VENUS FLY TRAP-“Electro – Post Punk”

“The Venus Fly Trap – “Time Lapse 1989 – 1994”
This is the true avant-garde sound, but it came about when the term no longer had the impact it had in the early eighties. Compilation that seeks the most emblematic moments of the three albums (“Totem”, “Pandora’s Box” and “Luna Tide”) edited in the period indicated by the title. Post-punk, gothic rock and a dose of experimentalism that make us have a set of songs that is both dated and emblematic of a genre that has a very specific spirit. For fans of the band and especially for fans of the genre.”
7/10-Fernando Ferreira/WOM

“Another band with Sci-fi leanings are Northampton’s darkwave duo VENUS FLY TRAP. Like an uninvited guest they knock on your cranium with insanely catchy riffs and once inside they’re not leaving. Opening with their 1986 debut single, the addictive ‘Morphine’, vocalist Alex Novak and guitarist Andy Denton share an undeniable chemistry as a punchy ‘Sabotage’ follows along with the car crash that is ‘James Dean’. Latest single ‘Vitesse’ gets an airing and, despite the decades that separate these songs, it’s a really cohesive gig. Two choice covers close their set, first Suicides ‘Rocket USA’ and then the Cramps ‘Human Fly’. VFT have been quite active recently and it’s paying off with some really tight performances and tonight’s gig makes them many new admirers.”
