The Venetians

The Venetians has been played on NTS shows including Okonkole Y Trompa , with Son Sur Son first played on 28 February 2018.

The Venetians formed in late 1982, when Rik Swinn (lead vocalist) arrived in Australia with a 24-track master demo of a song he'd recorded in England. He read a newspaper advert placed by two musicians looking for a lead singer. Within weeks, Swinn hooked up with Dave Skeet (guitar and vocals), Matthew Hughes (keyboards), Peter Watson (bass guitar) and Tim Powles (drums) to form Venetians.

"The chemistry was definitely there from the beginning," says Swinn.
