I would agree that the Dead Kennedys are one of the greatest punk bands, but just off topic. I bought a dead kennedys dvd about 1 month ago which included live footage of jello biafra, and and their first drummer from 81' to 83'. I would have to say that my view on the dead kennedys has changed after seeing them play live. Their music (i have most of their cd's, mentionables would be plastic surgery disasters, in god we trust, fresh fruit for rotten vegetable etc.) is very energetic, loud and somewhat dark, and has that edge. I dont know what i thought there live performances were like before i saw this dvd, but jello biafra is definitly a weird guy. I wont let this change my view on there music, which i love, but just watching jello biafra live and doing weird things with plastic gloves and trying to dance around, almost trying to liquid at times, just kinda made me think this guys kinda weird. His lyrics are definitly different and questionable at times, sometimes even going over my head with his off the wall political analogies and thoughts, but i kinda liked that. i dont know where i'm going with this post, but my view on jello biafra has changed, not sure if its a positive or negative thing yet, but it has changed. i heard he's coming soon to do one of his 'speeches' that he's well known for, whihc i might check out, just to get a glimpse of this guy...maybe he's not so weird 20 years later...?
