Tesco Vee’s been involved in the punk rock scene pretty much since it began. Starting pioneering punk rock zine Touch And Go in Michigan in 1979, he formed The Meatmen in 1981. This seminal hardcore punk band made it their business to trample taboos, ignore PC conventions, and piss off as many people as they could. It only makes sense that a band with this mission–which is reflected in Meatmen song titles like “Crippled Children Suck,” “French People Suck,” “We’re The Meatmen And You Suck,” and many more–would perform at the 2014 GWAR-B-Q, taking place on Saturday, August 16.
So first we heard that the 2014 GWAR-B-Q would continue on as scheduled despite the untimely passing of Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus. Then we learned that the event’s headliner would be none other than Body Count, the thrash metal project fronted by legendary rapper Ice-T. Now comes the strangest and most exciting news of all: in spite of Oderus having passed from this mortal coil, the mighty alien overlords of GWAR will take the stage again at the Fifth Annual GWAR-B-Q on August 16, 2014.
As we all know, the show must go on, and plans for the 2014 GWAR-B-Q continue full speed ahead, with the official TV commercial and the first bands confirmed for the event being released today.
