There's nothing as pure as a punk from SF, Klaus...

Give the guy some breathing room long after his moment's been over.

Zappa said it best: Composers compose the music. Musicians play the music composers write for them.

When the DK played SLC in around '85, Jello took the stage in a Donnie and Marie t-shirt. Hilarious. Of course, when he stripped it off, he had his chest/belly hair shaved in the shape of an upside down cross.

I caught him when he dove off the stage...good times. Ha ha.

Don't want to crush the fun but I think everyone here would have no problem in the company of Jello B, slogging snow in the Sun.

We all get put out to pasture eventually and find something "rad" that may not be current.

The boy was great live, as me and some friends experienced in the dark ages of modern culture. He's allowed to take up fishing...

About that time:

QITNL,

Yer right but everyone knows politics are boring when you gotta face work at 7am Monday morning.

Jello helped you feel free and smart after drinking beer on a Friday after work!

Jello's sister died climbing. Interesting to see him climbing something. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jello_Biafra
Saw him a couple of years ago in the Rainbow Market in SF full on talking to himself. Personally I lost a lot of respect for him when he was sued by the other members of Dead Kennedy's (among other bands such as Neurosis)for not paying them their royalties. He no longer has the Dead Kennedy's and many other groups catalog on Alternative Tentacles. hence the above list of former bands on the label.

Hey more power to him!

Funny this thread brought back a memory I had forgotten:

Back in '79/80 I was into punk. Went to my friend's apartment to buy a "nickel" of leaf. When I left I chose a random door and with a fatty black marker, I drew a big DK symbol dead center on the front door.

The next day my friend calls and says the middle eastern family that lived downstairs had come over and complained to his parents about the writing on their door. They had no idea who the Dead Kennedys where so translated the symbol to be an axe and wanted me to lift the "curse" I had placed on them and their family.

I could not stop laughing (I was 14 yo). I never did go back over there so started buying homegrown from someone else.

God I was such an a-hole when I was younger..

This is awesome, funny stories here too. I used to carve DK symbols on my grip tape & everywhere else when I was a little sh#t head.


I'd go clip some bolts with Jello, have a feeling that would be right up his alley. "Give me convenience or give me death" lol, he's down for fixed anchors & rap bolts for sure!

I saw Jello give spoken word in Bozeman in 1986 or so. He took the tickets at the door on account of he was the greeter - totally DIY.

Somewhere along in his spew he was getting heckled by the audience and was totally getting into it Jello-style. Then someone shouted out something funny as hell that totally popped his mojo - he couldn't stop laughing. Finally he stops and asks "Can I use that?". He get a "yes", pulls a scrap of paper out of his pocket and scribbles on it. Then he gets back on his Jello train and all is well in the universe.

I didn't see him skiing at Bridger Bowl the next morning.
