Returning to Newcastle in 2014, Dead Kennedys have unfinished business to attend to after taking in only part of the country on their previous acclaimed visit in 2011.
East Bay Ray, Klaus Flouride, D. H. Peligro and Ron “Skip” Greer will be bringing the Dead Kennedys’ message against political apathy to Newcastle on October 10.
DEAD KENNEDYS were one of the most popular and important American hardcore punk bands of the late ’70s/early ’80s. They formed in San Francisco in 1978 when EAST BAY RAY placed an ad in a music paper that vocalist JELLO BIAFRA responded to. They were soon joined by bassist KLAUS FLOURIDE, drummer TED and a second guitarist known to posterity simply as 6025. The latter departed in March 1979, while Ted was replaced at the very end of 1980 by D.H. PELIGRO.
The Dead Kennedys play The Small Ballroom on October 10. Tickets on sale through oztix.com.au
