Pocket Venus existed in the early 2000s and despite their beautiful songs they had a real destructive punk rock attitude when it came to live performances. Big headed, arrogant, abusive, they trashed stages and started fights wherever they went. The strength of their songs piqued the interest of Radio One and record labels, with their debut single Through Your Day twice getting daytime airplay thanks to Mark & Lard. They eventually imploded to the eve of a showcase in London, where all the major and indie labels had booked tickets to see the band.
Tonight’s show includes an archive session recorded for Adam Walton’s BBC Radio Wales Show in January 2001.
