"VENOM P STINGER were born out of the mid eighties post Birthday Party Melbourne music scene, the original members had come from bands Sick Things, Fungus Brains, People with chairs up their noses, Moodists, Beach Nuts, Orchestra skin and bone to name a few. They played from 1985 until the early nineties. Members included Jim White (drums), Mick Turner (guitar) both later of Dirty Three, and Dugald McKenzie (vocals, sadly departed) and Alan Secher-Jensen (bass). the music a kind of intense slight jazz inflicted punk, brought back to life here with Tim Evans (Bird Blobs) on vocal and Shahzad Ismaily on bass." - All Tomorrow's Parties
