    The year 1997 was a big one for me both personally and socially. I was deeply involved in music, writing, and the arts, and my personal life was winding up in a crescendo of self-discovery and debauchery. That was twenty years ago and I am writing a little bit about each album on their release dates.

Today, we look at a mid-period release by GWAR, Carnival of Chaos

    The year 1997 was a big one for me both personally and socially. My band Morpheus was wrought from nightmares, a number of very influential albums were released, and my personal life was winding up in a crescendo of self-discovery and debauchery. That was twenty years ago, now. The scale of this chunk of time which has passed in relation to my own life is something significant to me, so I would like to write a little bit about each album on their release dates.

Our first highlight is the late and revered David Bowie’s Earthling

I was there with one fist in the air and a camera in my other.
