Mucous Membrane (1977-1979) 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 in and around London. Their one single, 'Venus of the Hard Sell' (for which this music video was made) was released in 1978 by the now defunct record label, 'S'not Music. Though it was the band's best known song, it did not do well as a single. Soon after the band disbanded in 1979, singer John Constantine was committed to the Ravenscar Secure Facility after having suffered a psychological breakdown as a result of an unconfirmed and questionable "supernatural event" that resulted in the deaths of the Casanova Club's owner, Alex Logue, and his young daughter, Astra, and other associates of Logue.

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.
