03/05/08: More about Mike Conley from Jello Biafra
Jello had this to add about Mike Conley from M.I.A. and Naked Soul

"I have few regrets about my life in punk and the underground. The big one is that so many dear friends have died so young.

Mike was more than a great frontman with a great voice in a great band. He was warm, friendly, even soothing almost. He always made you feel accepted - that he was on your side and we were all in this together. A reporter told me that ex-M.I.A. guitarist Nick Adams said something to the effect of whenever Mike entered a room he always left with more friends than had when he came in. That was Mike. This is so wrong. It always is. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Three young girls have lost their father. A memorial and scholarship fund has been set up at Mike Conley Family Memorial Fund, c/o Orange County Teachers Federal Credit Union, P.O. Box 11547, Santa Ana, CA 92711.

I will always miss him.

Jello Biafra"

03/15/07: Greedy ex-DKs okay song for rape scene in new Tarantino Movie
From Jello Biafra:
East Bay Ray and Co. have gone ahead and cleared a cover version of Dead Kennedys' "Too Drunk to Fuck" for a brutal scene in Grindhouse, a 'double-feature' directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. This is their lowest point since Levi's. I Like some of Tarnatino's work, another place in the film might have been fine. But this goes against everything the Dead Kennedys stands for in spades. The scene is actually in the "Planet Terror" film directed by Rodriguez. Tarantino himself is pointing a gun at a disabled amputee woman's head yelling "Dance, Bitch!" as the Nouvelle Vague cover of "Too Drunk to Fuck" plays from a boombox. The terrified woman later "wins" by killing Tarantino, but that excuse does not rescue this at all. I wrote every note of that song and this is not what it was meant for.

Some people will do anything for money. I can't help but think back to how prudish Klaus Flouride was when he objected to H.R. Giger's painting on the "Frankenstien" poster, saying he couldn't bear to show it to his parents. I'd sure love to be a fly on the wall when he tries to explain putting a song in a rape scene for money to his teenage daughter.

The deal was pushed through by a new business manager the other three hired, Kevin Raleigh of Associated Talent Management in Hollywood.
