About Jello Biafra
Musician Jello Biafra
got his start in music when he was in the San Francisco-based punk band, the Dead Kennedys. One day in 1978, he happened to
come across an advertisement that was recruiting members for a punk band. Biafra responded to the ad and the Dead Kennedys
were formed. The Dead Kennedys later became one of the most popular and influential punk bands around, and they were one of
the first punk bands in the United States to write politically charged lyrics. Biafra has always been outspoken about politics,
and his views shaped the music of the band. By 1979, the Dead Kennedys had their first hit with the satirical song, "California
Uber Alles." In fact, the song was so popular that it was covered by many other musicians, including The Disposable Heroes
of Hiphoprisy and John Linnell of They Might Be Giants. In 1980, the Dead Kennedys followed up their first single with yet
another smash hit, "Holiday in Cambodia," which was from their debut album, "Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables." This song
is considered to be one of the most successful in the hardcore punk genre, and it is a longtime favorite of fans.
his time with the Dead Kennedys, Jello Biafra took over the independent record label called Alternative Tentacles, which had
been used to self-produce the Dead Kennedys' first single. He later began musical collaborations with other artists, in addition
to focusing his time on spoken word poetry. One such collaboration is Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine.
The band released their debut album, "The Audacity of Hype" in October of 2009, which included tracks like "New Feudalism,"
"Electronic Plantation," "Three Strikes," and "Panic Land." The album contained the same politically subversive lyrics that
he became famous for while he was in the Dead Kennedys. Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine followed up with
their next album, "White People and the Damage Done." They have since embarked on various tours, and continue to bring their
political punk rock tunes to venues all over.
