VENOM P. STINGER were a simply overpowering Australian band from the late 80s and early 90s (post-SICK THINGS, pre-DIRTY THREE, and containing members of both); I was lucky enough to see them twice live in San Francisco & Los Angeles in a late, late incarnation of the band, but if I’d had my druthers I’d have seen the lineup that recorded the amazing “Walking About / 26 Milligrams” 45, which is easily one of the Top 200 singles that I know of. Well, this cool fella Kent from Iowa was kind enough to “friend” the Detailed Twang MySpace site this weekend, and right there on his page is the following YouTube video of “Walking About”. Wow! I dug a little deeper and there’s one on YouTube for “26 Milligrams” too – both are amazing. Now you can watch them both right here.
