Venom P. Stinger Biography (Wikipedia)

Venom P. Stinger were an Australian noise rock band, formed in 1985. The original line-up was Dugald MacKenzie on lead vocals, Alan Secher-Jensen on bass guitar, Mick Turner on guitar, and Jim White on drums. They disbanded in 1988 and reformed two years later, they disbanded again in 1996. The group issued three albums, Meet My Friend Venom (January 1987), What's Yours Is Mine (October 1990) and Tear Bucket (1996). Australian musicologist, Ian McFarlane, observed, "[they] took the experimental avant-garde route to its logical conclusion with an unnerving sound that thrived on raw energy, a complex rhythmic base and unconventional song structures."

Turner and White joined violinist, Warren Ellis, to form a post-rock band, Dirty Three in 1992. Dugald MacKenzie died of cancer in October 2004 and Alan Secher-Jensen died in May 2019.
