Inception: San Diego, 2001

Background:

When Jailbait formed in late 2001, drummer Alex Lautenen had celebrated her seventeenth birthday in September, bassist Amber Dodson turned eighteen in October, guitarist Ashley Degan was eighteen in May, and singer Nicky Friedman turned nineteen in June.

The band landed occasional gigs at Club Xanth, the Che Café, the Playhouse and elsewhere, often, they admit, based on the novelty factor of their youth and gender. “Some people criticize us more because we're girls, saying we use our tits and ass to get what we want, and that we have no musical talent,” says Ashley. “We don't dress provocatively and we don't overly flaunt our sexuality. We're serious about our music, but we're all about having fun, if that makes any sense.”
