About Dead Kennedys
Dead Kennedys were one of the most popular and important American hardcore punk bands of the late ’70s and early ’80s. They formed in San Francisco in 1978 and after a brief rehearsal period, Dead Kennedys played their first gig at Mabuhay Gardens in July 1978. It wasn’t too long before the band gained a considerable following around San Francisco. Their sound could be described as a cross between the Sex Pistols and the Ventures.
Dead Kennedys’ early success led them to record their first single, “California Über Alles,” in 1979. “Holiday in Cambodia” (1980) followed and is perhaps the band’s definitive moment. Almost as essential was “Kill the Poor” (1980) and the debut LP, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables (1980). That LP went on to be awarded a Gold Record in Britain.
The band continued to expand their audience by playing at a mix of underground venues in different corners of the U.S. and Canada. They did their first British tour in late 1980, which established the band as a figurehead for an audience long deprived of the Pistols, Biafra stage-diving to great enthusiasm. Dead Kennedys went on to tour worldwide, covering the continents of North America, Europe and Australia.
