Dead Kennedys Milking The Sacred Cow
The collection will enable fans to have both a hard copy as well as a digital copy of their favorite DK tunes at an affordable price. The collection features the top ten DK's downloaded songs plus two previously unreleased live tracks, "Kill the Poor" and "Viva Las Vegas" from Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. Milking the Sacred Cow will be available online and in stores on October 9, 2007 via Manifesto Records.
As brick and mortal retail record stores continue to shrink in a changing marketplace, it is becoming more difficult for fans to find their favorite band's music in shops on CD. Fewer retail outlets equal less shelf space for all music titles so oftentimes a band's full catalogue isn't stocked. Bearing this in mind, Milking the Sacred Cow provides an excellent and affordable solution for fans both new and old.
Dead Kennedys have been called "one of the most popular and important American hardcore punk bands of the late seventies/early eighties" by the Rough Guide to Rock. Spin Magazine named the band's Special 25th Anniversary Edition of Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables one of the Top 10 reissues of 2005, alongside other icons including Bob Dylan, RUN-D.M.C., Ray Charles and the Kinks. Over the years, the band's catalogue has sold nearly two million units.
