With a grim appeal of darkened noise that's accompanied by a flowing of sense of bleak, electronic rhythm, Venus Fly Trap have been haunting their hometown of Northhampton England since the mid-1980's. Debuting with their first mini-album Mars in 1988, the band also released a hand full of singles and compilation tracks between 1987 to 1989. Following their next two albums Totem (1991) and Pandora's Box (1991), Alex Novak (vocals), Neil Ridley (bass), Gary Lennon (guitar), and Andy Denton (drums) would embark on a number of European tours in support of their releases; one of which resulted in the live album Jewel- Live in Prague. After their second mini-album Shedding Another Skin in 1992, Venus Fly Trap's added a combination of metal overtones with a lyrical content of drugs, urban decay, "Zen and space travel" is found on their 1994 album Luna Tide.
