Venus Blue [Demo]
This Houston trio have some serious pedigree. Their self-titled ‘demo’ – a ‘demo’ that would easily pass as a polished EP – is a definite example of ‘record collection rock’: you can hear everyone from Blue Cheer to the Stooges, early Pentagram, and smatterings of hardcore punk. Venus Blue describe themselves as a band with a “unique sound” that “boggles the mind”. They’re not wrong.
