Mike Vennart Had A Lot Of Fun With The Demon Joke

(Prog) Mike Vennart is delighted that having the freedom to do what he wanted on solo album The Demon Joke. The former Oceansize man released the record in June via Superball Music and issued videos for the tracks Operate, Retaliate and a lyric promo for Don't Forget The Joker.

Vennart tells Music Radar: "I'd had a hankering to do something a little more egocentric because Oceansize was very much a collaborative, painfully f***ing democratic collective. It was a lot of fun in that respect: a very creative environment, but there were some things that were absolutely out of the question."

He continues: "I'm from a trained metal, prog rock background and I wanted to fling a bit of that in, so there's quite a lot of shredding in it - but it's in a very ridiculous, sh*tty-sounding way." Read more here.
