Conspiracy is a band out of tiie unlikely city of Venice, Florida. The members are James (vocals), Walt (drums), Mike (guitar) and Jay (bass). This young band shows a helluva lot of promise, already securing an enthusiastic following in their hometown. Their music, deemed punk by some, alternative i^ others, is done from the heart. Their demo tape. Lack ofSociety, was recorded at Dan Destructo's (No Fraud's front man) Truth Studios and it really caught my attention. After several attempts at coordinating an interview, I finally hooked up with 3/4 of the band. The missing conspirator was Jay. Without a doubt, ConspiraQ^ is out to getcha with some of the tastiest tracks to come across the Skyway Bridge since No Fraud.
