I remember that there was a Werewolf hard rock or metal band in some sourcebook, but I am having trouble finding it again.

I know these pieces of the puzzle:

  • There was certainly at least one Garou as part of the group.
  • They were 'renowned' for their afterparties, which seemed to border on veil breaking.
  • It might have been one of the city tribes (Glasswalkers or Bone Gnawers), though I am not really sure about that.

What was the band’s name and where was it mentioned?!

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you remember the edition? It might be useful if you do, as there have been a lot of Werewolf books published. \$\endgroup\$ – Baskakov_Dmitriy Jun 9 '18 at 0:05

  • \$\begingroup\$ Could it have been a graphic novel instead of a sourcebook? E.G Werewolf the Apocalypse: Fianna \$\endgroup\$ – Zhacrie White Jun 14 '18 at 20:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ZhacrieWhite That is one were band, not entirely sure if it is the right one... \$\endgroup\$ – Trish Sep 30 '18 at 15:01

As I dug through the pile of "old stuff" in a comic shop, I encountered a battered up copy of "Moonstone Comics - Werewolf the Apocalypse: Fianna". Cover and what I noticed on a skim did match at least in big part what I remembered:

A rock band of werewolfs, calling themselves "Wolfshead", playing in the "Luna Loungue". Fianna. Just the part about the after party doesn't come up... so... close but not quite what I think it was.

This was most likely what Zhacrie White meant when he commented

Could it have been a graphic novel instead of a sourcebook? E.G Werewolf the Apocalypse: Fianna


From W20 Kinfolk: A Breed Apart, pg 30, under Widdershins Society:

Twenty years ago, Fianna Kinfolk Padraig and Aidan Conneely formed Widdershins, a Celtic folk band made up of their musically talented friends, all from Fianna stock. [...] Other Celtic folk groups have since joined the Widdershins Society: Wolves of the Highlands, specializing in Scottish folk songs and featuring bagpipes and Scottish pipe and drums, makes their way up and down the Appalachian region; Gaelsong, an acapella group of Kinfolk, regularly tour the arts and crafts fairs and anywhere else that invites them; Taliesin’s Songbird, a Welsh folk band with connections on both sides of the Atlantic; and there are others. [...] While the Widdershins Society remains a Fianna society, other tribes have followed suit, and some have formed their own Kinfolk musical societies. Pan and the Muse, a duo made up of a pair of Black Fury fraternal twins, Andromache and Andros Peloppaneus, bring ancient Greek songs into the modern age and anchor a group of Black Fury male and female Kinfolk; Gertie’s Jug Band centers around a large network of Bone Gnawer Kin, providing Cajun and Zydeco music as well as soup kitchens to feed and entertain homeless populations; Potlatch Songs consists of young Wendigo Kinfolk musicians eager to bring a strong environmental and natural living message to the world, believing that this can help strengthen Gaia for the coming battle. Each tribe has at least one musical Kinfolk group providing musical and social connections.

That's all I got about Garou/Kinfolk bands. Does this help?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I hope it does! A Celtic folk band—much less an acapella or Zydeco band—is rarely also a "hard rock or metal band" as the question requests, but if it is, such a band is likely at least worth a (fictional) listen! \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Aug 15 '18 at 16:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ It's a good find, yet it does not match but two things that I am sure of: Pre W20 and reputated for having parties bordering a veil breech. \$\endgroup\$ – Trish Aug 15 '18 at 19:23

The Widdershins are a Fianna Celtic folk band, is that what you’re thinking of?

    \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to the site! Please take the tour when you get the chance. This answer looks like it has some potential, but it would be better if you included a reference to the source book (ideally with page numbers) that mentions the Widdershins.
