Style Weekly dug deeply into GWAR this week and for good reason: the band have had a year like few others. Certainly, the sad news of Dave Brockie’s passing will be the lasting memory for many, but after their downs, GWAR also had their ups. They’ve released a mountain of atypical merch and marketing ideas — some good, some not so much. They’re going back out on the road with Decapitated, Corrosion of Conformity, and American Sharks. When they’ve played Oderus-less, they’ve looked in good form. And now there’s going to be a GWAR documentary.

The nine minute trailer for Let There Be GWAR details the band’s beginnings, showing how frustrated art school castaways built a band to fit their fantasies. It’s actually a rather inspiring story and a clever piece of cinema, utilizing a picture-in-picture talking head technique to great effect. Of course, GWAR aren’t just any band, but their origins are similar to other lifers that keep on doing it out of love. If you’ve winced at their recent capitalistic streak, it’s a nice palette cleanser. A date and other release information for the Don Drakulich-directed documentary hasn’t made the rounds yet, but you can watch the full nine minute trailer below.

Speaking of GWAR-related documentaries, you can catch them in Riot on the Dance Floor, the new film about Trenton, NJ rock club City Gardens, which makes its BV-presented NYC premiere TONIGHT (8/28).
