Mucous Membrane (1,977-1,979) were a not so legendary punk band founded by songwriters John Constantine (vocals) and Gary Lester (guitar). Rounding out the band were 'Les' on the bass, and 'Beano' on drums. They played most notably at The Casanova Club in Newcastle, and around London, as well. Their one single, 'Venus of the Hardsell' (for which this music video was made) was released in 1,978 by the defunct record label, 'S'not Music. Though it was the band's best known song, it didn't do very well as a single. Soon after they disbanded in 1,979, singer John Constantine was committed to the Ravenscar Secure Facility after having gone insane as a result of an unconfirmed questionable supernatural event that unfortunately resulted in the deaths of the Casanova Club's owner, Alex Logue, and his young daughter, Astra.
Now mostly forgotten, the band's rumored connections with the occult have proven to be of interest to all types of journalists and documentary film makers.
