Eric Boucher, born in Boulder, Colorado, United States, is the son of Stanley and Virgina Boucher, both social workers. Boucher soon developed an interest in international politics and his parents encouraged him to learn more about the subject. As a child, I watched the news avidly. One of the earliest memories of his youth is the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Biafra claims to have been a fan of rock music since he first heard it in 1965, when his parents accidentally tuned in to a rock radio station. For many years he felt devotion for the rockabilly of the 50s and the Surf music, tastes that he maintains to this day. During the 1970s, he became involved in activism activities in reaction to various events of that era including the Vietnam War, the trial of the Chicago 7, and the Kent State massacre.
He began his musical career in January 1977 as a music technician for the punk rock band The Ravers, which later changed his name to The Nails. In that year, he began attending the University of California, where he studied economics. He spent a semester of the year studying in theater workshops and became involved in the punk movement of San Francisco. In June 1978, after his trip to London where he saw and studied the philosophy and behavior of the various urban tribes of that time, he responded to an announcement by guitarist East Bay Ray and together they formed the Dead Kennedys. Biafra began acting with the band with the nickname of Occupant, but soon after he started using his current stage name. Biafra usually wrote the songs of the band, most of which were of a political nature and showed a sardonic sense of humor, sometimes absurd, despite the seriousness of the topics to be discussed. In June 1979, Biafra formed the label Alternative Tentacles, with which the Dead Kennedys released their first single, “California Über Alles”. Biafra created the label to allow the band to release albums without having to withstand the pressure of the big labels to make them change their music (although the big labels were not willing to sign with them because their songs were considered too controversial). After dealing with Cherry Red in the United Kingdom and with IRS Records in the United States for their first album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, the band released all their subsequent albums in Alternative Tentacles, except the live albums issued after the dissolution of the band, when the other members compiled recordings without the approval of Biafra. Biafra is the owner of the company since its founding, although he does not receive any salary for his position (he refers to his position in the company as an “absentee boss”).
After participating in Witchcraft in its beginnings, and another series of collaborations with Melvins (Jelvins), with Al Jourgensen of Ministry (LARD), currently plays with the hardcore punk band Guantanamo School of Medicine
