LIXIVIUS - Dance The Dance

Lixivius was formed in 1996 with Johnnie Mac on lead guitar and vocals.  Their EP 'Dance the Dance' was recorded in March 1999 at the infamous Albert Studio in Sydney and produced by Ian Miller, legendary rock n roll guitarist with the John Paul Young band and producer of a string of hit singles throughout the late 60's and early 70's.

The name Lixivius was one that popped up literally everywhere around Sydney… on sound desks, posters, and lavs in venues from the Bat and Ball, Excelsior, Annandale, Hopetoun to the Hard Rock Cafe. This band was obviously doing something right to be getting gigs in all these venues, and when you finally did catch up with them you we’re greeted by two guys, three girls and a rather eclectic show that included guitars, drums, sax and a didge!
