Deer Venom - trashy punk project and the Official cut and past video for "Not Today"

Deer Venom is the Seattle based post punk project of Mario Barbetta. The track Not Today is a stunning piece of beautifully trashy art rock pushed through punk, industrial and glam filters crossing diverse decades and sounds from the base elements of bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, Blur, the Breeders, NIN, the New York Dolls and the Sex Pistols. Sprinkle unbridled fun and a wink and you have Deer Venom.

Barbetta created the solo project in 2010 and from 2013 to 2017 played a series of shows with bassist Brain Salvage and drummer Stefan Myers (as well as drummer Radford Mason). In the summer of 2017 Barbetta along with drummer Mike Stone recorded the first official debut EP entitled simply "Deer Venom" released early this year.

The official video is a cut and paste kitschy art punk affair created by produced by LIVE EYE TV. No
