....WE ARE EXOGEN........ .. We formed Exogen in the searing and sweltering heat of June 2008 in scenic and stylish Düsseldorf. After a number of highly productive songwriting sessions we're happy to report that we've finished our labour of love of a debut album 'Library of Light'. It's a kaleidoscope of eighties music featuring a range of styles inspired by the compelling guitar-based hymns of the Chamaeleons, Siouxsie and Peter Murphy, by the extravagant avantgarde epics of Bauhaus, The Associates and Magazine, by the carefree, naively louche, tongue-in-cheek, but sometimes melancholy paeans to modern life of ABC, Roxy Music and Steve Harley, and of course the exotic stylishness of Japan, Bowie and Sakamoto. .... .. Rest assured that we do not simply imitate or iterate; we quote, we reinvent lovingly and respectfully - we put things in a new light, taking the Eighties of our above-mentioned heroes further with a dose of 21st Century sensibility. We also read between the lines of their epochal works and add, in our modest way, to their continuing story! Please listen and enjoy! .... ..You can download a selection of songs from the Indiestore player and do us a good turn by buying a download! Thanks in advance! Your Volker, Suzana and Lucian of Exogen. .... .... ....CURRENT LINE-UP........ ..Volker Rohde, the initiator and producer of the band is an experienced singer-songwriter with 2 CD albums with his former Goth band IN MITRA MEDUSA INRI under his belt.

Currently also a member of the band Dharma Bums, she has played in many exotic avantgard projects and performances, having recorded with, among others, such German Gothic greats as Lachrimosa. .... ..Olaf Rick, a founding member of the band together with Volker Rohde, played bass on early Exogen songs, but left in october 2008.
