    Jello Biafra-American Prophet

    "Bleed For Me" (1982)

    You've been hanging 'round
    With an enemy of the state
    Come with me to the building
    That no-one stops to watch

    [Chorus]
    C'mon bleed
    C'mon bleed
    C'mon bleed
    Bleed for me

    We'll strap you to a pipe
    Electrodes on your balls
    C'mon scream
    C'mon writhe
    Face down in a pool of piss

    [Chorus]

    In the name of world peace
    In the name of world profits
    America pumps up our secret police
    America wants fuel
    To get it, it needs puppets
    So what's ten million dead?
    If it's keeping out the Russians

    We're well trained by the CIA
    With Yankee tax money in Ft. Bragg
    The Peace Corps builds US labor camps
    When they think they're building schools

    Ha Ha

    When cowboy Ronnie comes to town
    Forks out his tongue at human rights
    Sit down, enjoy our ethnic meal
    Dine on some charbroiled nuns
    Try a medal on
    Smile at the mirror as the cameras click
    and make big business happy-

    Anytime
    Anywhere
    Maybe you'll just disappear

    I had his Die For Oil monologue on vinyl back in 91.

    "Kinky Sex Makes The World Go 'Round"(1987)

    Greetings:This is the Secretary of War at the State Department
    of the United States
    We have a problem.
    The companies want something done about this sluggish
    world economic situation
    Profits have been running a little thin lately
    and we need to stimulate some growth
    Now we know
    there's an alarmingly high number of young people roaming
    around in your country with nothing to do but stir up trouble
    for the police and damage private property.
    It doesn't look like they'll ever get a job
    It's about time we did something constructive with these people
    We've got thousands of 'em here too. They're crawling all over
    The companies think it's time we all sit down, have a serious get-together-
    And start another war
    The President?
    He loves the idea! All those missiles streaming overhead to and fro
    Napalm
    People running down the road, skin on fire
    The Soviets seem up for it:
    The Kremlin's been itching for the real thing for years.
    Hell, Afghanistan's no fun
    So whadya say?
    We don't even have to win this war.
    We just want to cut down on some of this excess population
    Now look. Just start up a draft; draft as many of those people as you can.
    We'll call up every last youngster we can get our hands on,
    hand 'em some speed, give 'em an hour or two to learn how to use
    an automatic rifle and send 'em on their way
    Libya? El Salvador? How 'bout Northern Ireland?
    Or a "moderately repressive regime" in South America?
    We'll just cook up a good Soviet threat story
    in the Middle East-we need that oil
    We had Libya all ready to go and Colonel Khadafy's hit squad
    didn't even show up. I tell ya
    That man is unreliable.
    The Kremlin had their fingers on the button just like we did for that one
    Now just think for a minute-We can make this war so big-so BIG
    The more people we kill in this war, the more the economy will prosper
    We can get rid of practically everybody on your dole queue if we plan this right.
    Take every loafer on welfare right off our computer rolls
    Now don't worry about demonstrations-just pump up your drug supply.
    So many people have hooked themselves on heroin
    and amphetamines since we took over, it's just like Vietnam.
    We had everybody so busy with LSD they never got too strong.
    Kept the war functioning just fine
    It's easy.
    We've got our college kids so interested in beer
    they don't even care if we start manufacturing germ bombs again.
    Put a nuclear stockpile in their back yard,
    they wouldn't even know what it looked like
    So how 'bout it? Look-War is money.
    The arms manufacturers tell me unless
    we get our bomb factories up to full production
    the whole economy is going to collapse
    The Soviets are in the same boat.
    We all agree the time has come for the big one, so whadya say?!?
    That's excellent. We knew you'd agree
    The companies will be very pleased.

    I love The Dead Kennedy's. Biafra turned into kind of an old grump recently though. He was mighty pissed that they used that actor kid Brandon Cruz as lead singer on a reunion tour instead of him and had his legs broken by skinheads at a show for being a sellout.

    The Die For Oil Sucker ep was released in 91 way before the current conflict. I have nothing but respect for your brother and the other people serving our great country.

    We got a bigger problem now (1981)

    Last call for alcohol.
    Last call for your freedom of speech.
    Drink up. Happy hour is now enforced by law.
    Don't forget our house special, it's called a Trickie Dickie Screwdriver.
    It's got one part Jack Daniels, two parts purple Kool-Aid,
    and a jigger of formaldehyde
    from the jar with Hitler's brain in it we got in the back storeroom.
    Happy trails to you. Happy trails to you.

    I am Emperor Ronald Reagan
    Born again with fascist cravings
    Still, you made me president

    Human rights will soon go 'way
    I am now your Shah today
    Now I command all of you
    Now you're going to pray in school
    I'll make sure they're Christian too

    California Uber alles
    Uber alles California

    Ku Klux Klan will control you
    Still you think it's natural
    Nigger knockin' for the master race
    Still you wear the happy face

    You closed your eyes, can't happen here
    Alexander Haig is near
    Vietnam won't come back you say
    Join the army or you will pay

    California Uber alles
    Uber alles California

    Yeah, that's it. Just relax.
    Have another drink, few more pretzels, little more MSG.
    Turn on those Dallas Cowboys on your TV.
    Lock your doors. Close your mind.
    It's time for the two-minute warning.

    Welcome to 1984
    Are you ready for the third world war?!?
    You too will meet the secret police
    They'll draft you and they'll jail your niece

    You'll go quitely to boot camp
    They'll shoot you dead, make you a man
    Don't you worry, it's for a cause
    Feeding global corporations' claws

    Die on our brand new poison gas
    El Salvador or Afghanistan
    Making money for President Reagan
    And all the friends of President Reagan

    It's Dead Kennedy lyrics. Every cool American teen in the 80's grew up listening to them, The Butthole Surfers, and either Siouxsie and the Banshees or The Cure.

    Cold concrete apartments
    Rise up from wet black asphalt
    Below them a few carcasses
    Of the long gone age of privacy

    It takes a scary kind of illness
    To design a place like this for pay
    Downtown's an endless generic mall
    Of video games and fast food chains

    One by one
    The little houses are bricked up and condemned
    A subtle hint to move
    Before the rats move in

    This could be anywhere
    This could be everywhere
    Those new kids at school seem cool
    But dad says not to talk to them
    Stick to your old friends
    They're not our kind
    So now there's lots of fights

    So many people I know
    Come of age tense and bitter-eyed
    Can't create so they just destroy
    C'mon!
    Let's set someone's dog on fire

    Empty plastic
    Culture slum suburbia
    Is a war zone now
    Sprouting the kinds of gangs
    We thought we'd left behind

    This could be anywhere
    This could be everywhere
    Kids at school are taking sides
    Along color and uniform lines
    My dad's gone and bought a gun
    He says he's fed up
    With crime in this town
    This could be anywhere
    This could be everywhere
    This could be anywhere
    This could be everywhere
    Anywhere
    Everywhere
    I hope I'm gone before it explodes
    I linger late at night
    Waiting for the bus
    No amount of neon jazz
    Could hide the oozing vibes of death
    My dad's a vigilante now
    He's bringing home these weird-ass friends
    Like the guy who fires blanks at his TV
    When Kojak's on
    Or the guy who shows off his submachine gun
    To his sixteen-year-old daughter's friends
    Whose sense of pride and hope
    Is being in the police reserve

    This could be anywhere
    This could be everywhere-Everywhere
    The most dangerous woman of all is the one who refuses to rely on your sword to save her because she carries her own.

    The first punk rock album I ever picked up was Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables WOWOWOW!!! awesome, I quickly turned into a rabid fan. When Jello got sued by the PMRC I sent him all the money I could every week. I never actually meet the guy but Jello and I would right back and forth for a wile. I'd also send him huge ammounts of clippings for his collage art. D.K.s are one of the most important bands in punk rock and deserve more credit than their givin.

    Hi
    I'm your video DJ
    I always talk like I'm wigged out on quaaludes
    I wear a satin baseball jacket everywhere I go
    My job is to help destroy
    What's left of your imagination
    By feeding you endless doses
    Of sugar-coated mindless garbage
    So don't create
    Be sedate
    Be a vegetable at home
    And thwack on that dial
    If we have our way even you will believe
    This is the future of rock and roll
    How far will you go
    How low will you stoop
    To tranquilize our minds with your sugar-coated swill
    You've turned rock and roll rebellion
    Into Pat Boone sedation
    Making sure nothing's left to the imagination
    M.T.V. Get off the
    M.T.V. Get off the
    M.T.V. Get off the air
    Get off the air
    See the latest rejects from the muppet show
    Wag their tits and their dicks
    As they lip-synch on screen
    There's something I don't like
    About a band who always smiles
    Another tax write-off
    For some schmuck who doesn't care
    M.T.V. Get off the air
    And so it was
    Our beloved corporate gods
    Claimed they created rock video
    Allowing it to sink as low in one year
    As commercial TV has in 25
    "It's the new frontier," they say
    It's wide open, anything can happen
    But you've got a lot of nerve
    To call yourself a pioneer
    When you're too god-damn conservative
    To take real chances.
    Tin-eared
    Graph-paper brained accountants
    Instead of music fans
    Call all the shots at giant record companies now
    The lowest common denominator rules
    Forget honesty
    Forget creativity
    The dumbest buy the mostest
    That's the name of the game
    But sales are slumping
    And no one will say why
    Could it be they put out one too many lousy records!
    M.T.V.-Get off the air!
    NOW
    The most dangerous woman of all is the one who refuses to rely on your sword to save her because she carries her own.

    Check out this line up, Jello Biafra, Kim Thayil, Krist Novoselic, Gina Mainwal. Sounds like Dead Kennedys to a T. I just realized that System of a Down rips DK a lot. God I miss that band.

    Jello is working on a new Lard album with Al Jourgensen of Ministry.. supposedly will be released this year, but with Al going on a few tour stops with Revolting Cocks(touring now) I don't think it'll be out this year.

    I havent heard Alan's name in awhile. Is he still a junky? I seen Ministry with Sepultura and Helmet years back and he looked terrible. I felt bad for him. The show was killer though.

    Dead Kennedys are/ were one of, if not THE most important punk band of the 1980's. Like their lyrics or not, but that is a fact.
    I love dead people....

    I love Billy Bragg. Waiting For The Great Leap Forward is brilliant. He just recorded a Clash song with Mick Jones and Topper Headon:

    You know I just thought about the fact that seeing the words Jello Biafra, Billy Bragg and Cambridge in one sentence might make Republican heads explode all over the internet! What if I added the name of the featured speaker at that event Noam Chamsky to the sentence!!!! Worlds could collide!

    It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
    But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
    Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
    Over luxury's disappointment
    So he walks over and he's trying
    To sympathize with her but thinks that he should warn her
    That the Third World is just around the corner
    In the Soviet Union a scientist is blinded
    By the resumption of nuclear testing and he is reminded
    That Dr Robert Oppenheimer's optimism fell
    At the first hurdle
    In the Cheese Pavilion and the only noise I hear
    Is the sound of people stacking chairs
    And mopping up spilt beer
    And someone asking questions and basking in the light
    Of the fifteen fame filled minutes of the fanzine writer
    Mixing Pop and Politics he asks me what the use is
    I offer him embarrassment and my usual excuses
    While looking down the corridor
    Out to where the van is waiting
    I'm looking for the Great Leap Forwards
    Jumble sales are organized and pamphlets have been posted
    Even after closing time there's still parties to be hosted
    You can be active with the activists
    Or sleep in with the sleepers
    While you're waiting for the Great Leap Forwards
    One leap forwards, two leaps back
    Will politics get me the sack?
    Here comes the future and you can't run from it
    If you've got a blacklist I want to be on it
    It's a mighty long way down rock 'n roll
    From Top of the Pops to drawing the dole
    If no one seems to understands
    Start your own revolution, cut out the middleman
    In a perfect world we'd all sing in tune
    But this is reality so give me some room
    So join the struggle while you may
    The Revolution is just a t-shirt away
    A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

    I saw a couple of shows on the Final Ministry Tour and he looked to be better in health but you could tell he was just tired of performing.

    I got him to autograph my backstage pass... that was cool.

    Dead Kennedys are/ were one of, if not THE most important punk band of the 1980's. Like their lyrics or not, but that is a fact.
    That's like saying Frank Kurtz was the most important turkey carver in Omaha, Neb. in the 1950s.

    Now you've done it...you HAD to go & mention one of my favorite people on the entire planet (um, that would be Billy, BTW). He's really and truly one of the all-time sweetest people whose acquaintance I've had the pleasure of making, and is definitely at the top of my all-time list of "Guys who need to be cloned for the benefit of humanity in general, and womanhood in particular".

    As for Jello: I got to see him doing spoken word once in the early '90s when I was living in Athens, GA--he spoke at the University of Georgia's student center, went on around 8 PM, and kept going (with a brief intermission) until the building closed at midnight--yes, he shut the building down--and IIRC, he was probably still talking to people outside afterwards. Whether or not you agree with him (I do, to a point--I'm really a liberal rather than a radical), he's quite the speaker and performer...oh, and rather fond of baked goods to boot. You see, for the past 20+ years, I've had this nasty little tendency to feed starving musicians/performers over the years (just call me the alt-music mama hen, eh?), and I brought a batch of homemade blueberry muffins to the show and managed to get them backstage. When Jello came back out for round 2 of the evening, he stopped in the middle of a rant to explain he had to pick blueberry seeds out of his teeth, burbling happily "Somebody brought me blueberry muffins! NOBODY ever brings me muffins!" So, of course, I had to introduce myself afterwards, and he was very happy to meet the purveyor of baked goods, and very friendly to boot.

    (Oh, and my obligatory Billy/Jello connection story? The first time I saw Billy play in Athens--the night before the Berlin Wall came down--I brought him blueberry muffins as well, which he happily washed down with a Corona. When we met up again a year later, he remembered me right away as the woman who brought the muffins, and spun quite the tale of the wonders the muffins worked; apparently his keyboard player Cara's baby learned to crawl out of the sunken bathtub in his mum's hotel room that day, and God only knows what else--he came perilously close to suggesting that the muffins were responsible for the Wall's fall. Bless his fuzzy little heart... )

    He gave one of the best interviews in The Onion that I have ever read. The interviewer hardly asked any questions. The rest was Jello just talking in a way that I found impressive and intellegent.
    http://www.avclub.com/articles/jello-biafra,13463/

    And just now I checked out some DK (Fans call it "music" - non-fans such as myself will call it noise) for the first time on YouTube.
    His lyrics and noise is nowhere near as intellegent as he is when he talks.
    The junk he spews out is anything that a 5th grader can write.
    It's obvious that the DKs were not after mainstream fame. If they were then they would play to appeal to the masses instead of making it sound like a bunch of talentless noisy hacks.
    Well, I guess that's what Punk rock is really all about.
    They don't give a damn what anybody thinks about how they play it and they attract that kind of rebellious audience.

    So as a talker I can dig what Jello has to say.
    With his band, I could like the message but I can't listen to it because it's not what I like to listen to.

    Jello Biafra is a great man. War shouldn't exist in the first place. G.W. wasn't responsible for 9-11...Israel and the Mossad were...

    And one more thing...LEGALIZE MARIJUANA.

    5th graders cannot write lyrics like Biafra's, You just have to be smarter than a 5th grader to understand them.

    Jello Biafra is an overgrown baby banging hia spoon on his highchair.
