Article I found on Facebook about East Bay Ray (former guitarist of Dead Kennedys) who was one of my heros as a teenager
EAST BAY RAY played guitar for DEAD KENNEDYS and penned some of the most recognizable and memorable guitar riffs to emerge from the West Coast punk movement. While most punk guitarists of the time were one-dimensional, Ray incorporated a variety of styles ...into his playing and hatched a truly original guitar sound, effortlessly rolling off an assortment of riffs (from surf rock, power chords and original open voicings to Ennio Morricone-esque spaghetti Westerns), in addition to creating spacey sounds courtesy of an Echoplex effects box. “Jello Biafra got all the press. But it was the guy beside him in the Dead Kennedys - East Bay Ray - who had the bigger hand in drawing up the blueprint for the second wave of American punk.” ~ San Jose Mercury News & Oakland Tribune, Nov. 7 2006: The Bay Area’s 25 Greatest Guitar Players East Bay Ray was born in California on November 17, 1958. He was inspired to do music by his father, who had a collection of 78RPM jazz and country blues records from the 1930's and 40's. When Ray's father was a teenager, he used to sneak into black jazz clubs to see Duke Ellington and Count Basie back when the country had legal racial segregation. His father would later take Ray and his brother when they were very young to see legendary performers like Muddy Waters, the Count Basie orchestra and Lightin' Hopkins. Ray's music was also inspired by his mother, who listened to the Weavers and Pete Seeger. Both his parents use to organize art and music festivals in their local neighborhood. In addition to music and art, his parents also taught him a sense of fairness and politically inspired him — both his mother and father were involved in the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. At school, Ray studied architecture, but found it artistically restricting. When he did graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, Ray was writing and playing music and by then he found that it had become impossible for him to live without music. In 1978, Ray placed an ad in a San Francisco music paper looking for other musicians to form a band. JELLO BIAFRA and KLAUS FLOURIDE answered that ad and their meeting led to the formation of the Dead Kennedys. With the addition of drummer TED, soon to be replaced by D.H. PELIGRO, the group specialized in scalding-yet-witty political/social commentary, as evidenced by such classics as "California Uber Alles," "Holiday in Cambodia," "Police Truck," "Kill the Poor" and "Moon Over Marin" and their 1980 full-length debut, FRESH FRUIT FOR ROTTING VEGETABLES. Many DK songs have been included in the popular video games GUITAR HERO and ROCK BAND. Such further releases as 1981's IN GOD WE TRUST INC., 1982's PLASTIC SURGERY DISASTERS, 1985's FRANKENCHRIST 1986's BEDTIME FOR DEMOCRACY made the Dead Kennedys one of the world's top punk outfits. And, in a monumental achievement considering that the recordings were released on independent labels, GIVE ME CONVENIENCE OR GIVE ME DEATH is certified GOLD in both the United States and the United Kingdom and "Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables" and "In God We Trust, Inc." are certified Gold in the United Kingdom. With their success internationally, Dead Kennedys toured all across the world - throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Austria, France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Serbia, Turkey (the first punk band to play a Muslim country), Brazil. Argentina and Chile. Known in the alternative music scene for his unique artistry and multifaceted talents, Ray was featured in the January 2006 issue of GUITAR WORLD and in the April 2006 edition of GUITAR PLAYER magazine speaking about music, guitar playing, songwriting and record production techniques. In addition to playing guitar and composing for the band, East Bay Ray also supervised many of the band's recording and record releases. He produced and mixed Dead Kennedys' first single, "California Über Alles"/"Man with the Dogs," and sold the first copies from the back of his car to local record stores. He went on to produce or mix many of their other classic recordings, including "Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables," "In God We Trust, Inc.," "Holiday in Cambodia"/"Police Truck" and "Too Drunk to Fuck" (w/ GEZA X), "Plastic Surgery Disasters," and "Bleed for Me" (w/ THOM WILSON). When Dead Kennedys suffered from distribution problems owing to the band's controversial name and subject matter, Ray set up Alternative Tentacles Records as a formal record company in 1981 for the band to bypass the major record labels' reluctance to distribute their material as well as to release recordings by other artists. He remained a partner in the label until mid 1986. After the band stopped touring in February 1986, Ray played with other artists, including garage rocker PEARL HARBOUR and the lounge act FRENCHY. Ray recorded on the album SIDI MANSOUR by Algerian singer CHEIKHA REMITTI, which featured contributions by KING CRIMSON guitarist ROBERT FRIPP and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist FLEA and he added his guitar to (HED) PE's CD BROKE on the track "Waiting to Die." He also played with AMANDA PALMER, of the DRESDEN DOLLS, on her release WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER, for the song "Guitar Hero." Ray also did soundtrack work for directors DAVID SEGAL and SCOTT MCGHEE (who would later enjoy acclaim with their 2001 thriller/drama THE DEEP END).

Hey everybody out there in podcast land! Well me and some old dear buddies of mine (Nate Higgins and Butch Taylor) had been planning to do an 80's show sometime to spotlight some bands that are kind of hard to fit in during a "normal" Plastic Magic show. So here it is: podcast # 72 "the 80's show" you'll hear things such as: THE CURE, THE CULT, ELVIS COSTELLO, CHEAP TRICK, THE CRAMPS, DEAD KENNEDYS, BUTTHOLE SURFERS, DURAN DURAN, TALKING HEADS, DEVO, X, JANE'S ADDICTION, THE PIXIES and NRBQ...we even went as far as playing some old "hair band" faves like: RATT and MOTLEY CRUE! At the end we played a tribute to the late WINDY AUSTIN who died this morning. WINDY AUSTIN fronted some legendary groups in Fayetteville Arkansas like RODEO, ZORRO AND THE BLUE FOOTBALLS and WINDY AUSTIN'S HOT HOUSE TOMATO BOYS. This podcast is 3 hours (meant to half it but forgot to) and in the last hour of the show we played the whole LP of ZORRO AND THE BLUE FOOTBALLS.

NOIR 33 photography exhibit and CD release party for Wade Ogle Jan. 21st 2010 at The Dickson Theater
A multi media event! Well let's see...for those who don't know who Wade Ogle is....Wade was at one time front man, guitar player and lead singer for Fayetteville, AR legends THE FAITH HEALERS who later changed there name to DALI AUTOMATIC. This was from around late 80's till about 1994 or so. Later Wade had a group called HONEY DIED and even later a group called DELTA SPACEMEN....and friends I've been there to see em all! It may also be noted that Wade ran the late JR's Lightbulb Club (R.I.P.) for a while and was responsible for booking some great great bands there. Wade has recently been back at it making new recordings for us to enjoy! And so on Thursday January 21st. 2010 at JR's Dickson St. Theater Wade Ogle and new band the Sea Shall Save Them will have a CD release party for their new CD!
but that's not all, kids!
Also, there will be a photography display on the big screen by NOIR 33 PHOTOGRAPHY. So what is NOIR33? NOIR 33 Photography is John Moore's work. John Moore has been documenting beautifully on what he calls "junk cameras" scenes from underground bands of the area, and other random portraits of locals and beyond in black and white 35mm film. John is also well known for poster and album artwork for bands in the area as well as national acts under the moniker ENKI3D. This event starting at 7pm should not be missed as John may not do this again for a while! John Moore is currently working in motion picture also done on vintage super 8 film.
Also to finish off the evening you will hear the exciting psedo-hillbilly sounds of the fantastic POPE COUNTY BOOTLEGGERS. You may want to get there early to mingle and find a good spot to be, it's a big place but there is expected to be a big attendance!
