Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra did a pretty interesting/entertaining interview with some French (I think) media company in which he answers a bunch of pretty random questions.  Most interesting, in my opinion, were his thoughts on the state of the punk scene today, his feuding and getting sued by his own bandmates and his reasons for keeping Alternative Tentacles alive.  Check out the entire thing below.

Dead Kennedys released their last studio album “Bedtime for Democracy” in 1986 on Alternative Tentacles, shortly after their split with Jello.  Since parting Dead Kennedys, Jello has formed a new band called Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo Bay School of Medicine.  The rest of the band continues to perform as Dead Kennedys but with a new singer (Skip McSkipster).

Garage/horror punks Death Hymn Number 9 have a new album, 3rd Degree Moon Burns, out now on Alternative Tentacles.

Jello Biafra squashes rumors of reunion with Dead Kennedys

Posted by Screeching Bottlerocket on Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 12:57 PM (PST)

In a recent interview, Jello Biafra addressed the rumors of a possible reunion between him and Dead Kennedys that have been floating around the internet for the past couple of months, stating the following:

“Ray just spat out a bald faced lie, like a reunion was about to happen. [...] The whole way they’ve dumbed down Dead Kennedys into one big cash scam [...] I don’t want any part of that. I’m not a “retro guy,” anyway. I’ve worked really hard to set myself up so I’ve never had to be. If they’re willing to undo every last bit of damage they’ve done, maybe we’ll talk.

I’m kind of cynical about a lot of reunions, anyway. I don’t want to re-form a band for the wrong reasons, because people are going to smell that from the stage, just like I do as a fan, and then I want no part of it.”

Well, that’s that, I guess!

Dead Kennedys released their last studio album “Bedtime for Democracy” in 1986 on Alternative Tentacles, shortly after their split with Jello.  Since parting Dead Kennedys, Jello has formed a new band called Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo Bay School of Medicine.  The rest of the band continues to perform as Dead Kennedys but with a new singer (Skip McSkipster).
