Oliver/Dawson Saxon

This Saxon offshoot, formed by two early members of the band, formed in 1995 as Son Of A Bitch, which in fact was the original name of Saxon itself. They released one album under that name, 1996's Victim You, which predictably featured healthy nods to their old band, even if American vocalist Ted Bullet didn't sound a lot like Biff Byford. Soon afterward, following a couple of lineup changes, they attempted to straight-out play as Saxon, arguing they had as good a right to the name as Biff's boys. In 2003 the courts struck down that claim, and so the founding pair (Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson) decided to rechristen as Oliver/Dawson Saxon. Since that time the band has mostly recorded live albums (save one studio followup in 2012), and remain active as of early 2018.
