Werewolf of Oz Time-Travel Tale Whams Whiskey-a-Go-Go

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. You might have thought the thrilling time-travel tale in Kerang-Kerrang was all over after the Alician ending told in yesterday’s blog, but like in many a good tale told in books and movies, it’s not quite the end of the tale.

Nope, before the Werewolf of Ozzers can continue eating up the miles on their epic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps journey there’s the not so small matter of getting Angry to the Whiskey-a-Go-Go in time to save trash metal; set up in Chapter 84. Meanwhile, Angry finds a puppy that becomes relevant in a later Perishers-themed chapter; that storyline was inspired by the photo that is used again below.

Wham, bam, werewolf comedy slam, here we go to the Oz 1960s-1990s time travel town:

Chapter 91.  No Rest for the Licked: it’s All Go, to Whiskey A GO-GO

We turned the corner of the Temple of the Dog, just as the spirit of Andrew Wood Thru Fade Away with a Gentle Groove. We could see no sign of the Grunginator, just a Man In The Box.

Remembering Angry’s Appearance at the Whiskey a Go-Go

I was feeling drained, plum knackered in fact, so I lay down on the temple steps. I was about to drop off, when I heard Dizzy exclaim:

‘I’m waking you up
before to sleep you go-go,
there’s no time to rest
so Wham is a necessary pest,
Angry was supposed to be on floor
of the Whiskey a Go-Go
over an hour ago.’

It had completely slipped my mind, and seemed Rock of Ages since I’d seen the Whiskey a Go-Go poster advertising Angry’s appearance.

Rushing Angry to the Whiskey a Go-Go 

We rushed back to the 1980s, and arrived at the Whiskey a Go-Go in next to no-no time, pronto.

The crowd roared raucously as Angry took to the stage. The show went brilliantly, and Angry surprised us all at the end when he magicked a puppy out of his boot, telling the crowd it was a gift from the Temple of the Dog. I didn’t see Angry receive it; maybe I did drop off before Dizzy’s wake-up call.

Angry left the stage to resounding cheers, surely having fulfilled his destiny to inspire the LA metallers.

It had been hard work, and downright dangerous at times, but it was rewarding to think we’d played a small part in saving trash metal.
