The Dead Boys
Originally known as Frankenstein, The Dead Boys were a punk rock band formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1976 after the breakup of Rocket From The Tombs. They adopted the name The Dead Boys when they relocated to New York City in July 1976 where they were active until 1979. They briefly reunited in 1986 and again in 2004 and 2005 without Stiv Bators who passed away in 1990.

BEFORE ONE UNDERSTANDS THE UNIQUE MUSICAL PHOENIX THAT IS THE JEZEBEL DOGS, IT MAKES COMMON SENSE TO TAKE A QUICK TRIP BACK TO APPRECIATE THE RAW MAGIC OF THIS BAND…
Flashback circa mid 80’s:
Southeast America was keeping a dark musical secret under its rich storied cloak. Not the Muscle Shoals sound or Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama, but a sticky, rough-edged sound of sweet n’ sour rock n’ roll, permeated from the transplants of rock royalty.
Influenced by innovators like the Ramones, Velvet Underground, New York Dolls, Kiss, and even the later introductions of Southern Death Cult, Mother Love Bone & the West coast scene, young & hungry rock soldiers started banding together like street gangs in the night, taking post on all corners of major city south sides and legendary musical breeding grounds.
The 90’s had become an eclectic & exciting time for music, the arts & all nightlife in general. Birmingham powerhouses like Electric Circus, the Autumn Lords, Slick Lilly & Universal Joint were dominating the region and continued to do so for over a decade. Anyone who came into the Southeast expecting only the southern slide mellowness of the Allman Brothers were quickly awakened w/ a loud pop to the ears by the sheer power of these bands. The secret was out and the corporate wolves came to feed on this gold mine in the South. Most died, some survived….
Fast forward to the 21st century, present-day:
Members and bonafide survivors from all aforementioned Birmingham groups come together in a supernova explosion of rock nirvana. First, by performing for leisure and a round of cold ones. Then gradually playing to nurture demand. The Jezebel Dogs surface back onto the scene w/ a hungry fervor, unmatched by other acts on their turf. These dogs are here to take back their ground. You’re either in, or you’re their next meal. Choose wisely.

(Temporary) Saviors are a high energy, Alabama punk rock n' roll band born out of a mutual idolization of The Hellacopters and other high energy rock n' roll and punk rock bands in the the seedy confines of one of the last truly authentic rock n' roll dive bars left in the world, The Nick (located in Birmingham, AL).
As the old idols of rock n' roll fade away, (Temporary) Saviors will appear as needed to inject a healthy dose of rock n' roll into the world...
