On this date in 1981: Dead Kennedys released their second single, “Holiday In Cambodia,” backed by “Police Truck.” The A side appeared on their debut album, Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables, though it was different than the single version. This album is still the largest selling punk album in California history; followed closely by the debut from OC punk band, The Adolescents. Coincidently, I’m going to the Bowery Ballroom tonight to see former Adolescents’ bassist Steve Soto’s new band open for X. What goes around comes around.
