Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine Australian Tour Dates

Written by Mike Hohnen on March 12, 2013

Having wreaked havoc all around the globe as frontman for the simply out-of-control Dead Kennedys, Jello Biafra has announced that he will be returning Down Under with his most current musical project The Guantanamo School Of Medicine.

Together with Rollins Band and Ween bassist Andrew Weiss, drummer Paul Della Pelle (Helios Creed and Nik Turner’s Space Ritual) and the twin guitar attack of Ralph Spight (Victims Family) and Kimo Ball, the band is essentially a super-group and have released music that backs that title. So far, we’ve heard 2009’s The Audacity Of Hype, a handful of EPs and their latest 2nd album White People and the Damage Done, which saw the return of Biafra’s thick melody, and non-stop sas.

Biafra has done his research and hand picked the best of the best for Australian local supports – Grong Grong, Hard-Ons, Useless Children and Zeahorse. Below in the tour dates you’ll be able to find out who’s playing what city.

Though he is no longer with Dead Kennedy’s, Biafra still speaks the truth, so prepare for some total wisdom.
