Gwar trail history movie

Gwar have released a nine-minute trailer for the movie that will tell the story of the band’s career.

Let There Be Gwar documents the outfit from their earliest days until the death of mainman Dave Brockie, alias Oderus Urungus, in March.

No release date has been set – but the band have discussed how they intend to continue, with former bassist Michael Bishop taking the role of new frontman character Blothar for their upcoming shows.

Plans to stop touring next year have been shelved as a result of the change in circumstances. Backing vocalist Bob ‘Bone Snapper’ Gorman tells Style Weekly: “We just have to keep putting out quality stuff. If it started to suck we’d lose our credibility.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
