Overview:Legends of the Golden Venus - In the hey day of the sixties, the Golden Venus (a now defunct night-club) hosted its regular tea dances that attracted some of Singapore's best (and notorious) rock 'n' roll, blues and R&B bands ever, including the Checkmates, the Quests, the Straydogs, Pests Infested, Fried Ice, High Ground, Rotten Bodies and Barbed Wire. These bands pioneered Singapore's live music scene in the sixties -they opened shows for one another, jammed together, stole each other's gigs, and shared their treasured 45s and Fender amps. Most importantly, they blazed a trail of bold and rocking music that drew from the British Invasion, Woodstock, and the sixties folk revival. This book documents a lost era and gives due credit to some of the bands and musicians who were responsible. Joseph Pereira has assembled a fascinating compilation of interviews, commentary, and photographs to tell the story of the pioneering local musicians of Singapore. This is history, music, and nostalgia with the amplifier cranked to 10!
