Dead Kennedy’s Biafra Must Pay Bandmates

A 2000 ruling against former Dead Kennedy’s frontman Jello Biafra was unanimously upheld by a California Court of Appeals yesterday. The three-judge panel found that Biafra still owed bandmates guitarist East Bay Ray, bassist Klaus Flouride and drummer D.H. Peligro more than $200,000 in compensatory and punitive damages because his label, Alternative Tentacles, withheld money from the band partnership, Decay Music. Biafra’s attempts to dissolve the partnership and gain sole custody over the Kennedy’s music was also denied.
