|The live assault of GWAR is back!|
When Dave Brockie --the human avatar of GWAR's hideous, hilarious front-thing, Oderus Urungus -- passed away last year, it was only natural that many fans assumed that it would be curtains for the band. After more than 30 years of blasting worldwide audiences with various bodily fluids, GWAR's face, voice, and only constant member was no more. Who on Earth could fill his shoes?
No one, of course. But maybe two! At Brockie's epic Viking funeral earlier this year, GWAR raised eyebrows by debuting a new singer: the fetid Blothar, an ancient Scumdog warrior only recently thawed who belts out the band's heavy-metal ditties wearing the carapace of a spectral moon moose. But in September, they really popped some eyeballs out of skulls with the introduction of a new front woman: the busty, beastly Vulvatron!
Tonight, Vulvatron, Blothar, and the rest of the Scumdog army will invade Skyway Theatre, giving Minneapolis its first taste of the legendary group since Oderus's disappearance from this plane of existence. Gimme Noise took the big risk of calling up the blood-spewing Amazon to ask what we can expect.More »
