[Jello Biafra:] Another group of monster teenagers shot up their school today. What makes them do it? Video games? Marilyn Manson? Oh, it can't be the parents, or the fact that school sucks, or that the jocks do get patted on the head every time they beat up the weirdos and the jobs you get once you graduate from school are stupid, boring, meaningless, and a dead-end to insanity! [JS Clayden:] I can't deny it's killing me No one loses on TV I can't deny it's killing me No one loses on TV On TV On TV On TV [Jello Biafra:] When Sport Utility Vehicles are no longer enough... you need The Terminator. Stuck in traffic in Lost Angeles? Drive over the tops of everybody else. You'll crush 'em before the cops can catch up with you. Your precious artefact child needs to be safe. They're talking to a kid whose skin is a different colour? Grab the kid and mow 'em down! [JS Clayden:] I can't deny it's killing me No one loses on TV I can't deny it's killing me No one loses on TV On TV On TV On TV [Jello Biafra:] Each new, hot generation has a statement they wanna call their own. Tattoos? Piercings? That's for Moms and Dads. What you wanna do is spend your allowance on devil horn implant, Elephant Man head, designer tails, third leg, fourth leg - everyone a hermaphradite! [JS Clayden:] No one loses on TV On TV On TV On TV No one loses on TV On TV On TV On TV No one loses on TV [Jello Biafra:] And on a lighter note...

about

The original 1999 "Deviant" demos from the band's personal collection. This is the demo in its untouched form. As such, it is not mixed or mastered, and features no guest vocals (sections of songs are blank where guest vocalists would later go on to feature).

This release includes the following digital bonus items:

* Faceless family concept cover art work in progress
* Thankstaking concept cover art work in progress
* Woman and baby concept cover art work in progress
* Original Rat Bastard full-release comic art

This release is a window into the band's process before going to the larger studio, with an engineer and producer. You can see what the band were able to achieve in their personal studio in demo form, and how the songs changed (or not) in comparison to their final form.

The mock original cover was created by vocalist, JS Clayden, as an extension of the concept of the distorted nuclear family originally debuted on the band's ".com" album; however, the record label feared legal reprisals for the use. And so, in defiance, the band commissioned a second cover by Artist William George as a parody-infused distortion of Norman Rockwell's "Thanksgiving." naturally, the record label freaked out even more over that version and refused to release it.

In a final attempt at something radical that would see the light of day, JS Clayden brokered a deal with Gee Vaucher (she of Crass art fame) to utilize her Pope/Queen image, colorized by NY graphic designer Howard Forbes. This version was approved and was ultimately released as the album's cover.

The original painting by William George was never furnished to the band (aren't record labels wonderful?) and Mr. George sadly died in 2017. And so, that artwork is probably lost to posterity--except for the low-resolution digital version included in this demo release.
