Episode #90 "Blothar" (GWAR)
Welcome to this weeks episode of Heavy Metal History. My guest for this weeks episode is “Blothar” aka Mike Bishop Bass Player/Scumdog of the band GWAR! Mike came on to talk about the 25 year anniversary of GWARS 1994 album “This Toilet Earth” Mike gives so many details and insights to how the record was recorded including a harrowing story of how guitarist Pete Lee was tragically shot (and lived) during the recording sessions for the record. Mike and I also discuss the bands legacy and moving forward after the loss of Dave Brockie as well as Cory Smoot. The band has somehow managed to keep forging ahead despite all the diversity and tragedy in their 30+ year long sonic invasion of our smelly and putrid planet called Earth.
