Cory Smoot’s Last Gwar Recording Released on iTunes
Gwar’s cover of Dayglo Abortions’ 1993 anti-censorship anthem “Isn’t This Disgusting,” which was the last Gwar recording to feature late-guitarist Cory Smoot—better known as Flattus Maximus—has been released on iTunes. All proceeds from the track will got to the Smoot Family Fund. The single will be included on the Dayglo Abortions tribute album, which will be released next year.
Gwar frontman Oderus Urungus had the following to say about the track:
“The Dayglos have always been one of my favorite bands ever since we played a show with them 25 years ago,” he said. “So when we heard about this project we were completely stoked, not just with the idea, but the song selected for us. It pretty much sums up my whole attitude. But I had no idea it would the last time I worked with Cory Smoot in the studio. This track has Cory’s last studio leads, and as usual, they fucking rip. Cory may have left us but his music will live forever. CRANK IT!”
