The lawsuit has been going on between Jello and the band for over 5 years now. It has to do with the band complaining about unfair royalties that need to be paid. It was rebuted by Biafra with several other charges about copywrite infringment and the such. But just recently Jello dropped the last of the charges against the band, and the band did the same. His label, Alternative Tentacles, was never bankrupted and is still up and running. And his carreer is anything but destroyed as I beilive he is scheduled to release another spoken word album sometime soon. I think some of you might be confusing this with his PMRC debacle, but thats completely different.

Anyway, Dead Kennedys are awsome. They baisically introduced me to hardcore. One of my favorite 80's HC bands. Crazy fast, crazy smart, and just all around crazy good. I love them.

Don't know about the court stuff but even though I don't agree with Biafra's views, Holiday In Cambodia is an awesome song.
One note timeless, came out of nowhere...

Dead Kennedys tried to have a tour with another singer, I didnt go since I didnt agree with a DK tour without Jello. All of the other members have done projects and toured, Ive seen Peligro, and East Bay Rays bands, dont know if Klaus was doing anything, but they need to let it go, and let Jello do his thing and they can do theirs. If a live DK album is out then its only fair that they all get a little piece of that pie, but I think the band members may be a little jelouse of Jellos success in the music industry, while they continued to play small bills and get paid very little, Jello started his label and did a damn good job of it, Alternative Tentacles has alot of good bands on it and Jello still gets to collaberate with the bands he signed.
