Hello, and thanks for
this opportunity. First of all, please introduce your
teen club to the grown ups that read this interview.
Alex (vocals): Allright Man. Probably Latexxx
Teens can be defined as a Death Club, a black circle
with degeneration in the middle, a little great army
marching against all gods. LXT was formed some years ago
to delete two thousands years of (anti)human lies. The
club minds are: Mr. Icy (guitar), Plastik Poison 69 (synth
& programming), Joseph (bass), La Nuit (guitar) & Me (devil’s
Although you are still teenagers, Latexxx Teens
members have already history in other different bands
like Draconian Order and My Sixth Shadow. How important
is it for a band like you to have different influences
in your music?
Alex: I think the different roots are most
important for us, we can mix a lot of different kind of
music like punk, metal, wave, electro and so fuckin’ on…We
consider our music as something can’t be closed in
simply words, we see the past to enlarge the future. LXT
are not conventional band and shall for ever be…We’re
not interestin’ on to record the same old song….
What bands have been your main influences, and why?
Alex: There’re a lot of bands we consider a
source of inspiration, among the others: Shotgun Messiah:
I consider Tim Skold a fuckin’ genius, when r’n’r is a
fuckin’ parody, all hair spray & bubblegum melodies he
recorded Violent New Breed…He’s a prophet!!! Marilyn
Manson: Last r’n’r star on heart. He embodies what the
words r’n’r really mean! Murderdolls: a perfect mix of
punk, r’n’r & guitar wall of sound. The Kovenant: space
metal. You can find other influences too in our music as
NYDolls, Vampire Love Dolls, Dead Boys, White Zombies,
Sex Pistols, Rammstein, Amen & so fuckin’ on.
In February 2005 you decided to send the drumming
teen back to his mommy and replace him with a machine
drummer. Why did you decided to continue with a
Alex: Alex was pissed off ‘cause there’ re some
personal divergences about the band and when was the
moment to replace him, we thought that a machine drummer
was the right solution: A machine drummer is colder,
darker, harder & faster of any human, it’s perfect for
our music and you can taste the result in “MOLOKO &
ULTRA-VIOLENCE”, new LXT’s ep, it will be released early
Your debut EP has already came out. What is your view
on this release?
Alex: I think Latex (De)Generation is a good Ep,
and even if 2 years have gone by from recordin’ session
i love it yet…Sure there’re a lot of errors, probably we
could have made it better, but it is like a son, it’s
like the first love…you can’t forget it….
How did the people and the press reply to this debut?
Alex: Ohhh it was fantastic, we’ve a lot of good
reviews and the copies are now sold out, I can’t believe
it, I don’t think an underground band without fame could
have this result…but it’s a long way to the top if you
wanna r’n’r and so we’re workin’ yet on new stuff!!!
Your band operates under a certain image. How
important is image for a band like Latexxx Teens, and
why did you pick an image like this?
Alex: I think image is important for every kind
of band, I read many interviews about band don’t care
about theirs image, fuck who’s like a band with a nerd
look? Maybe there’re a lot of “Wanna Be Bands”, but
there’re too a lot of bands with shity look…Our image
embodies what we’re…We’re showin’ you a piece of our
soul: crazy hairs, mascara, eye liner, white faces,
zombie fashion clothes belong to our DNA…As I said LXT
are not a conventional band, the image is a fundamental
aspect of our intent: to create a world where music,
images & words rape who came…
I also found a live section on your website. What can
a stranger expect when he will go to a live show of the
Alex: LXT live is not a simply show, is a life
experience, a psychotic theatrical cabaret…Guitars wall
of sound flirt with electro machine zeit, human feelings
& machine geist are the same thing…
What are the plans for the near future?
Alex: In this moment we're working on “MOLOKO &
ULTRA-VIOLENCE” (Tracklist will be released soon) and it
should be release in January 2006...We're planning some
gigs in Rome too...Then Latexxx Teens have been involved
in two fuckin’ cool tribute: The first one, ”Never Mind
The Tribute”, is an Italian compilation dedicated to Sex
Pistols & Latexxx Teens chose to give its contribute
with a bombastic cyber-punk version of the classic tune
“Anarchy In U.K.” The second one, "I'm not just anyone -
portrait of Stiv", is an homage to Stiv “Master Of Chaos”
Bators: the band chooses “Ain’t It Fun” , The Dead Boys’
tune. In this tribute appear a lot of fuckin’ cool band,
among the others Stevie Klasson , Nikki Sudden, Snatches
of Pink, The Dead Dogs (The Dogs D’ Amour, Vixen), Neil
Leyton, Landslide Ladies; the whole track-list will be
released soon; the compilation will be released on
Thanks a lot for your time answering the questions.
If you have some final words, you can add them here.
Alex: Thanxxx you too for supporting us and for
givin’ to my band a little bit of your time, thanxxx to
Industrialized Metal for visibility and to make all this
possible…Remember Heresy is the lifeblood of religions.
It is faith that begets heretics. There are no heresies
in a dead religion…Next Step For Mankind Will Be The
Last Seasons In Sin!
