Imagine drinking tutti fruity smoothie while bathing in oat milk and at the same time your toes are getting licked by a cat while a burly bearded queen is in the corner twerking.

Basement Bash: How did you get together as a band?

Lexodus: Skid saw me street performing, we stayed in touch and started working together, after time, a flower blossomed and from its sweet pollen, the bees made honey in the skull of a lion. After we fed this to a couple mates we were bound to make music together.

Who would I never share the stage with? Jesus Christ.

Basement Bash: If you had to describe your music to a deaf person, what would you say?

Lexodus: Imagine drinking tutti fruity smoothie while bathing in oat milk and at the same time your toes are getting licked by a cat while a burly bearded queen is in the corner twerking.

This one time at band camp, my penis fell out.

Basement Bash: What was your biggest stage fuck-up?

Lexodus: This one time at band camp, my penis fell out.

Basement Bash: Do you prefer to play big festivals/stages or smaller club gigs?

I should never have eaten that purple crab

Basement Bash: With whom would you never share the stage with?

Lexodus: Jesus Christ

Basement Bash: In ten years you look back to today and think:

Lexodus: I should never have eaten that purple crab

Basement Bash: Do you dream in color or black and white?

Lexodus: color, I recently had a dream where clouds turned into large tropical type flowers and a golden pirate spaceship came soaring through the flower clouds shooting cannons. Chaos ensued and it was beautiful!
