In a new interview, Greg Prato of Songfacts asked Jello Biafra to address the hints at a reconciliation between Biafra and the other members of the Dead Kennedys. Jello said this:
Ray just spat out a bald faced lie, like a reunion was about to happen. […] The whole way they've dumbed down Dead Kennedys into one big cash scam […] I don't want any part of that. I'm not a "retro guy," anyway. I've worked really hard to set myself up so I've never had to be. If they're willing to undo every last bit of damage they've done, maybe we'll talk.
I'm kind of cynical about a lot of reunions, anyway. I don't want to re-form a band for the wrong reasons, because people are going to smell that from the stage, just like I do as a fan, and then I want no part of it.
Jello's band, the Guantanamo School of Medicine, just released White People and the Damage Done in 2013. We also just ran our own Jello Biafra interview last week, check it out.
