“What got me involved in music in the first place was the punk, new wave explosion it changed my perception of being able to be in a band, it was the get up and give it a go attitude and see where it leads approach inspired me. Minimal experience but it didn’t matter it was the ideas that counted, this DIY approach got people involved in music who would not of thought of it before and got me into my first band THE ISAWS.
VENUS FLY TRAP came together after I had left a band called ATTRITION who were based in London at the time, I had done an album and toured UK/Holland with them, my first trip abroad with a band. Decided to move back to my native Northampton famous for BAUHAUS, ALAN MOORE and the film KINKY BOOTS, hooked up with my brother JOHN NOVAK (ISAWS, WHERES LISSE) and TONY BOOKER an x art school student, I had also studied at art school. The line-up has changed many times over the years, ANDY DENTON joined via local band CROWMAN, initially as the drummer and ended up playing guitar and has done for many years.
We have been described as “blade runner rock n roll with dark acidic shades”, we create dark sonic cinema for the mind, film noir, sci fi soundscapes that absorb post punk, electronica and meld joy division, doors, chemical brothers like melted wax crayon colours.
