No idea what happened to Venus. All I know is they had a single and a few comp tracks.

I am Venus's uncle. I can tell you that Venus has not pursed a music career. She is a Physical Education teacher for a high school in the Long Beach Unified School District. She is a great talent a great person. Thanks so much for asking about her!!!

Wow, who'da thunk anyone remembered Unit 3....

I spoke to Rodney Bingenheimer about a year ago when I saw him at Canters restaurant in H'wood...asked him about this band. He said "well, Venus grew up...that's all there is to it."

I've only heard the two songs on the "Rodney On the ROQ" comps, will any of ever be reissued? In a similar vein, there was an LA punk in the early 80s called Mad Society that had a really young singer, anybody remember them?
