SPLAT! You've just smacked eyeballs-first into Ded Bugs caught in the web! This is the official homepage of the punk-pop band, Ded Bugs. Four dorks from DeSoto with weapons of music destruction!

Welcome to our nest!



Happy 25th Anniversary... TO US!

It's 2014 and this August Ded Bugs officially turn 25! That was fast! Way way way way back in August 1989, Jeff drove down to DeSoto for who knows what. We ended up goofing off and recording a few songs on my Fostex X-26 4-track cassette recorder (it sounded fancy at the time!) and BAM! A monster was born. To celebrate our silver anniversary, we'll be rocking out more! Next up: We'll be blasting ears at The Demo in St. Louis w/Peelander Z, Fri Mar 28. !!!ALL AGES!!! Click the "SHOWS" button for details.

ALSO! The plan for this year is to upload our entire catalog - vinyl and cassettes included - to BandCamp. I hope to upload one album per month leading up to our August b-day. Our 5th album, "stop and smell the stinking corpse lilies", which has been out of print for over 5 years, was uploaded Feb 1 and is now available for your consumption. All original art included.

Sincere THANX to all our fans, friends and fellow rock'n'rollers that have made the past 25 years fly by like windshields toward a fly!

rawk owt with your gutz owt!
