Venom P. Stinger - Meet My Friend Venom LP
Sorry for the lack of posts last week but I caught the flu so I didn't feel like doing alot lately.
But here's a nice treat for you all. It's quite off the beaten HC/punk track.
'Meet My Friend Venom' is the 1st album of Melbourne band Venom P. Stinger. It was released in 1986 on No Master's Voice and is quite hard to find these days.
Singer Dugald MacKenzie and guitarplayer Mick Turner were also in the legendary Sick Things who released the classic 'Committed To Suicide' 7".
Venom P. Stinger did some other releases later like the 'Walking About' 7" and 'What's Yours Is Mine' LP on Aberrant, the 'Waiting Room' CDEP on Au-Go-Go Records, The 'Live In Davis' LP on Anopheles, the 'Thick-Skin' 7" on Death Valley Records and the 'Tearbucketer' CD on Siltbreeze.
Both Dugald and Mick were also active in Fungus Brains, a band inspired by the Birthday Party.
Mick Turner and drummer Jim White also started instrumental trio The Dirty Three.
Singer Dugald passed away in 2004.
Venom P. Stinger is a great mix of punk with noiserock. Check 2 videoclips on Detailed Twang.
