Spinner dubs Boulder's Biafra one of music's 10 biggest geeks
AOL's music blog, Spinner.com, posted a list late last week titled "Revenge of the Rock Nerds: The 10 Biggest Geeks in Music." Between such dorky songsmiths as Talking Heads' David Byrne (#10) and Weezer's Rivers Cuomo (#1) lies former Dead Kennedys frontman and longtime Bay Area fixture Jello Biafra (#8), who is cited by Spinner's staff for his "obnoxious persona and politically charged lyrics." Curiously, Spinner also goes out of its way to mention how the adolescent Biafra's "anti-establishment angst" stemmed from "the gentrification of his hometown of Boulder, Colo." However, Spinner fails to point out the geekiest thing about Biafra: his Chipmunk Punk voice.
