robertus: Cerebral Knievel: Gunny Highway: frepnog: Gunny Highway: Their early albums have an awesome punk sound (I dont know if you like punk) and are great.

i have been a GWAR fan, since, well, since GWAR became a thing.  I wouldn't call anything they ever did "punk".  Their early records were more a "we don't really know how to play our instruments" kind of sound that evolved into a sort of metal.

GOR GOR!

Fair enough.  The Death Piggy album I heard had a punk sound but maybe it is more of that "we dont really know" thing again.

/I really like that "dont know" sound.

*sigh*...

You've apperntly never had the Legend Brewery BB brown ale or Barleywine have you?

listen... I'm one of the brewers at Legend.. been working there 14 odd years now.. I've had a rather rough afternoon since the last time I posted in this thread...

I shiat you not... my hands are tore up because I got into a physical altercation with two daschunds..

As crazy as this shiat may sound. . I came home.. went to go pet my little dog, who hasn't been feeling well, he was sitting next to my mother...

just then, one dacshund leaps over and starts fighting with my dog, the other doxie leaps into the fray.because the first one attacked. I am now trying to pull my dog out of this fray while those two assholes are LATCHED ON TO THE EARS  of my dog! I am litteraly holding onto my dog and these two farkers are holding on for dear life fighting and frothing while my dog is screaming.

I just had to PUNCH two dacshunds in the face and kick them away from my dog. whom they were trying to kill because I dared pet him too close to my mother.

I now have three stitches in the tip of my left middle finger because of all this...


and... well.. I know you didn't mean anything by it..., and there is no way you could've known.. but, when I saw that you had put up a picture of a label of one of our "competitors" beers in response to Richmond's greatest cultural exports..

well.. it made the hurt, hurt a little more.

robertus:

Just to let you know again, and that I wasn't taking anything personal and that my story is true, I just needed to vent for a moment, please enjoy a month on TF on me.
It really has been a rather tumultuous evening for me, even if the story sounds like it came from a GWAR comic..

Sorry

I haven't had Legend or, to be completely honest, the Hardywood. I have a couple of raging alcoholic beer enthusiast friends down in Richmond, and they rave about Gingerbread Stout. Every time we see one another, there's an "oh shiat, I left your bottle at home" moment. I fear I am beginning to doubt them.

I shall point them forthwith to your establishment. They're always looking for good beers.

/Thanks for the TF

Still remember the first time I heard of GWAR - watching Bevis and Butthead on MTV with some friends and a GWAR video came on.  B&B just went into a foaming at the mouth, epileptic, orgasmic frenzy, which felt very true to their characters.

As a GWAR fan, but not a person that plays an instrument, you have a great point and I never thought of it that way.  I just always enjoyed their older stuff.  Scumdogs, IMO was their best album to date.

Because it wasn't that great a Who song before being translated into possibly the worst musical genre in existence next to polka?

In case nobody's mentioned it, GWAR's latest album, Battle Maximus dropped a couple weeks ago. Stop farking around on FARK and go pick it up!

GWAR is one of those rare acts where whatever opinion you have of them is likely to be correct. They're awful, fantastic, disgusting, hilarious, boring, energetic, trite, freaky, and almost much any other adjective you can come up with.

But seriously Fark... Hipster? Really?
 
2013-10-02 06:36:43 AM  
The only GWAR song I know is Sick of You, which I love. The ex saw them a year or so ago, said it was an awesome show. Gonna check this out when i get back onto the computer later and off of my phone.

Car_Ramrod: I saw GWAR at Riot Fest last month. Idunno, it was kinda fun for about 2 songs, just to laugh at the absurdity, but it got old fast. I'll admit I'm not their target audience (I don't care for heavy metal in the slightest), but it just seemed an entire show of what teenagers think will "offend the masses".


GWAR is really just a bunch of (former) art students' side project that took on a life all its own. The real guys are eclectic for their original surroundings (Virginia), but they were always intended to be outlandish more than offensive.

"Saddam A Go-Go," for me. I liked the idea of heavy metal combined with a brass section. It was like ska almost, except actually good.

You know, I'm getting pretty sick of this misuse of "raging alcoholic" Its bullshiat in a fark thread.

Alcoholics drink beer. Raging alcoholics drink distilled beverages. Vodak usually. Link takes you to the best in the farking world.

Jesus Christ, THIS. I played a halloween gig not too long ago where the costume I wore called for me to wear a leather trail duster I owned. It looked awesome, but by the end of our (25 minute!!) set I honestly thought I was going to farking die.

let them know they need to grab some Legend Harvest ale. it's fantastic and super rare. sold out before it was even finished. I'm looking at a row of 22ounce bottles in the display cooler behind the bar right now. and thats the only place I know for certain it can be found
the gingerbread stout from hardywood is a very good beer, dont get me wrong, but I still think they have issues with consistancy.. Ive had bottles that have tasted great, others that have tasted like coppertone sun tan lotion...

I had a sad last night, and I just need a little bit of a reach out, then there was just an.. awww MAN! thing. no hard feelings because I know none were intended and the TF gift was to reinforce that I had no hard feelings. as for the beer thing, The brewery I work for has been doing its thing for 20 years now. a lot of the beer geeks are running around for new hotness. and thats fine.. we make the standard go to craft beer, the daily drinker you take for granted, the other folks make the boutique and desert beer.

Back to the GWAR stuff! its hard to not be involved in the Richmond music and art scene and not have a few run ins with GWAR.

I am in the video for meat sandwich... if but so breifly... if y'all go to the youtubes and look at that video, wait for when the "ragnarockers" are marching to the grills, right at the end of the line, just as the scene changes BAM big teased red haired guy in a biker jacket.... that's me!

favorite recent GWAR album has been From Hell the GWAR official rock opera
