GWAR Covers THE PET SHOP BOYSTuesday, 28th October 2014
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 below. 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.”
