Bri Blahg… Our Michigan Week Chat With Bo Biafra Of The Dead Schembechlers

2007 "Hate Michigan Rally" Columbus, OH. Mr. Biafra on the right.

There will be no Dead Schembechlers’ “Hate Michigan Rally” this week and that’s a shame. Fans have been asking why. Front man Bo Biafra from the “Best Damned Punk Band In The Land’ says Ohio State fans have only themselves to blame. Their worship of what a Biblical Biafra calls “false idols” has instead forced the polarizing singer into the Ohio wilderness. Biafra has been wandering the state for near 40 days and nights now channeling ghostly dispatches from the late Woody Hayes himself, and preaching a return to old time Buckeye values of hard work, honor, duty, and of course, an all consuming hatred of the “state up north.”

Coach Hayes is an angry God, but we knew that. Hayes, says Biafra, is not pleased about so many roses clenched in so many teeth, and dreams of parades and warm California holiday evenings. No not in the least.

Friday I spoke with Bo Biafra of The Dead Schembechlers. He used the occasion to announce “The Best Damned Punk Band In The Land” would, for the first time, play a show in Ann Arbor. The concert is Ohio State/Michigan game day morning. He was so fired up, tomorrow’s USC game seemed almost an afterthought.

Below you see some artwork for the upcoming Dead Schembechlers tour. Front man Bo Biafra just sent it to me. They have big plans for this year’s Ohio State/Michigan game. I’ll be hooking up with Biafra for a phone interview soon, most likely tomorrow.
