Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that midweek time of the human week; which was created rather than really existing of course; so it’s about time for the first episode of a comedy satire story we created from a time-travel land beyond Earthly weeks with their Sun days… or even Moonly months.
Yes, the Werewolf of Ozzers continue their journey through the magical rock world of Kerang-Kerrang in the latest thrilling instalment of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. In this episode the Ozzers travel through a late-1980s British heavy rock and metal metaphor, which is looking a little run down after its 1970s and early-1980s heyday, before reaching the Doors of Perception:
Chapter 85. British Heavy Metal and Rock Around the Block
We emerged into the neon streets of night-time LA. As we reached a roundabout, a Ratt jumped Out of the Cellar of a nearby building. It ran past us before going Round and Round in circles. We continued running, with the Grunginator hot on our heels.
British Rock in the Late 1980s
We entered the British quarter at the end of the 1980s. It had become a little run down by then, with hardly any new construction to add to the building blocks that had emerged in the early eighties classic period.
There was a small pocket of rising activity involving The Cult of Little Angels that had Wildhearts of Thunder worshipping Dogs D’Amour; but I heard gunfire after we passed through, so I feared the Grunginator might have destroyed the Temple of the Dog.
