Gypsyhawk bassist/vocalist Eric Harris comments:

“You won’t find a more charismatic band in their subgenre” – Decibel Magazine

“far more stylistic and musical flare than most, dancing madly backwards with the ghosts of classic Allman Brothers and Thin Lizzy while their dual-harmony axe-attack take care of business like Bachman-Turner Overdrive” – Zero Tolerence Magazine

“Pasadena’s Gypsyhawk deftly blend metallic guitars and fantasy/science-obsessed lyrics with a rock and roll boogie swagger” – LA Weekly

GWAR Announces Second Leg Of U.S. Tour

After spending months deep inside their arctic fortress working on what will be their next album, your Lords and Masters GWAR announced their return to the road in North America. The second leg of the “Fate or Chaos” tour is scheduled to kick off April 10 and will run through April 25. Support on the tour will come from Warbeast and Wilson. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 15.

Briefly putting down the crack pipe, lead throat thing Oderus Urungus spoke about going back on tour:

“As you humans amuse yourself with your mundane holidays, it has been a time of intense activity for GWAR, as we record our 13th studio album – the first one with our new Scumdog brother, Pustulus Maximus!”

The Filth-Lord continues,

“We begin this years festivities with the second and final leg of our Fate or Chaos tour, so everybody who missed the first leg can see Cyber-Jesus get his fucking ass handed to him. Then it’s back in the studio to work on all the hulking war machines we shall need on our devastating, brand-spanking new tour, after the album drops at the end of the summer! Can you believe I said drop? How fucking stupid!”

Oderus Urungus and Balsac the Jaws of Death, recently took New York by storm when they were in town filming a segment for the SyFy TV Show Oddities.

The guys were once again recruited by MTV’s Next Movie to give their critique of another Steven Spielberg directed, Oscar nominated film. Last time, they did a review for War Horse so it was fitting that Lincoln be next. Check out Oderus and Balsac’s review HERE.

The summer will also herald the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q, and this year is shaping-up to have the most colossal, bone-crushing line-up yet. But that’s not all from your toxic mutant under-lords. Rumors of boxed sets, GWAR-B-Q sauce, GWAR beer, and long-awaited “comedy” albums abound. Further details about all of these projects would have to wait until “we get our shit together”, said Oderus.

Destroy All Monsters

 JapanDestroy All Monsters (怪獣総進撃)1968

Marvelous, weird kaiju film — set in 1999, the narrator explains that all the world’s monsters have been gathered on Monster Island (WHAT A CLEVER NAME) where they are contained and observed. There’s an underground base where the scientists monitor the monsters.

Suddenly, an alien race attacks and takes over control of the monsters, as well as the minds of the personnel at the base. A cumbersome-looking spaceship is dispatched from the Moon to investigate. Eventually the “Kilaaks” introduce themselves and present their demands, basically a place to live on Earth. By this time, the monsters, under Kilaak control, have decimated most of the world’s major cities, so the aliens don’t get much of a hearing.

A Media Blasters DVD was released (at long last) in November of 2011 with the original Japanese version. It sold out quickly. It’s a pleasure to be able…

TheWrap.com: Monty Python Stars Reuniting for ‘Absolutely Anything’

image

Regardless of the motivation behind it, a reunion of grand proportions.

If we’re lucky, modern day equivalent, Dave Chappelle will be inspired to return to greatness with his PC destruction.

And while British humor is undoubtedly an acquired taste, comedy legends Monty Python are – without question – pioneers of the genre.

Let’s hope Eric Idle joins the gang!
