    Read SPIN's 1990 Profile of GWAR, 'Guerilla GWARfare'

    This article originally appeared in the June 1990 issue of SPIN. In light of the tragic death of GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus, a.k.a. Dave Brockie, we've pulled this piece from the SPIN archives.Before Oderus Urungus, leader of GWAR, answers any questions, he reminds me that I, a mere human, am "an insignificant speck of diarrheic phlegm." When I reveal for whom I am writing this article, he replies, "SPIN… Ah yes, I think I wiped my buttocks with it once." Such is the wisdom of the gods.Well, not exactly gods. GWAR is actually a posse of Antartic warrior demigods. GWAR is also the sickest heavy metal parody band in the galaxy. But it would be best to let Oderus tell the story: "GWAR was created by the master of creation, an ambiguous being named Larry, as the ultimate doomsday device. GWAR was at one time in the legion of Scumdogs of the Universe, but they were banished to the earth.
