Alternative Tentacles emerged in June of 1979 as the label name on Dead Kennedys' self-produced debut single California Uber Alles. The name lived on as a European label promoting singles from then-unknown North American bands like D.O.A., Bad Brains, Black Flag, Flipper, TSOL, Voice Farm and the Let Them Eat Jellybeans compilation. As attention in the US underground grew Alternative Tentacles went domestic with releases from Dead Kennedys, frontman (and label head) Jello Biafra, Butthole Surfers, D.O.A., 7 Seconds, NoMeansNo and others. The label later saw releases from street singer Wesley Willis, incarcerated journalist Mumia Abu Jamal and punk band Fleshies. In 2002 Alternative Tentacles moved from San Francisco to Emeryville California and has thrived as a label and mailorder company offering counterculture music and literature.
