Deadboy & The Elephantmen
Based in Houma, Louisiana, the band was fronted by Dax Riggs (formerly of Acid Bath and Agents of Oblivion). Riggs conceived the name as a combination of both the early New York punk band Dead Boys, which he refers to as "Deadboys", and his former band Acid Bath's song "Dead Girl", as well as the David Lynch film The Elephant Man.
After disputes with an independent label over the distribution of their debut album "If This Is Hell, Then I'm Lucky", the band signed a three-record deal with Fat Possum.
For the latter part of 2005, and most of 2006, they toured in support of their major label debut "We Are Night Sky" playing from bars and smaller venues to Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and Bonnaroo.
In early 2006, Riggs recruited his former Agents of Oblivion bandmate, Alex Bergeron, to play bass on tour. Later that year, the band was primarily a duo of Riggs and Tessie Brunet. This line-up was often compared to The White Stripes in reviews, and their music is sometimes referred to as "swamp rock." By 2007, Brunet left the band and Riggs went on to a solo career.
