“30 years ago? Nah mate, that album was only released a few years ago”. The sentence uttered before the inevitable cry of “fuck! It’s been THAT long?!” That’s how long it has been since Gwar released ‘Scumdogs of the Universe’ (actually, because of Covid-19, it’s 31 years…bloody pedants) and in celebration of this magnificent record, Gwar played a special livestream show last year to really give this release the decadence it deserves. Now, all of us who weren’t at that show can get our grubby little paws on ‘Scumdogs XXX Live’, the recordings from that very show.

                For Gwar fans, this live show is everything that they could ever want. It is not only ‘Scumdogs…’ played in its entirety, but it is fully complete with amusing on-stage banter where the rotating line-up is addressed, snippets of people calling in and a wonderful mini tribute to Oderus Urungus who is sadly no longer with us. The bells and whistles are pulled out here, being a livestream show, the band have been able to pull strings that may not usually have been able to be attained with ‘Scumdogs…’ seeing guest appearances from none other than the original Sexecutioner for his namesake song, the return of Techno Destructo and Slymenstra Hyman as well as Sleazy P. Martini making his appearance for the ‘Slaughterama’ game show.

                If you are not a fan of Gwar, then ‘Scumdogs…’ will probably mean nothing to you. But for those fans of the Virginian Slave Pit Inc. then this live celebration is an excellent prospect.

For Gwar fans, this is the ultimate celebration of 'Scumdogs of the Universe'
