GWAR and Cruzar Media and seminal alien space-rockers GWAR have teamed up to release a tribute to the DayGlo Abortion’s 1993 anti-censorship anthem “Isn’t This Disgusting?” via iTunes this past Wednesday, according to Blabbermouth. The single was recorded by late GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot, aka Flattus Maximus at his Karma Productions studio in Virgina shortly before his tragic passing in early November.
“Isn’t This Disgusting” was mixed by Rob Shallcross, known for his work with Strapping Young Lad and Zimmer’s Hole. The track is being released in memory of Smoot, and all proceeds go towards the Smoot Family Fund.
DayGlo guitarist/vocalist The Cretin commented:
“This makes me feel like I have accomplished something with my life. It is a bigger compliment than any industry award or anything else I can think of. Bigger than recognition from peers. A pat on the back from the big boys. I believe proceeds from this go to Cory Smoot’s family fund. So shell out the buck 99, then e-mail me a copy, ‘cuz I can’t afford it. Cheers to GWAR.”
GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus added:
“The DayGlos have always been one of my favorite bands ever since we played a show with them 25 years ago. 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!”
