DEATH VALLEY GIRLS – ” Street Venom ” Reissue

Death Valley Girls Share Brand New Video For 'Sanitarium Blues'

Garage punk trio Death Valley Girls have always held a place in my hear, especially “Street Venom” originally release in 2014 through Burger Records. The energy is on full force on this record which is their defining sound. They sound just as fuzzy, gritty and joyous, “creating a sound that was both riotous and transcendental, brimming with positivity even as it navigated dark melodies and rowdy riffs.”

Three variants exist, 200 being the “Eye of the Beholder” [SOLD OUT] which looks like a split colour splatter, 300 being “Full Moon Fever” which has a copper splatter mockup, and then 1500 which will go to retailers called “Satan’s Finger” which didn’t have a mockup. Grab them while you can.

With a name like Death Valley, one would assume early cartographers were actively deterring people from its boundaries. It’s now recognized as an ecosystem with its own unique beauty and wonder, though it’s not without its element of danger. That landscape is a fitting reference for LA’s blazing rock troupe Death Valley Girls, whose particular blend of garage punk, proto-metal, and communal music drapes an air of occult mystery and white-hot energy over an underlying celebration of life and vitality. Their 2020 album Under the Spell of Joy was the clearest distillation of the band’s ongoing mission—creating a sound that was both riotous and transcendental, brimming with positivity even as it navigated dark melodies and rowdy riffs. That said, Death Valley Girls felt fully realized the moment they appeared on the scene and never lost track of their initial daredevil energy. Their debut album, 2014’s Street Venom, was given only a modest roll-out consisting of a small run of cassettes, but the songs were so infectious that they continue to be staples in the band’s live set. For the first time, Street Venom is receiving its proper due with a Deluxe Edition courtesy of Suicide Squeeze Records.
