Description: The first collection of the extraordinary written work of Jello Biafra, one of the founders of the spoken word performance and lyricist and singer for the legendary punk band Dead Kennedys, whom The Washington Post called "the most vocal and subversive of American rockers".

Since the demise of Dead Kennedys, Biafra performs without a band, reading and talking to packed houses across the country. Biafra's shows helped to create the spoken word performance genre, and his performances remain Unmatched. Burning Down the Magic Kingdom includes over fifty of the finest of those performances, rewritten again for publication. His commentaries focus on contemporary politics, music culture and censorship.

Biafra's prosecution by the city of Los Angeles marked the first time a rock band was prosecuted for distributing material harmful to minors. Such brushes with the law have made Biafra among the most outspoken foes of censorship. Readers will find the stories of the LAPD smashing down his door in search of dangerous and illegal as well as glimpses into the more mundane parts of Biafrahood.
