Earlier this week, the sad news was announced that Alexis “Leki” Gotts, drummer of Baba Naga and formerly of Wet Nuns, took his own life after a long battle with depression. It goes without saying that Wet Nuns were a fantastic band and the tributes and eulogies (particularly this one) that have poured in since the news broke show just how much he meant to so many, many people.
Rather than post some empty words of our own – we only met Alexis once, in person, and it’d be a dick move to pretend we knew him well, we wanted to repost the tribute posted by his former Wet Nuns bandmate, Rob Graham:
In memory of Alexis, we’ve put together a two-part Slaylist. For the first part, we’ve put together a compilation of all the Wet Nuns music on Spotify:
For the second part, we wanted to share some of music Alexis helped make as a member of Baba Naga:
Thank you for the music, Alexis.
