Remember that time when Rhea and I went on a hot date to see GWAR in Joliet, Illinois and we got completely drenched in blood? Well, before the blood drenching part, I was lucky enough to interview Oderus Urungus, Balzac, and Sawborg Destructo for a feature i was doing for HEAVY magazine. This is the results! Four pages dedicated to Antarctica’s greatest metal band. Available right around Australia from today. Support your starving journalist and buy a copy today. Thanks mate!
Ok, the new issue of HEAVY goes on sale on Monday at newsagents around the country. This is the cover. I have a bunch of stuff in this issue including the cover story on STEEL PANTHER, interviews with Baroness, Kreator, The Hard-Ons, and my huge article on the history of GWAR. Plus there is my Unveiling The Wicked column on great vinyl finds around the globe. There’s tons of great stuff in here. Please support your local journalist and get yourself a copy.
One of the best gigs I went to while in the USA was seeing GWAR with Rhea in Joliet, Illinois. Not only were we granted AAA to interview the band before show on their tour bus, but I was also given a photo pass to snap photos for the magazine I work for. I have been spending the last week finishing up this interview. This is one of the more informative pieces I have written as they gave us full access to the behind the scenes of the Slavepit Enterprises. Was a most awesome day. The band kicked ass too! Was such a fantastic show.
The photo is how red my hand was after the show because we both got completely drenched in blood.
Saw GWAR tonight. Fuckin’ awesome! Interviewed 3 of the members and was able to get some rad snapshots.
Tomorrow I am heading to Joliet to interview GWAR and then I will enjoy the sounds of Ghoul and Municipal Waste before being drenched in blood and pus by GWAR. Life’s tough. This USA trip so far is getting 2 thumbs up.
Seeing these guys in Illinois, March 25th, with Municipal Waste and Ghoul. Nice!!! My trip to the USA is shaping up nicely.
GWAR in comic book form. Yep. No idea where I got this or how I ended up with it but hey, it’s GWAR!
