"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Robert Fripp


Jello Biafra's wedding

Early 80s, one of the most remarkable figure of the San Francisco's punk scene was the band Dead Kennedys and his leader, the singer and songwriter Jello Biafra.

On October 31 in 1981, Halloween day, Jello Biafra married Theresa Soder, aka Minotchka, lead singer of the punk band The Situations. The "ceremony" happened on a graveyard in the Colma's cemetery and was conducted by Bruce Loose, vocalist and bass player in the band Flipper. The wedding reception, which members of Flipper, Black Flag, and D.O.A.  attended, was held at director Joe Rees' Target Video studios.

Au début des années 80, l'une des figures les plus remarquables de la scène punk de San Francisco était les Dead Kennedys et leur leader, le chanteur et compositeur Jello Biafra.
Le 31 Octobre 1981, jour d'Halloween, Jello Biafra épousait Theresa Soder, alias Ninotchka, chanteuse du groupe punk Les Situations. La cérémonie avait lieu dans le cimetière de Colman. Bruce Loose, chanteur et bassiste du groupe Flipper, en était le maître de cérémonie. La journée s’était terminée dans les locaux de Target Video, avec un concert mémorable réunissant Flipper, Black Flag, D.O.A. et bien sûr, les Dead Kennedys eux-mêmes.
