Fast Five: The Venetia Fair

Triangle

How did you meet and what’s the story behind your band name?

We stole the band name from a band called The Venetia Fair. They were going to sue us but we told them not to and we’re all very tall so they were scared. Then we stole all of their instruments and songs. That band was named after Venetia Phair, a dead lady who named the former planet Pluto. We all met on Pluto so we decided to keep the name once we stole it. We were very successful space men in our day.

How would you describe your music?

Our music is what happens when you take 5 people that love music, and force them to make music until they hate music. Music has slowly been ruining our lives since we started. We now hate everything, including music and life. I think our music sounds a lot like that.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

We’ve were hiding off the grid (OTG) for pretty much all of last year. We spent that time writing hits and then throwing them out and writing new hits. Life was very boring. Then, a Christmas miracle happened and we finally recorded it. Then we came back on the grid (OTG). We came back OTG hard. During the upcoming months, you can expect us to sell millions upon millions of copies of the album we just released. It’s called “Every Sick, Disgusting Thought We’ve Got in Our Brain”. It’s a great album. Also, you can expect us to be touring all of the time and having a lot of fun. The summer is coming so we’ll probably get really, really tan and handsome.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Well… I play bass…

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

I would take “The B-52’s” by The B-52’s because that’s the album they released in 1979 that had Rock Lobster on it. That’s a great song. I’d like to listen to it forever. Plus, it’s about the beach and the ocean and stuff so it would be like Fred and Katie and Cindy were all singing to me!
