gwar-av-club

The scumdogs of the universe, GWAR and their newest members hit the A.V. Club for their annual Undercover Series. This group features artists covering other artists work. This year, GWAR covers the 80’s tune, ‘West End Girls’ by the Pet Shop Boys. Check out all the details below.

From The Press Release

For the third year in a row, your Lords and Masters GWAR return to The A.V. Club to take part in the A.V. Undercover Series. The A.V. Undercover Series features artists covering other artists’ music. GWAR’s first offering tackled the Kansas classic, “Carry on Wayward Son” – which was voted favorite performance of the year, to no surprise of GWAR. After a year of celebrating the victory, the group returned to defend the crown with its unique spin on Billy Ocean’s “Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car.” The result? Back-to-back favorite performance titles.

GWAR has now returned for a third time to The A.V. Club. With new Scumdog warriors Blóthar and Vulvatron by its side, GWAR takes on the Pet Shop Boys classic “West End Girls” in what is no doubt the most head-scratching followed by headbanging cover yet! Kneel before your overlords and watch them go New Wave HERE. Then remember to vote early and often for GWAR because the Scumdogs command you to do so!

A.V. Club VP/Editor in Chief Josh Modell had the following to say about GWAR’s return visit:

“GWAR once again descended on The A.V. Club office unannounced, demanding to play a song. They threatened to eat our children and drink all our booze–and then made good on that threat.”

GWAR is off on a journey to find their departed brother Oderus Urungus using every resource available – including new Scumdogs Blóthar and Vulvatron. GWAR will enlist the help of even the lowliest Bohab as its enemies plot to take advantage of the hole in GWAR’s ranks. That being said, Bohabs, look at the dates below and see when it is your time to come worship the mighty GWAR!!!
