Icon from The Venus Fly Trap follows on from Nemesis which came out in 2008 and
a limited red vinyl best of Metamorphosis in 2016. Is there life on Mars? Venus and
Mars... Men are from.... Mythology has been part of VFT's psyche alongside space and
science fiction. Screen idols and goddesses, the celluloid pantheon... immortality
guaranteed... Music created for imaginary films for your mind. Legend, iconic, over
-used, TV celebrities, famous for being famous... Film noir via Tarantino-female
heroines with edge... "Vitesse" built for speed, streamlined structure, fast and
furious... propulsion, eyeliner eyes... like a beam of headlights.
Personnel: Alex Novak - vocals & Andrew Denton - guitar/programming.

GLAM    3       DAVID J : CROCODILE TEARS AND THE VELVET COSH           LP      09.2018

Between the end of Bauhaus and the beginning of Love & Rockets, David J recorded five
singles, and an LP for Glass Records, and played on two albums by The Jazz Butcher.
"Crocodile Tears And The Velvet Cosh" (1985) was and remains one of the crowning
glories of the original Glass label. This reissue comes with remastered sound an
a printed inner bag featuring lyrics.
GLAM    004     VELVET CRUSH : IN THE PRESENCE OF GREATNESS             LP      10.2018
                (Note : LP , turquoise vinyl)

I was a bit of a Ric Menck, Paulie Chastain fan boy back in the early 90's. I loved
their twee pop bands Choo Choo Train, and the Springfields (amongst others). Velvet
Crush was the moment when they stopped messing about in flowerbeds and decided to
rock. Therefore my younger self was a bit horrified but if you like Big Star and
Teenage Fanclub there's much to enjoy here.
