The Venus Reaction
Over the last decade, David Donley - project co-ordinator, writer, multi-instrumentalist, producer - has toured the UK and Europe as a drummer with Glen Matlock & The Philistines, Bassist for Woody Woodmansey's Holy Holy, and made innumerable session appearances on drums or guitar with artists such as Willie Nile, Sham 69, Adam Ant and Atlantic Machine.
David has also provided the soundtracks for two films, Silver Lining (2003) and the soon to be released Messed Up Kids (2017).
Limited to 500 copies worldwide on ultra-clear vinyl The Venus Reaction’s double A-side single offers all out rock with an affectionate nod to the melodic Punk of the late 1970s.
Featuring Amie Conradine (Evarane) on vocals, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols/Rich Kids) on bass, Ed Graham(The Darkness) on drums and project leader/producer David Donley on guitar.
Mixed by Jim Lowe (Stereophonics) and mastered by John Davis (White Lies/Led Zeppelin)
This is a one-off release with no supporting live dates or
accompanying album. The Venus Reaction are a perfect Rock band playing heavy
Rock and Roll on the 7" vinyl format it was made for.
David - " A psychiatrist friend once told me that, whether it was irrational behaviour or simply making mistakes purely because you can't stop thinking about something or someone you're in love with, the slang term he used was 'The Venus Reaction'. Basically if you're driven slightly mad by love then you are the victim of 'The Venus Reaction'."
