Frontman Oderus Urungus has offered advice on how to survive a Gwar show, according to Calgary's Metro. Here are a few excerpts from the article:
“The best way to survive one of our shows is probably to just not go,” warns Oderus Urungus, front-thing for heavy metal space mutants Gwar, the self-proclaimed, “most titanic, apocalyptic, loudest, smelliest and disgusting rock 'n' roll band in history.”
What To Wear:
It all depends on your desired outcome. Want to be a target for mayhem? Stuck for a last-minute Halloween costume? Wear something crisply white and head for centre stage. With their endless dousing of carnage, you're sure to come out making Regan MacNeil from The Exorcist look like the “After” side of a detergent commercial.
What To Bring:
A healthy sense of humour (political incorrectness is a plus for reasons we can't divulge), a strong stomach and a change of clothes. And earplugs.
What Not To Say:
How many times you've seen them. At least not to the band, as Urungus takes it as an affront, thinking the band kills the entire crowd nightly. When fans claim attending multiple shows he cries, “How the hell did that happen? I thought we killed everybody.” Alternately, avoid comparing Gwar to other costumed rock bands (Lordi, Mushroomhead or even KISS) to fans. That might get you impaled for real.
What To Do:
Again, it hinges on your intended experience. Step up front for an interactive encounter including stage diving, moshing, curse-laden taunting from Urungus and refreshing gore sprayed constantly. For the voyeur, stay well back and enjoy the massacre of various puppets/papier-mâché creations.
