Originally released in 1993, and recorded in a disused Masonic Lodge in Dunedin, The 3Ds’ second full-length album, The Venus Trail, has all the insanity, silliness, and in-your-face guitar blasts from the band's earlier releases.
The album’s swarm of gruesome guitar tunes makes it an immediate attention grabber, and the songs are well balanced by rock solid lead vocals that pull the wayward free-for-all toward some semblance of melodic order.
The 3Ds are a supergroup of sorts; made up of members from Look Blue Go Purple, Snapper, Bird Nest Roys, Exploding Budgies and Goblin Mix. Starting off as three ‘D’ members; Denise Roughan, David Saunders and Dominic Stones, they were very quickly joined by a fourth ‘D’ — David Mitchell. Despite the supergroup status, the band didn't originally intend to be anything more than a casual good-time band, hanging around for some drinks and laughs.
With 1992’s Hellzapoppin firmly assuring the band’s place in what was now called ‘alternative music’, their sophomore album, The Venus Trail, became the joyous peak of The 3Ds journey; the cross-over of noise and pop found its home.
