Jello Biafra of Dead Kennedys and Guantanamo School of Medicine interviewed by Jesse Luscious

Jello Biafra is a punk rock icon who spoke with Jesse Luscious for this exclusive and extensive interview on the occasion of his 1st record in 7 years “Tea Party Revenge Porn” with his full-time band JELLO BIAFRA AND THE GUANTANAMO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE. Of course, being Jello Biafra, there are a lot of twists and turns, from personal stories about GWAR to his long-running side project LARD with AL JOURGENSEN of MINISTRY to everyone’s favourite Latino Brujos BRUJERIA to how the remixed DEAD KENNEDYS “Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables” compares with remixed STOOGES albums to how releasing music has changed over the years and so much more! He even finds time to add a couple, two, three words about US and international politics including bonus material about Boris Johnson and Jimmy Saville!

Not only does this interview feature ALL of the songs from the new album, it also features live and studio tracks from JELLO BIAFRA AND MOJO NIXON, JELLO BIAFRA WITH THE MELVINS, and more!

Jesse Luscious, who hosts Losin’ It With Luscious every Monday night 8pm GMT on MMH Radio, worked for Jello Biafra for 15 years. 10 of those years he ran Jello’s record label, Alternative Tentacles Records. He’s seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate…
