Real name: Eric Boucher. As of this date, he is currently (and much to his surprise) the Green Party
candidate for President
of the United States
. This is not the first time he's sought public office - he once ran for mayor
of San Francisco
on a platform that included requiring businessmen
to wear clown
suits to work.
His life was pretty much torn apart when he was put on trial for peddling obscene materials to minors, when the political ascendancy of Tipper Gore's PMRC met the release of the Dead Kennedys album Frankenchrist, which contained a fold-out poster of H. R. Giger's painting Penis Landscape. Biafra was eventually found not guilty, but in the meantime he lost his band, his wife, and most of his money. Details may be heard on his spoken word album High Priest of Harmful Matter.
