Band History

Band-square3.JPG
Formed in 1995 in Kings Nose, NJ, world-famous heavy metal band The No Talent Ass Clowns are known for their signature tune, Blow Chunks Ballet (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8pPtYepzTE). Front man Lars Gunblade (upper left in photo) has caused controversy by tasing concertgoers from the stage (which has caused a number of alleged fatalities), getting hundreds of groupies pregnant carefully charted in a blog entry and talking about their infamous video interviews on YouTube.

Band members are rumored to dislike each other intensely but are keeping the band together because of the money and the seemingly endless procession of groupies with low self-esteem. They also are open about their hatred for their fans as well.

The No Talent Ass Clowns were banned from the annual Historic Dildo Days Festival in Dildo, Newfoundland in 2010 after wrecking a bed and breakfast and, as rumor has it, getting Mayor Mickey Stubbs' daughter pregnant. Strangely, they returned in 2011 and singer Lars Gunblade wound up fatally tasing six concertgoers during the concert. He laughed off the incident and was never charged.

The band launched a touring blimp in 2010 in an attempt to outdo Led Zeppelin's touring airplane of the 1970s. Equipped with hot tubs and private bedrooms, the blimp made headlines when the band tried to race a naval blimp during the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In 2011, the blimp exploded over Greenland and the band was thought to have been eaten by polar bears. Later, the band announced it was a stunt and that they had paid Greenland locals to be mauled by the polar bears. Another blimp was launched shortly afterwards and remains in use today. The band is rumored to be building a sub-orbital spacecraft for touring.

In 2011, the band was kicked out of a sex addiction clinic in California for staging orgies. At least one fundamentalist Christian church in North Carolina worships the band and their CDs in spite of abundant ass-related lyrics in every song.

Singer Lars Gunblade maintains a long-standing feud with Foo Fighters front man, Dave Grohl after the two had a falling out in the 1990s. Grohl now refuses to even acknowledge that he knows Gunblade.

The No Talent Ass Clowns insist on releasing every album on Edison Cylinders, even though the format has been dead since 1915. Each album also appears on 8-Track tape. To date, no cylinders have been purchased and 8-Track tapes account for 0.0001% of sales. According to guitarist Vas Defrens, "We will never give up on these formats."

The [blog][1] on their web site chronicles their various sordid exploits and strange touring venues, including Consumption Auditorium (which still hasn't been condemned).

Record Label

Since 1995, the band has been with No, Not There! Records. The label is owned by infamous Jerry Gold, who is also the Ass Clowns manager. Gold is often called upon to spring band members from jail. Remarkably, Lars Gunblade served no jail time after killing six concertgoers with a taser in 2011. Gold is rumored to have paid off more than two dozen police departments to keep the band out of jail and on tour.

Controversies

  • The band is associated with the practice of "ass clowning," which is where drunk concertgoers break into cars in the parking lot and crap on the driver's seat. The ritual happens exclusively at No Talent Ass Clowns shows.
  • The band demands that all female concertgoers attend topless. Violators are ejected from the venue, unless they are ugly. According to Lars Gunblade, the band is trying to arrange for all women to attend their concerts completely naked but they are having trouble with local law enforcement officials on that one.
  • In 2010, ex-Ass Clowns drummer, Vulgar Smith, was killed shortly after writing a negative blog about singer Lars Gunblade. Gunblade was suspected but never charged.
  • The release of their 2012 CD Ass On Demand sparked a wave of protests across the country from conservatives who objected to the cover art as well as the over-the-top ass-related content.
  • Recent rumors suggest that guitarist Vas Defrens' famous New York City restaurant The Ass House has been killing unhappy customers and putting them in the house stew. To date, no official investigation has taken place.
  • In 2011, front man Lars Gunblade demanded that all other bands retire within 30 days due to the fact that The No Talent Ass Clowns said everything about rock music that needed to be said. His demand was ignored.
  • in 2011, Lars Gunblade became the fifth person to accuse presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment, stating that Cain wanted to "put extra cheese on me and have a giant slice." The mainstream media completely ignored this story.
  • When their blimp passed over Australia, the band dumped the contents of the toilets on a kangaroo preserve. Days later mutated kangaroos began killing picnickers. The band was never charged.
  • Wikileaks revealed in 2011 that Gitmo interrogators used the band's "Blow Chunks Ballet" to torture prisoners.
  • In 2010, drummer Joey Van Dundro was not arrested when he performed a non-sexual act on stage. Consequently, he did not have to be sprung from jail and fans were not disappointed in his behavior.
  • In 2012, Lars Gunblade released a shocking tell-all book entitled The Beatles: Conspiracy Against Pete Best. The book contained perhaps the first theory linking the sacking of Beatles drummer Pete Best with the Paul is Dead rumors. Due to legal reasons, the book is no longer available.
  • In 2014, the entire band was kidnapped by a deranged fan named Buford Picklefeather of Perth Amboy, NJ. Lars, Vas, Carnage and Joey were eventually discovered in an underground chamber built by Picklefeather in his backyard. Picklefeather was later found dead in a prison cell under mysterious circumstances.
