Band name

Damon explains where the band's name came from:

"[I invented it] as a sort of homage to the Replicant idea created by Ridley Scott in the Blade Runner films in relation to Philip K Dick's 'Do androids dream of electric sheep'. Turns out a Replikin is a peptide found in amino acids and proteins which depending on numbers will determine the virulence of an outbreak or infection. Complete accident of timing but I like the name and I guess these things can be interpreted in many different ways."
