Jello Biafra, the former frontman and chief-agitator for legendary U.S. punks Dead Kennedys, returns to New Zealand this May for his first band performances since 1983’s infamous DKs gig at Auckland’s Mainstreet.

Biafra’s band The Guantanamo School Of Medicine features former Rollins Band and Ween bassist Andrew Weiss, drummer Paul Della Pelle (Helios Creed / Nik Turners' Space Ritual) and the twin guitar attack of Ralph Spight (Victims Family) and Kimo Ball.

Formed in 2009 after Jello was inspired by The Stooges performance at Iggy Pop's 60th birthday and a rare Stateside visit from Australia's Radio Birdman, Jello & Guantanamo... quickly recorded an album, The Audacity Of Hype released to immense anticipation via Jello's Alternative Tentacles label. Fans were not disappointed. Audacity... retained some of the spy-music-on-meth chaos of the Dead Kennedys while adding a healthy dose of Detroit style proto-punk mixed with layer upon layer of sonic guitar noise. In short: it rocks.
