I stumbled upon this article that may have some info as to what happened to Joey Slutman, and what he's up to.  A new band (Man Is Doomed), and a Hurricane Benenfit  1st Article/ 2nd Article

Quote
"Pay attention to Doomed Man/benefit organizer Joe Annaruma, back in Philly by way of the Katrina evacuation. He honed his showmanship chops fronting Gwar as Joey Slutman"

Quote
I have traveled many miles and I have wiped away many smiles/ I have come from my icy pit, just to rub your face in shit." That was the chorus to "Slutman City," which Annaruma wrote for Gwar back in 1985 when he fronted the horror-metal legends under the alias "Joey Slutman."

Quote
"When Joe Annaruma left Philadelphia and his band Throttle and moved to New Orleans in 1995, he didn't think he'd come back. And he surely never dreamed he'd return to play only charity gigs. But that's exactly where he and his current band, Man Is Doomed, are at today."


Quote
"That's what drives Annaruma. "During Katrina I got to see people bust their ass to get a sandwich or a bottle of water to someone who had none," says Annaruma. "After being a self-absorbed prick all these years, I want to do something meaningful.

Here's Man Is Doomed, Slutman's new band's, myspace. This stuff isn't too bad. I'm usually not a fan of instrumentals, but this stuff is good, heavy, and simple.

Am I the only one who thinks this is really cool and that that's a great way to go? Way to go Joey!

thanks for the Kudos Karma and I am right under your nose Gor Gor. I've been invited into your sanctum to answer any questions you may have about the dim times. This seems like an appropriate thread to do so, so leave questions here and I will check every so often and answer to the best of my abilities. Thanks-Joey

My first few questions for you.
1. In Blood, Bath, & Beyond, there's some footage of you guys (and I'm certain you were in it) running around the  snowy streets of Richmond. Attacking parked cars, fighting Cardinal Syn, scaring Richmonders, and being too awesome. Do you know what the storyline was to that, and what movie it was for?
2. How many shows did you play with GWAR?
3. Do you still have any GWAR Demos or live recordings laying around, or were they all destroyed in Katrina?

#1- In BBB, the only footage of me is on stage fighting the giant ant during the 2nd Gwar show. I had moved to Philly before the Street footage in Richmond,so I dont know what it was shot for, but it was before Phallus, I know that. We used to walk around Richmond in costume, but we never filmed it, people in Richmond  were pretty backwards back then, it was like the land that time forgot.
#2- I only played 2 shows in costume and a house party in a campus dorm of VCU in street clothes-actually the first Rawg show before they called it Rawg. Most of my first year in Gwar was spent making the first props and costumes, writing the songs and scripting storylines.And we also recorded the the first demo. You have heard some of the songs from that on Let there be Gwar, but there are songs you will never hear because the original lyrics to Time for Death and Slutman city were my lyrics.what you heard were the versions where Brockie added his lyrics with mine. to recap...I played my first show at casablanca's (Rockits), and my second at the VCU dorm party and my last at Floodzone, after that I realized that there were way too many ego's in the band and that it would be best if I left, plus I met a girl with really big tits and a nice car who wanted to move to Philly, as I hated Richmond, being a big city boy from NYC, I opted to move back to civilization. I still believe that I would not have lasted all these years with Gwar if i stayed, so everything happened the way it should have.
#3- pretty much everything was lost in Katrina, but it wasn't much anyway, I have never been able to get copies of anything from brockie or Hunter, no matter how many times they said they would get stuff to me. I have one original flyer from the Floodzone show and an original Gwar comic with the origin story, also from that show. i do have an old practice tape with the original songs including the ones I wrote plus Save the seals and Pure as the arctic snow, its really rough and it is in Virginia, I need to go down there and get it from a friend, I may have to murder him to get it.Hope that answers some of your questions.

I dont even remember the guys name who originally played our manager. he was a friend of Hunters, I didnt like him much, he was a short,fat pig-nosed geek. But we needed someone to play our manager. After i left, sleazy took over, i guess they didnt like the kid or he couldnt do it anymore, not sure. But the whole big brother story line was a way to add continuity, and Sleazy killed him. There is a lot of fratricide going on in the early days to answer for all the early members leaving.LOL Johhny killed Joey and Sleazy killed sluggo. Sluggo was just an early form of sleazy. Sluggo was only around for one show, the floodzone show, along with Gwar cereal.LOL

Were you involved with or know about the Slave Pit before you sang for GWAR? If so, did Russ Bahorsky ever play a show for GWAR? Was he a guitarist as Mr. Magico, or just a side-character?

I LIVED IN THE SLAVE PIT. me, Brockie, Jim thompson and collette Miller (gwar girl) all lived at the dairy building, which is where slave pit originally was.we each had living space there and we had a practice spot as well as a huge area where we made the first costumes and props. bahorsky did not play guitar when i was in. I will give you all the line ups that we had while i was in:
First incarnation with slutman:vocals: Joey Slutman Annaruma (me), Guitar #1 : Steve Douglass, #2: Brockie, Bass: chris Bopst(loved that fucking guy) and drums: Sean Sumpter

second incarnation: Steve Douglass was canned and this guy John Cobbitt took over, but we didnt like him so we brought in Greg ottinger from the alternatives, so cobbitt never played a show, he did write the music for time for death which was actually a rip off of metallica, I wrote the original words to time for death. Sean Sumter left to play with this band called  jungle something , I forget, so Mosby came in, but he left too, thats when Jim Thompson came in, we also had Tim Curry come in as a drummer, for the floodzone show, we had two drummers. so the line-up was:
Vocals: joey Slutman, guitar 1: greg Ottinger, Guitar 2: brockie, bass: Bopst, drums: Jim Thompson and Tim Curry (i think that was his name, i know Curry was his last name.

The richmond dairy was a crazy place, there were artists who lived there, neon artists, tee-shirt printers, painters, sculpters etc. All the early songs, concepts and props/costumes were made there. I think that alot of Phallus was shot there too. It is a condominium now.
