This Is GWAR documentary director Scott Barber, filmmaker Tommy Avallone, and GWAR bandmembers bassist/singer Michael Bishop aka Blothar The Beserker and drummer Brad Roberts aka Jizmak Da Gusha talk about the making of the new doc streaming now on Shudder and AMC+. They share stories about GWAR’s early days including what inspired their elaborate stage costumes and props, and the infamous spew. They detail what it takes to design and make everything, how they travel with it all when touring, and why it originally prevented them from getting booked on festivals! They explain the impact that MTV and Mike Judge’s “Beavis & Butthead” animated series had on the band’s success and longevity. And they reveal how they’ve managed to stay together for 30 years despite the loss of bandmembers including their leader and singer Dave Brockie who passed away in 2014. They talk about the brotherhood of GWAR, why they consider themselves an art collective as opposed to a band, and how the demise of hair metal and emergence of grunge actually worked in their favor. Plus, they discuss GWAR’s future and future projects which may or may not include a feature film!
