the back-cover image. Artwork dreamt about by Jello and executed by world-class poster artist, Chuck Sperry; with his trademarked collage insert created by Chris Shaw. You'll probably want to get the LP version too - even if you don't have a turntable - just so you can have a larger version of the artwork."
