TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Now it is 1984 / Knock-knock at your front door / It’s the suede denim secret police / They have come for your uncool niece

Come quietly to the camp / You’d look nice as a drawstring lamp / Don’t you worry, it’s only a shower / For your clothes, here’s a pretty flower

Die on organic poison gas / Serpent’s egg’s already hatched / You will croak, you little clown / When you mess with President Brown / When you mess with President Brown

California Über Alles / California Über Alles / Über Alles California / Über Alles California

In light of 2021, it’s hard to imagine knocking ex-California “Gov” Jerry Brown. Jello Biafra’s politics have always been absurd, but I cherish the two Dead Kennedys shows I saw upon moving here in the early ’80s. At times I’ve felt the passion and fury of those shows. Tuesday’s recall election brought memories back of that large pack of Nazi skinheads confronting Fishbone (DK’s opener). Mayhem broke loose and all us there (DKs, Goldenvoice, and friends) ran from backstage to stand our ground.

That’s kinda what happened last Tuesday. It’s not like I rant about politics online but…FUCK YOU!!!!


You want to take down our Governor? What, because he’s handsome, smart, and acted intelligently and fast to do the right thing to save lives in our cities? Gavin Newsom is a fucking hero! Yeah, he makes some mistakes. Look we’ve all been affected by the pandemic. I am happy “The Gov” could take a break and have a nice meal a Chez Panisse. He fucking deserves it.

Okay, so this Idelic Hour is a salute to California. Most of the time it’s the coolest place on earth with the coolest people. If you don’t like it, okay well, don’t fuck with us.

By the way, if you wanna see cool California, check this new Goth Babe video. Listen, lighten up, and explore. XO
