Album Notes
A new band composed of Annie and Danny from the Soviettes. Annie plays bass instead of guitar and sing and Danny plays drums, sings and is responsible for various electronica/turntablism/sampling touch during and in between songs. P.O.S. of Rhymesayers Entertainment/Doomtree is drops dope rhymes on track 14. Eat it up.

The Onion

The logic and genius of the concept is beyond reproach
A bass-and-drums duo from Minneapolis, Danny Snakes and Annie Awesome write gritty, lo-fi punk songs about snakes and things that are awesome. The logic and genius of the concept is beyond reproach; the fuzzy melodies, screeching vocals, and power-pop choruses are even better.

Lo-fi, furious, primal garage-rock voodoo
Lo-fi, furious, primal garage-rock voodoo...exciting and effed-up that makes most of this year’s releases on Fat Possum redundant.

Tim Thompson, Rick's Cafe

snakes really do kick ass
But aside from the impudence and witty lyrics, the music is so gritty, so gnarly, so banging that they convinced me that snakes really do kick ass and that I should like them and if I don't I'm a fucking asshole.

Pulse of the Twin Cities

you can just tell they’re having an absolute blast making this music
"How this band managed to stay off the “Snakes on a Plane” soundtrack, I’ll never understand. With nine songs with “snake” in the title and five songs with “awesome” in the title, Venom is a kind of concept album, but only if you consider doodling band names on your Pre-Algebra notebook in eighth grade a unifying theme.

With the Soviettes on indefinite hiatus, Annie and Danny have put a together a gratifyingly gritty cup of vodka lemonade whose mix of stripped-down punk rockets and sampled bits of dialogue delivers all the heaviness of Death From Above ’79 without any of the art school pretensions. As the liner notes indicate, Annie “guitars the bass” here, meaning plenty of overdrive and plenty of space for Danny’s inspired rants on everything from a party at the Little Ceasar’s on East Lake Street to the ridiculousness of trying to get a plaid snake. Add to that Annie spelling out “A-W-E-S-O-M-E—AWESOME! A-W-E-S-O-M-E S-N-A-K-E-S—SNAKES!” at the top of her lungs and you can just tell they’re having an absolute blast making this music. With 15 tracks clocking in at just under 24 minutes, it’s a tight and virtually flawless little package. The inclusion of tracks like “Snakes vs. Jerks,” wherein a clip of someone saying “snakes” is amateurishly cut in to replace the word “animals” in a Dr. Doolittle-esque song from the ’50s, keeps the mood light and breaks up some of the sameness that could result from an unrelenting bass/drums assault. Plus, turning over the reins to P.O.S. for a track is never a bad idea: He’s like the Magic Johnson of featured guests, making everyone better. These are the kind of motherfucking snakes you want on your motherfucking plane."---Steven McPherson
