Jukebox Chatter: Codex Leicester
Codex Leicester have four questions and one jukebox credit with which to explain the Da Vinci code surrounding their name, how to make a cheap 'n evil music video and more!
What is it about the Da Vinci writings of the same name that interest you?
Da Vinci was way ahead of his time with his theories in the book but what really caught the imagination was that Bill Gates paid $32,800,000 for the codex leicester! We're still hoping Microsoft will endorse us with some silly money and we can retire from our day jobs.
Speaking of codes, da Vinci and all that jazz, are there any weird conspiracies regarding the city of Leicester?
None that I can think of but Leicester's favourite son, David Icke, goal keeper, Grandstand and breakfast tv presenter is the king of modern conspiracies. He's written book after book on that stuff. There're also enough books to fill a bus journey.
The video for Strong Like Bull is absolutely repulsive and terrifying. Who had that evil idea?!!
Two of my brothers make videos and websites, as wetheconspirators.com funnily enough! so they help us out with all that stuff. The video came about due to budget, we had some medals and stuff lying around, went to the market with £15 and bought a heart and some fish bits, i think there was some left-over pizza in there too. I drove my car with the boot open while my brother filmed our dad and his mates running out of the back, pieced it all together and it turned into that evil mini motion picture on the internet.
What was the most memorable song to record off your new EP and why?
'Hey Hey Hot Legs' has turned out to be the most unmemorable! We dont seem to be able to play it live. We know all the bits, we know what order they go in, they just never seem to come out just right. Just like Shellac can't play Doris, we cant play HHHL.
Finally, you have one jukebox credit: what's it gonna be?
This is an easy one, everytime before we have a practice we have a pint or two in the pub nearest our room - they have a wicked online jukebox and 'Duality' by Slipknot must easily be our most played track.
