GWAR has to be the hardest band I’ve ever shot.
Litres and litres of blood, pus and guts being shot into the crowd wasn’t easy to escape! The decapitated guy during the first song literally pointed his cut open head at bouncers, photogs and anyone in range, shooting his blood into the front row! Hahaha!! Check the pics!!
I noted early that security were all wearing raincoates and was also told by the stage manager “you WILL get covered in goo“, so I was determined not too and hid under the lip of the stage only jumping out when I could physically see that decapitated dude was not pointing his um head in my direction.
Aesthetically GWAR were incredible, musically, they were shithouse.
