Bio

Raucous Melbourne outfit The Hidden Venture summon up a Goliath-like sound as they deliver their take on the true essence of rock. Inspired in equal parts by the stoner riffs of Californian desert rock, the guitar wizardry of Hendrix and also every soul singer who had a story to tell, the band are not known for holding anything back. Their music serves up soaring vocal harmonies and blistering guitar freak-outs underpinned by a relentless rhythmic drive. Their live shows see both the band and audience sweating it out as the muscular rhythms and edgy guitars take over. With their fearless spontaneity, expect anything to happen as the soulful vocals give way to alternating waves of psychedelic guitar and twisted riffs. Once The Hidden Venture have plugged in, you’ll know that things are bound to get wild with an adrenalin fuelled night that will leave the punters howling for more.

If you're wondering where all the blood and bluster from rock music went, you owe it to your starved ears to spin this. There's lashings of QOTSA in the vocals, Muse's guitar squalls, and plenty of sneering attitude. Ace.

It's so lothario-rock you almost expect to hear Mike Patton, instead we get the equally charming sleaze of Dan Fox. Muscular yet inviting.

Not so much coloured by Queens of the Stone Age, as it is positively indebted to it. I wouldn't call it imitation though, but a dizzying inspiration of stoner rock riffs.
