A young Jerry Brown on the cover of the DK's classic single
Looking back it seems that Brown's 1975-83 governorships were pretty progressive (opposition to the death penalty, green policies, appointment of openly gay judges) so Biafra's hostility looks a bit baffling. OK, Biafra was a lot closer to it all than me, but I get the feeling he was maybe just enjoying whipping up a bit of anger amongst the Californian punks.
Meanwhile I see that, bizarrely enough, Brown had a high-profile relationship with Linda Ronstadt at the time of California Uber Alles, so one can only assume that the DK's real target was this sell-out politician who was going out with a MOR country singer. It all makes sense now.
