Label Review. 

Official release of three live performances. Paradiso in Amsterdam 1982, Alabama Halle in Munich 1982 and The Farm in San Francisco 1985. Also available on CD. 

Our Overview.

In 1979, one of the definite punk rock bands of the period, the Dead Kennedys released their first single, “California Uber Alles,” which started a punk rock revolution in San Francisco and means that 2019 is the 40th Anniversary year of this legendary pioneering punk band.

In April, Manifesto Records released DK40, a 3CD set of 3 legendary Dead Kennedys performances; Paradiso in Amsterdam 1982, Alabama Halle in Munich 1982 and The Farm in San Francisco 1985. By popular demand, Manifesto will release DK40 on vinyl!

This 4 LP Box Set was re-mastered for vinyl and comes in high quality packaging in a beautiful box and amazing album artwork. The Dead Kennedys were and still are one of the most influential bands in the history of punk rock and were definitely one of the leaders in the “Punk Rock Evolution.” Their lyrics were political in nature, anti-establishment and anti-authority and they always took a stance for First Amendment Rights.

The Dead Kennedys live shows were legendary, high energy and powerful and that power is evident in the 3 performances included in “DK40,” which features all of their classic songs, including “Holiday In Cambodia.” It had been 15 years since a Dead Kennedys release, but the 40th Anniversary campaign has been a huge success and the best was definitely saved for last with this epic 4LP Box Set.

4 LP Set contains 3 often bootlegged, but never released legendary shows. Tapes have been digitally re-mastered for vinyl, providing highest sound quality.

4 LP Set comes in a beautiful high quality box with amazing album artwork.
