Reminds me of Frank Zappa and Mr. Bungle, but also of Green Jelly and eatmewhileimhot!, The Global Warming Extravaganza comes between parody and insanity, chaos and music, and as always, it’s quite impossible to draw the line between genius and madness. Mark A. Shredmurder and Christopher T. (“The T is for Teriffic”) Bottomsworth supposed to form a band back in 2007, but the other guys didn’t showed up, so… they had to struggle through all the Budweiser and Jack Daniels bought for the party and the result is this monster-brain-child abbreviated GWEX.
And as any good thing in life, “Debaucherous Adventure” can be downloaded for free (“name your price” = donate much as you want/can) from their Bandcamp page.
Be prepared for anything – good and bad – you can think on/of because there will be more. Welcome to the “mEatrix”. This is fuckin’ unbelievable. But brilliant. 😀
Mark Hawkins – vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, drum programming, satan, Matt Henderson – vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, satan, Christopher T. Bottomsworth – vocals, bass and Jake Hohenzollern – keyboards, vocals delivered a hell of a (musical) trip and eight killer tracks. In the first few minutes (out of almost nineteen :D) of the opening “Evolution” I wasn’t sure if this is a joke or something actually fuckin’ great, but things only getting better minute after minute, theme after theme and these guys rocks you off. They make parodies, plays death metal and shift right after into disco just to go down to something totally different almost instantly. Twisted? Yes. Sick? Who’s to determine exactly what’s healthy and what’s sick or… deviant?
GWEX is just great. Very alive.
Last time in 1991 the album “Mr. Bungle” was that awesome.
Thank you guys, it’s just incredible!
