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.
*"I would like to put forth my enthusiastic praise of any and all use of fake blood. I support and encourage the incorporation of as much fake blood as possible into any situation, holiday gatherings and business transactions being my favorites."
