Each track pays of homage to the original song, yet is infused with the perfect proportion of TVF’s unique sound and style. Below are a few quotes from some folks who had the opportunity to listen early:
“It’s always risky to do a an official release of covers, but in true The Venetia Fair fashion, the band doesn’t just do it well, they do it with a style and grace that surpasses expectations the theatrical rock outfit set with previous releases.”
– Christian Wagner / Absolute Punk
“The Venetia Fair have built a reputation for delivering material that keeps fans on their toes and they have once again outdone themselves with ‘…Basically Just Does Karaoke.’ From beginning to end, this release is a fun, wild, and entirely enjoyable adventure through updated versions of some of the best songs ever released.”
– James Shotwell / Under the Gun Review

About The Venetia Fair:
Once you hear The Venetia Fair, you won’t forget them. They approach rock music with theatrical flourishes and manic energy, their sonic palette featuring elements such as frenzied rag-time piano, over-the-top bombastic horns, and red-hot guitar licks.
Highly praised for their live show, the five men are possessed by some unknown energy. Their onstage mania has led to some injuries amongst the band members, but thus far nothing debilitating.
The Venetia Fair inspires borderline obsessions amongst their fanbase, so much so that the band was able to self-release their third album off the back of a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. The campaign shot past its fund-raising goal in 4 days, and the band recorded and released Every Sick, Disgusting Thought We’ve Got in Our Brain. The new album has gained some serious buzz, with Alternative Press, Absolute Punk, and PureVolume all agreeing that The Venetia Fair is a band that you need to know about right now. And more and more people are finding out about them each night, as the band causes mayhem on stages across the nation. And to be honest, the road is the best place for them anyways. If you leave them at home for too long, something might end up catching on fire.
