What is your stage name?

Our collective stage name is Galactapus, our members have no stage names nor real names to offer you. Additionally, we don’t make stage appearances, we exist on record and sometimes film. And print I guess

Is there a story behind your stage name?

Half underwater, half intergalactic. Both areas underexplored

Where do you find inspiration?

Life’s poetry, the unlikelihood of two things occurring at the same time in the same place. The elements, the supernatural and the carnal.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?

Transport. It created an alternate reality with its own smells and colors. A preferable wonderland

Are you from a musical or artistic family?

Aren’t we all artists and actors? In all honesty, as genetics go, I think I was born with no sense of rhythm or pitch, based upon my parent’s singing at church. It’s all been uphill

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?

I’m not sure Galactapus is part of the industry, but early memories include commercials, arcade music and tinkering on instruments around the house. Later, heavy metal helped us develop chops, then punk and such inspired us to lose those chops

I’m not sure Galactapus is part of the industry

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?

We’ve all come about it from different motivations and methods, and maintain different competencies. I think that’s a strength for a group

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
Lots of cover bands. I don’t want to date Galactapus with specific concerts, begging your pardon

How could you describe your music?

We’ve been going with garage-prog lately, since no one else is using it. Music is its own thing. I’m hesitant to corrupt the music with too much verbiage, fearing it would negate the usefulness of it. Are we a frustratingly vague interview?

Describe your creative process.

Mostly always different. Sometimes I think we’ve exhausted every method, then a new idea pops in the side door. This usually come through synesthesia, which is to say in the form of colors, textures, smells and so forth. Temperatures. Sounds strange, but notes and beats come towards the tail end. At some point the song starts make the decisions

What is your main inspiration?

I guess the notion that we have an opportunity to add something of beauty in the world that wouldn’t have been there otherwise, unique to our efforts

What musician do you admire most and why?
Galactapus are avid music collectors, but extremely irreverent. The wonderful artists we adore, there’s tons of them and for every different reason under the sun

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?

Hopefully always. It’s hard for us to justify music that isn’t evolving. Repeating yourself is good for longevity, but that’s not a longevity we’d want. It would be better to just stop.

Who do you see as your main competitor?

We’re peaceful uncompetitive souls. If we knew who was doing music remotely similar, we would send them flowers and buy all their records

What are your interests outside of music?
Animals, mental health, art, cooking, lovemaking
If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
Most musicians, us included, don’t actually have music careers. We go to jobs, then throw money into a black hole to have the luxury of playing

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?

None specifically. Sometimes in life we’re misunderstood. That would happen with or without music.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?

Have it publicly funded

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?

The Rainbows Of Wrong, our upcoming album, is about celebrating the vast and marvelous spectrum of failure, and making a lifestyle out of it

What are your plans for the coming months?
Gosh, sometimes it’s all we can muster to just get a day under our belt. We can only remain liquid and see what she brings to us

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans
No. We’ve designed our lives to be as insular as can be. We produce all our music, videos, photography and promotion within the Galactapus house.

What message would you like to give to your fans?

To stay tuned. Not to Galactapus necessarily, just to stay tuned, even when your instruments are out of tune.
