Watch Jello Biafra fronting Spindrift’s Western psych jams

Spindrift: Classic SoundtracksSpindrift: Classic Soundtracks Vol. 1 (Xemu, 5/10/11)

Western-influenced psych-rock band Spindrift has been on the road for a quasi-eternity, including a ghost-town tour last year, to bring its cinematic, reverberated tunes to a town near you.

The band already is back on the road, but its final stop last month was at San Francisco’s Brick & Mortar Music Hall, where former Dead Kennedys vocalist (and former presidential candidate) Jello Biafra got on stage for a pair of songs. Biafra’s dramatic vibratos and half-spoken delivery are a surprisingly great fit.

The performance also marked the final show for band member Sasha Vallely, who is taking a break from touring. Head here to see the band’s current tour dates, which last for another four weeks.
