Frankenstein 3000 / Bio

When NJ punk-pop outfit Bad Biscut called it quits after a taste of success, Keith Roth switched from bass to guitar and put Frankenstein 3000 together as an outlet for the songs that never quite found a home in his former band. Recruiting drummer Clint Gascoyne, bassist Eric Hoagland and ex-Biscut lead guitarist Tommy Tafaro, Keith's goal was to revitalize the type of music he felt had been dormant for too long: straight up hard and heavy rock 'n' roll. Appearing on numerous tribute albums led to Frankenstein 3000's first release, 2005's "America's Hit Remakers", which boasted such guests as David Johansen (New York Dolls), Cherie Currie (The Runaways) and Leif Garrett. The band finally put out a collection of their own songs in 2007 entitled "Welcome To Planet Omega". Two years later saw the release of "Where Do We Go From Here" and 2010 brought the second covers collection, "They'll Be Waking Up Soon".

Frankenstein 3000 have played with such legendary acts as The New York Dolls, Marky Ramone, Skid Row and The Smithereens and have been the backing band for David Johansen, Cherie Currie, Cheetah Chrome (The Dead Boys) and more. Their music has appeared in some fine Hollywood films, like "Ninja Cheerleaders". Frankenstein 3000 has also appeared on countless tribute albums, including those to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, KISS, Queen, Love And Rockets, AC/DC and Devo.
