According to Gwar mythos, Jizmak Da Gusha was a beast of tremendous power, native to a planet known as "The Wide Wide World of Sports" which, according to Balsac the Jaws of Death, has "lots of frisbees", and he was frozen in a block of ice, presumably near the Gwar headquarters in Antarctica, for a millennium When Gwar's former drummer Nippleus Erectus died after bathing in copious amounts of hydrochloric acid in the hope that it would work like LSD, and cause hallucinogenic effects, Gwar decided to thaw Jizmak to replace Nippleus actually, to replace Nippleus' replacement, Lee Beato, who was only present for a very short time; his end came with his total conversion to a wisp With Slave Pit Inc focusing less time on the Gwar mythos which was effectively concluded with the defeat of the Master in 2000, it is unlikely that more of his origin story will be revealed
When Gwar was first formed, their drummer was a character named Hans Orifice Hans was originally played by Sean Sumner but was replaced after a few shows by Jim Thompson By the time Gwar's first album Hell-O was released, the character of Hans Orifice had been replaced by Nippleus Erectus, played by Rob Mosby However, following the album's release, Mosby left the band and Pete Luchter served as Gwar's drummer under the alias Lee Beato Luchter had to leave the band after only a few gigs due to a nervous breakdown Shortly afterwards, Brad Roberts joined the band as drummer and created the character Jizmak Da Gusha Roberts played drums on Scumdogs of the Universe even though a misprint in the pressing accredited Mosby Roberts also played drums for Gwar spinoff bands RAWG, X-Cops and The Dave Brockie Experience Roberts played drums for two X-Cops songs, "Beat You Down" and "Junkie," replacing Mike Dunn He is also featured as a vocalist on the song "Barbells" on the album "You Have The Right To Remain Silent", though he is not the album's drummer
Jizmak Da Gusha is the only central Gwar character who has been played by only one person Brad Roberts Roberts first started playing with Gwar in 1989, after the year's North American tour
Jizmak is the only character who does not wear his armor during concerts so as not to interfere with his mobility as a drummer, with the exception of two-bladed arm coverings resembling dragon mouths, a "gut-plate", and a loin cloth These costume pieces have undergone minor changes, getting more detailed as time progressed His headpiece mostly had subtle changes until 2004 In "Scumdogs of the Universe" and "America Must Be Destroyed" Jizmak had two big ears and a very large red jaw, but the top half of his head was Roberts in makeup Starting in "This Toilet Earth" and lasting until "Violence has Arrived" Jizmak had a similar red headpiece, except the ears were slightly shrunk, and a top half of the head was added This had a doglike nose, beady black eyes, and a top jaw The hair was removed from the costume it being Roberts' real hair, and he wore it short for a time For the most part, the lower jaw stayed the same This was the longest lasting Jizmak head For the 2004 album "War Party" and 2005's "Live in Mt Fuji" the headpiece was changed to closely resemble a wolf, with grey fur and distorted features His hair was again long like it is in real life For the summer tour, as well as the new album, his costume as with the entire band has undergone changes The mask still retains lupine characteristics the wolf's mouth is wider and the fur is brown, and the armor is composed of exposed muscle mass as opposed to the Roman segmental armor he wore since "Violence has Arrived" In behind-the-scenes footage, the armor doesn't hinder his flexibility he is able to reach all of his cymbals without trouble, and he is seen wearing it in the "School's Out" video and the GWAR cartoon

Sometimes Jizmak's drums have been painted to resemble distorted eyes or skulls, adding to Gwar's distinct visual appearance At one point his drums are unpainted except for the words, "FUCK", "OFF", "YOU", "CUNT", "COCK" and "BLOW" scribbled on some of the drums This might be a reference/tribute to Stewart Copeland, the drummer for the new wave band The Police, who had the phrase "Fuck off you cunt" written on his drum heads circa 1982 during tour The entire drum kit is underneath a large arch-like structure The first incarnation was seen in the "Live From Antarctica" video, though the current arch looks nothing like it There are also lights mounted to it Currently his drums are white with blood splatter design
