Six photos of M.D.C. (aka Millions of Dead Cops, Millions of Dead Children, Multi-Death Corporations) performing at Ajz in Bielefeld and the Live Station in Dortmund, Germany in 1987. The photos, which focus mainly on singer Dave Dictor, were taken for a German zine whose name has, unfortunately, been lost to time. All are very good with light bumping to a few corners. M.D.C., a far-left hardcore band, originated in Austin, before relocating to San Francisco, and finally to Portland. Fast and aggressive, the band remains active, including their 2016 remake of “Born to Die:” “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA.” While the band’s various names and album graphics are terrifying to the average non-initiate, these shock tactics offered an attention-grabbing way to broadcast their anti-authoritarian and leftist message. After all, as Greil Marcus puts it, “to make true political music, you have to say what decent people don’t want to hear.”
