History

Legal trouble

In 1988, a police officer in Nepean, Ontario, instigated a criminal investigation of the Dayglos after his daughter brought home a copy of Here Today, Guano Tomorrow Obscenity charges were laid against the Dayglo Abortion’s record label, Fringe Product, carried by Alternative Tentacles in the US and embroiling Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra in the battle for freedom of speech and the label's record store, Record Peddler, but those charges were cleared in 1990[4]

Two albums featured in the resulting trial, the covers and the lyrical content being showcased by the prosecution Here Today, Guano Tomorrow had a cover showing a picture of a hamster eating from a box of chocolates on nice satin sheets, along with a glass of wine, while a hand points a gun at the hamster; the back cover shows a depiction of the resulting carnage The band's previous album, Feed Us a Fetus, was perhaps a little less graphic, with a depiction of a baked fetus on the table in front of Ronald and Nancy Reagan

Politics

On their 2004 album, the Dayglos showed a new-found political awareness Holy Shiite has song titles such as "America Eats Her Young", "Christina Bin Laden", "Scientology", and "Where's Bin Laden"
