Biography

Gritty, dance-able surf punk. This all-girl trio creates a fast tempo, mostly instrumental party of sound that is influenced both by post-punk and classic surf rock music. The three serve up this sound with a highly energenic stage show, that will get you dancing. Venus in Furs teamed up just over a year ago - hitting the Madison rock scene full tilt, opening up for the likes of The Red Elvises, MEN, Bitch, and Knuckel Drager. The group continues to grow musically and in their diverse following.

Venus in Furs features Vic on guitar, Marlo on drums, and Nat on bass. Vic began playing guitar when she was five years old. She made the rounds on the ska/hardcore scene in Hartford, Conn. from 1995 through 2000 with Golgo 13, opening for bands such as Mustard Plug, Spring Heeled Jack, Reel Big Fish and The Skatelites.

Marlo has been banging on drum kits since she was a youth. She has been in several Chicago based bands in the past, and is excited about Venus in Furs' momentum.

In addition to having played bass and guitar with punk-metal groups Damidol and The New Original Chosen Evil, Nat also directs video, with notable projects including "Drown Out the Daylights", a documentary highlighting artists on the Madison-based label Crustacean Records.

Lyrics

Death of Disco

Written By: Nat

Sense of touch,
Sense of smell,
You've got something better.
Clenched fists in the blackest nights and you're
Not allowed to see her.

But we've got sex cola,
Sex jeans,
Persecution drugs for all your needs.
And we've got class - of the first world,
morals on loan from the third.

And the death of disco, is just a symptom,
of the times of change!
And the death of disco, is just a symptom,
of the times of change!

I'm here to tell. (The death of Disco)
I'm here to tell. (The death of Disco)
I'm here to tell. (The death of Disco)
I'm here to tell. (The death of Disco)
