MDC (Millions of Dead Cops) is an anarcho punk rock band formed in Austin, Texas in 1979. The band was subsequently based in San Francisco, California, and are currently based in Portland, Oregon. Originally formed as "The Stains" before changing their name, the band also changed their name to a different initialism of MDC with every new record released. They play fast hardcore music espousing far-left sociopolitical ideals with singer Dave Dictor expressing his animal rights, anarchist, anti-state and anti-capitalist convictions. MDC eventually released material through ex-Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra's independent label "Alternative Tentacles Records". In the 1990s, Dictor published editorials for the internationally distributed fanzine "Maximumrocknroll". MDC's initial run ended in 1995 and the band spent 5 years on hiatus before Dictor returned in 2000 with new band members. The album includes the famous song "John Wayne was a nazi", which took many legal problems to MDC. MASTERPIECE

Live record - messy, but not too messy! A nice addition to any fine punk collection. Has about twenty tracks including a couple of Michelle Shocked tunes (apparently MDC played on one of her records, too, but I haven't heard it), but not enough good stage patter for my discerning ears. I mean, there's the bit where Dave cusses out a guy for getting mad at the slamdancers around him, but that's about it. I wish they talked more about what it's like to be in a punk band and what kind of dog they really like. Probably a Weimeraner or Yellow Lab. Those are cute. So are Dalmations, but they tend to get really fat, for some reason. Like homeless people. Bastard lazy pieces of duodenum brown!!!!

Perhaps this is the most unknown and forgotten MDC album. In fact when it was hardly anyone realized. I myself bought this CD in 2000 and after I realized that was recorded in 1993. Frankly does not matter much if the disc was very popular or not , and that popularity does not always indicate that something is good or bad. I've heard it many times over 10 years and came to the conclusion that it is a good album , but it can not compare to the debut "Millions of Dead Cops" nor with the third album "Millions of Damn Christians". I think that these 2 albums are the best in the MDC discography, no doubt. But we stand before these three initials MDC and always mean quality music and a deep political and social background. As a small comment that all tracks are accompanied by a psychedelic keyboards, somewhat reminiscent to The Damned goth era or obviously to the sixties garage-rock bands. Besides keyboards, the rest of the record , the 90% , is still pure and total hardcore punk as ever.

One of the best but the best MDC live recording ever. Originally made in Berlin 1988, it was issued by "Destiny Records" and re-issued in 2016 through record label "Beer City Records" own of DRI guys. Excellent quality sound and also excellent songs collection with the best of MDC until 1988.
