I am going to be balls-to-the wall honest. I was not expecting a lot when I clicked on Cassie’s link on Facebook to listen to this song. I honestly thought it was going to just be a cover of some random old song that would have no effect on me what-so-ever. Well, I was really, really wrong. The audio isn’t 100% awesome, but you can hear it enough to know what is happening. This reminded me of his style during the Three Cheers era. Apparently, this is Way’s contribution to Kevin Smith’s new horror flick coming out soon. Without further adieu, here is “O Waly Waly” by Gerard Way.
The craziness that is the videos and storyline surrounding the imminent release of Hesitant Alien continues. Today, posted to Gerard’s YouTube channel, is an “interview” from the same “episode” of Pink Station Zero that he performed “No Shows” on. Purposefully awkward, the host grills Gerard about what kind of human he is, what galaxy he prefers to tour in, and forces him to recite lyrics from “No Shows.”
Brett’s note: Pink Station Zero is very similar to the short-lived early 80’s variety show, Pink Lady and Jeff. It lasted only a handful of episodes, but is actually available on DVD from Rhino Records. Check it out and you’ll see what I’m talking about!

Want to see how the video of “No Shows” was made? Check out the short clip above and all is revealed!
The always-intrepid Frank Iero released a music video for the second single from The Cellebration’s debut album, Stomachaches. “Joyriding” follows in the bloody footsteps of Frank’s other work that has come before this (see: LeATHERMOUTH, 2009).
In the newest issue of Rock Sound Magazine, due in stores on September 10, Gerard is featured on the cover. The article covers what has come before and what is to come. What is nice about this particular publication is that they also catch up with the rest of the band and what they’re currently up to.
Rock Sound also published a short interview they posted on YouTube:
You can purchase issue 192 of Rock Sound Magazine here.
Nada Records posted this on YouTube of the guys recording the Bullets album. Pretty cool! Take a look!
