Venomous Concept

Biography :

Venomous Concept is a hardcore punk band; the name itself is a play on Poison Idea.

History :

The history of Venomous Concept can be dated back to 1989 when Shane Embury and Kevin Sharp first met in New York City when Napalm Death were asked to play a show as part of the city’s annual music/arts festival week at legendary club CBGB’s. Their friendship started at St.Marks Pizza parlour around the corner.

In February 2004 Kevin happened to be the tour driver of Napalm Death on “The Art of Noise” tour with Nile, Strapping Young Lad, Dark Tranquillity and The Berzerker. Shane and Kevin had lost touch in the years between, but "some beers, pizza and old vinyl classics by Poison Idea, Black Flag and Systematic Death" renewed their friendship. They decided to start a band together. They recruited Buzz Osborne of The Melvins on guitar and Napalm Death’s Danny Herrera on drums and recorded their debut Retroactive Abortion (2004) on Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings.
