Информация о артисте

Миллионы лет назад шайка космических пиратов в качестве наказания за свои преступления была депортирована на Землю. Здесь бандиты тоже порядком напроказничали (истребили динозавров, затопили Атлантиду и т.п.), вследствие чего их сослали в Антарктиду, где они торчали до тех пор, пока на горизонте не появился представитель "Capitalist Records" Слизи Мартини. Он вытащил шайку изо льдов, привез в Нью-Йорк, снабдил электрогитарами и создал с их участием крутейшее рок-н-ролльное шоу. В отличие от этой "официальной" версии появления "Gwar" дело обстояло несколько иначе. Проект получился эволюционным путем из панк-группы "Death Piggy", возглавляемой вокалистом Дэйвом Броки. Основной причиной смены названия (а позже и стиля) стало использование музыкантами костюмов инопланетных страшилищ, а также появление на сцене персонажей под кличками Oderus Urungus, Johnny Slutman, BalSac, Jaws of Death и т.п.

Коллектив образовался в 1985 году, но прошло еще около трех лет, прежде чем увидел свет дебютный альбом. За это время "Gwar" сколотили себе приличную армию фанатов, чему в первую очередь способствовали их "кровожадные" шоу с бутафорской расчлененкой, поливанием зрителей подозрительной жидкостью и прочими "мерзостями". Текучка кадров была для группы обычным явлением, но к 1988 году в составе сформировалось ядро из Дэйва Броки (Oderus Urungus; вокал), Дьюи Ровелла (Flattus Maximus; гитара), Майка Деркса (Balsac the Jaws of Death; гитара) и Майкла Бишопа (Beefcake the Mighty; бас).

Gwar Дебютный альбом, замешанный на хардкоровой основе и страдающий от отвратительного саунд-продюса, в отличие от публичных выступлений успеха не имел, и поэтому, начиная со следующего года, команда организовала регулярный выпуск своих концертов, записанных на видео. В 1990-м группа получила прописку на лейбле "Metal Blade" и соответственно ее звучание заметно металлизировалось. Одерус Урунгус и компания двинулись в трэшевом направлении, но при этом никогда не забывали о своих панковских корнях. Альбом "Scumdogs Of The Universe" раскупался куда охотнее, чем первобытный "Hell-O!", да и последующие релизы имели неплохой успех. Тем не менее, концерты "Gwar" постоянно сопровождались скандалами. Один из наиболее известных случаев произошел в Северной Каролине, когда полиция ворвалась на сцену и отобрала у Броки камуфляжный пенис.

Впрочем, вокалист решил своеобразно отстаивать свои права, и эта история легла в основу концептуального альбома "America Must Be Destroyed". Если в музыкальном плане данная работа представляла микс из рок-н-ролла и трэша, то следующий лонгплей можно было охарактеризовать как "Faith No More" встречаются с Фрэнком Заппой. К тому моменту команда обрела постоянного барабанщика в лице Брэда Роберта (Jizmak Da Gusha), а место Ровелла занял сохранивший его псевдоним Пит Ли.

Gwar Если в первой половине 90-х группа имела некоторый успех в мэйнстриме и ее клипы крутились по MTV, то, начиная с альбома "Ragnarok" "космические пришельцы" настолько погрузились в эксперименты со звуком, что вновь ввергли себя в андеграунд. В ассортименте группы появились клавиши и дополнительные вокалисты, а среди жанровых ингредиентов присутствовали не только хэви-метал и хардкор, но также кантри и джаз. В конце 90-х ушли Бишоп и Ли, и если место басиста сразу занял Кэйси Орр, то прежде чем на должность Flattus Maximus заступил Кори Смут, на ней побывали Тим Харрис и Зак Блэйр. Пропанковская пластинка "We Kill Everything" вызвала недовольство у большинства членов "Gwar", и третье тысячелетие команда начала с откровенно трэшевого опуса "Violence Has Arrived".

Данный альбом ознаменовал окончание сотрудничества с "Metal Blade", и следующий компакт был издан под флагом "DRT Entertainment". На "War Party" команда сохранила тяжелое звучание, но повысила техничность исполнения и включила в меню множество политизированных текстов, чем заслужила немало лестных откликов. Десятое творение "Gwar" было анонсировано как рок-опера, повествующая о путешествие группы в ад. На самом деле "Beyond Hell" являлся просто концептуальным трэшевым альбомом, включавшим в себя кавер "Alice Cooper" "School's Out". Одиннадцатый студийник "монстров" из Ричмонда вышел в августе 2009-го, причем за его издание вновь отвечала фирма "Metal Blade". Read more on Last.fm.

GWAR is a satirical thrash metal/punk band formed in 1985-1986 by a group of artists and musicians at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. The band is perhaps best known for their elaborate sci-fi/horror film inspired costumes, raunchy lyrics, and graphic stage performances, which can consist of scatology, sadomasochism, necrophilia, paedo-necrophilia, beastio-necrophilia, fire dancing, fake pagan rituals, mock executions/mutilations, and other controversial violent and political themes. GWAR was, for a long time, on the leading edge of shock rock, going as far as appearing on Jerry Springer in character and in full costume during the mid-1990s.

The band was the result of the collaboration between Hunter Jackson and Dave Brockie, then the singer for a punk band called Death Piggy. Jackson was working on a movie at the time the two met. The movie, entitled Scumdogs of the Universe, featured a plot involving terrifying intergalactic barbarians. Jackson and Brockie combined their ideas, re-named the band Gwar, and have been performing as ghoulish intergalactic warriors ever since. Their costumes are generally made of foam latex, styrofoam, and hardened rubber. It should be noted that the costumes they are wearing actually cover very little with the rest of their bodies being accentuated with makeup. They further their production in concert by dousing, spraying, and at times nearly drowning their audiences with imitation blood, semen, gore, and other bodily fluids. All the fluids are made of water and dye that washes out easily. It is rumored that corn syrup or a similar product has been used as a thickener.

Another trademark of GWAR's live show is their mutilations of celebrities and figures in current events. Victims of GWAR's antics have included O.J. Simpson, George W. Bush, Paris Hilton, and many others. The band also makes frequent references to political and historical figures, fantasy literature, and mythology. For instance, the song "Whargoul" makes reference to Minas Morgul, a setting in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings books; and the title of their sixth album, Ragnarok, comes from Norse mythology.

GWAR, though by no means a small-time band, have not enjoyed as much mainstream recognition as many other bands. Around the time of their second album (Scumdogs of the Universe), they enjoyed a fair deal of success, due in part to Beavis and Butt-head. After that, however, GWAR's popularity waned and they were even featured on the VH1 program "Where Are They Now." Though not at the peak of their popularity, GWAR was recently invited to play on the Sounds of the Underground tour, which was very well received.

Gwar were, at one time, banned from performing in their home city of Richmond, Virginia due to their raucous stage performances. During that time they would appear in their home town under the pseudonym Rawg and play sans costumes. The ban was later lifted and the band can now play in Richmond again in full gory attire. GWAR was banned earlier in North Carolina for obscenity reasons (Brockie was arrested for wearing his "Cuttlefish of Cthulu" prosthetic penis; this incident was the inspiration for GWAR's America Must Be Destroyed album). Band members and associates often have cookouts at their house, dubbed "Gwar-BQ's." The video for "Saddam a Go-Go" from This Toilet Earth appeared in the hit movie Empire Records. Gwar was/is primarily a band of former art students, and this is reflected in the obscure references made in some of their songs. Gwar fans are known as Bohabs or Scumdogs.

The origin and meaning of the band's name has been left intentionally vague by its members, although the most widely accepted explanation (though false and denied by the band members) is that GWAR is an acronym for "God What an Awful Racket!" One rumor states that the name may have come from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' graphic novel Watchmen, in which a poster reads, "Pink Triangle LIVE at the Gay Women Against Rape Benefit Concert." Other unsubstantiated rumors state that GWAR! is the sound monsters make in old horror movies, or that a fan at a club yelled "You should call your band..." and vomited before he could finish, making a sound close to the word GWAR. A final possibility, and the most viable as of yet, coming from sources close to the band suggests strongly that the name comes from the answer David Brockie gave to Hunter Jackson when asked what the band should be called. David Brockie simply responded with a mostly unintelligble word and isolated a single sound out of the rubble therefore creating GWAR.

On Sunday March 23, 2014, Brockie was found dead in his apartment by a band member. According to police, Brockie was found deceased and sitting upright in a chair. Foul play, drugs, and suicide have been ruled out as causes of death and they will await word from a medical examiner on the cause.
Gwar's management confirmed the reports of Brockie's death on the official Gwar website at 4am on March 24, 2014. In an official statement released later that day, Gwar's manager Jack Flanagan said "It is with a saddened heart, that I confirm my dear friend Dave Brockie, artist, musician, and lead singer of GWAR passed away at approximately 6:50 PM EST Sunday March 23, 2014. His body was found Sunday by his band mate at his home in Richmond, VA. Richmond authorities have confirmed his death and next of kin has been notified. A full autopsy will be performed. He was 50 years old, born August 30, 1963. My main focus right now is to look after my band mates and his family. More information regarding his death shall be released as the details are confirmed." News of Brockie's death spread quickly with many of his fellow musical peers and bandmates responding through social media.
Mike Bishop, former member of Gwar, was one of the first to confirm Brockie's death. Bishop said "Dave was one of the funniest, smartest, most creative and energetic persons I've known. He was brash sometimes, always crass, irreverent, he was hilarious in every way. But he was also deeply intelligent and interested in life, history, politics and art. His penchant for scatological humors belied a lucid wit. He was a criminally underrated lyricist and hard rock vocalist, one of the best, ever! A great front man, a great painter, writer, he was also a hell of a bass guitarist. I loved him. He was capable of great empathy and had a real sense of justice.”
