Hi, how are you doing?
Thanks for your time. First of all, you may introduce
your band to the world.
Mr. Latex (everything): I'm doing well, thanks.
In a resume, LATEX is an Industrial-Fetish-Porno-Rock
band, and I make all the art and record all the
instruments. Putting pieces of my soul in each word,
each accord, and each shouts, making music all my
thoughts, sensations, emotions, feelings and facts of my
What was the idea behind forming Latex as a solo
Mr. Latex: Its flowed by itself, I played with
several bands and the results did not satisfied me. Then,
I decided to do something more personal: I started to
auditioning musicians and didní t found the right ones
to commit with the music and project. I had a lot of
material but I realized that I was running alone, so
then I started to learn to play all the instruments by
myself. I recorded "Die, and Live Forever" in 2000, a
experimental album, developing ideas and songs by myself,
I became mimetized with the music, then I realized that
to express the musical idea that I want, I must record
them by myself (but; I not discard any collaborations in
the future) and in this way it all came together in a
solo project, and all is to make a voluptuous and unique
band, and this is just the beginning.
What are your main influences?
Mr. Latex: They are too many! I grew up listening
to rock & roll, and the electronic music always rang a
bell on me, and the movie sountracks made me thrill, and
always called my attention the contra-Culture, Magic,
and Vampirism, and I complete myself sumerge my head and
my body in the fetishism, that will always stay latent
Your EP PornoStar recieved some good ratings from our
zine. What is your own view on it?
Mr. Latex: Make me happy! I think it is great, I
put a lot of work in this songs, and PornoStar is the
first song I ever wrote for LATEX in 1998! With the
years, I recorded various versions and improved the
songs to the present version.
And how did people in Argentina reply? And what about
Mr. Latex: In Argentina, the people are too close-minded
when it comes to local and news bands. The are not many
people that take the music seriously and contributing
with the bands, for luckily, between all this shit,
appears people thatís are surprised to see a band like
LATEX playing, and congratulate me for playing and to
keep going. In this fucking country is too hard, and for
the other hand, the press of others country reacting in
very positive way with the LATEX project, and like me,
they wish the band be more active, with a new album and
go out to touring around the world, and this is what I
am trying to accomplish.
When I look at the live pics, I see that Latex is a
good showband. What can a stranger expect at a Latex gig?
Mr. Latex: The unexpected, living the moment,
they are too energetic with atmospheric interims, and
right back energetic shocks of music, with beautiful
Performers-Dancers in a Fetish-Sexual tint. Accompanying
all the show, and each show is difernt of the other.
What can we expect of Latex in the future?
Mr. Latex: Too many things. I have a many ideas
to concrete, I have at least 50 songs to record! The
next year, I want to shoot two more video clips, and
edit 2 epís. Also, I have found some company to support
my projects, editing my music and go on tour around the
The interview ends here, thanks again for your time.
If you have something to add you can do it here.
Mr. Latex: Thanks to you for your support, and
your good will too the band. Thanks too all the people
who believe in LATEX and Letís Fuck!!!.
