I originally wrote this interview for Canada’s EXCLAIM! in June, 1996 but they no longer archive back that far on their website, so I thought I’d make it available here again.

One band that I have covered for Exclaim! on a number of occasions that will appeal to some metal fans despite their non-metalness is the US based heavy blues rock quartet Gov’t Mule. The last time I wrote about them was about seven years ago, but when I got a last minute offer to cover their recent Toronto performance last week for Exclaim!, I rang up Albert Mansour to see if he was interested in checking it out.

When it was announced that GWAR would be doing an in-store at London ON’s ZEUS CD Plus record store I asked my son Kieran if he’d like to go and get his photo taken with the band. I thought it would make for a neat little feature here on Hellbound.ca. Some photos of the event can be seen within.
