Punk You

Dead Kennedys, Alternative Tentacles, and the lawsuit that proves there isn't always room for Jello

Though he rarely publicly performs music -- partly because of knee damage he sustained in the 1994 beating -- Biafra occasionally sings or writes for musical projects, including Lard, a collaboration with members of the Chicago industrial band Ministry. The bulk of his post-Dead Kennedys recordings, however, are his own politically themed spoken-word albums, and he continues to speak around the country, mainly on college campuses.

Ray and Fluoride have been playing together locally in Jumbo Shrimp, a surf-rock trio. Peligro now lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to play music. Ray also has his hand in a number of recording projects and says he's started getting involved in the rave scene, which attracts him because "you don't have to deal with lead singers."

The Dead Kennedys enjoying a "Holiday in Cambodia": Until the band broke up in 1985, it was one of punk's leading provocateurs.

Ray catches himself, and laughs. "That's a joke. Kind of."
