Lucid Dementia embodies the theatrics and sound of Gwar and Marilyn Manson on acid with the nihilistic political agenda of KMFDM and Nine Inch Nails at a cock fight. It's like watching a bunch of evil Muppets freaking out after someone slipped caffeine into their koolaid.
Interesting sounds, powerful guitar riffs, hooks so deep you bleed, drums that really thump, the vocal insanity of a children's puppet show, bass lines that dance and the wonderful horror of living.
"Lucid Dementia" is named after a six foot tall alien-like creature puppet that fronts the band, and who has been leading it in a full frontal assault on audiences since 1996. The legendary Lucid Dementia performance is a cross between a b-movie slasher flick, a David Lynch film, and a children's puppet show gone horribly wrong.* You have to see it to believe it.
*” Lucid Dementia was fascinating; rarely have I found a band so involved with their personal mythology. The set started with a singing, six foot tall, alien puppet, and the bizarrity only continued from there.”
-Jerusha Burnett Redushab LiveJournal
"I don't know quite what I was expecting, but quite frankly, I was blown away!!! This band is great! They're goth, punk and tight as hell. I couldn't stop pounding my feet and bobbing my head. I defy you not to get off!"
-John Aielli, KUT radio 90.5FM OCT 2007
