DEAD KENNEDYS – In God We Trust, Inc.: The Lost Tapes

I was living in Sydney Australia when In God We Trust came out – we could not believe that a band could play that fast – turns out we were right – this amazing documentary shows that they actually sped up the recordings! This is crucial viewing for any Dead Kennedys fan

Released in July 2003. The session was filmed in June 1981 by Eric Goodfield for a part of a punk documentary he was making. When the DKs went to master the tape it started to peel and deteriorate, so they had to record it again (that session took place in August and was used for the EP). The tape was in Goodfield’s collection until the DKs asked him if he would release the video as part of their 25th anniversary. It includes live versions of all the songs except “Hyperactive Child”, for which no live footage could be found.

Studio Versions:

Hyperactive Child
Nazi Punks Fuck Off
