PODCAST: Episode 41: Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) Tribute Episode

This weekend (August 30th) GWAR will unveil a public memorial monument to the late Dave Brockie, a.k.a. Oderus Urungus, in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, on what have been his 56th birthday. Hollywood Cemetery (412 S Cherry St, Richmond, VA). All are invited to the unveiling, and to a free party the next day, August 31st, at the GWARbar (217 W Clay St, Richmond, VA). As a tribute to Dave, we are running our never before released full audio interview between Dave and Ghost Cult’s Omar Cordy. An excerpt of this long chat ran in issue #15 of Ghost Cult Magazine in 2014, when he passed away. As one of the last interviews he ever did, Dave conducted the interview as Dave (not Oderous, which is rare) and talked about his entire career, coming up in the old-school DC Punk scene, the music industry, valuing art over business, the late Cory Smoot, and his prophetic plans for GWAR to continue on without him in the event of his death. Rest in Power Dave! Hail Oderous! Continue reading
