Reputations are built on words. Whole lives are built this way. Lives cocooned in print, through articles, stories, word of mouth, chatroom whispering, but listed achievements can never truly do justice
to a life lived.
After a few minutes with anyone, the papery layers of these perceived lives peel and fade – infamy becomes history, the stuff of legend dissipates into flesh and a beating heart.
From fronting one of hardcore’s most successful and innovative bands, to championing various political and social causes, Dennis Lyxzen seems to be a walking representation of ‘90s hardcore ethic and culture, but in amongst the folklore, the history and the hearsay which surrounds him, you’ll find a down-to-earth guy with something to say.
In ‘A Few Minutes With...AC4’, we catch a fleeting glimpse of a group of friends travelling the world doing what they love to do. Davros catches up with Dennis and AC4 guitarist Karl Backman before their recent Brisbane show to talk touring, ageing in punkdom and the possibility of a Refused reunion.
