GWAR's Oderus Urungus Calls President Obama "a Murderous, Bloodsucking Vampire"

Whether he's embodying the presence of artist and musician Dave Brockie or that of Oderus Urungus -- the foul-mouthed curmudgeon alien scumdog that fronts the universe's baddest band of profane rockers, GWAR -- this man can talk just about anyone under the table.

When we interviewed Brockie last year, he had his crosshairs set on the costumed rockers who have emerged in the wake of his ultraviolent, superkitschy legacy. He had especially nasty things to say about Rob Zombie.

We again had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Urungus, and our conversation has further developed our understanding of the complexities intrinsic to embodying the role of GWAR's lead marauder, while maintaining a frontman and bandleader's clarity and sense of purpose.
