Punk rock legends the Dwarves remain one of the most bizarre and misunderstood bands of all time. Their latest cd “The Dwarves Must Die” (GREEDY/Sympathy) redefines the limits of the rock album, touching every genre and style from hardcore and pop punk to garage and surf, hip/hop, death metal, noise and beyond. Their new dvd “FEFU” (GREEDY/MVD) features the Suicide Girls and traces the Dwarves long and twisted ride through the dark world of underground music.
Born in Illinois in the mid 80’s as a paisley garage band, by 1989 they had morphed into fire breathing California grunge icons, putting Sub/Pop on the map with their seminal “Blood, Guts and Pussy” album. Performing with many top acts and spanning the globe the Dwarves gained a reputation for live madness and mayhem that follows them to this day. “The Dwarves are Young and Good Looking” and “The Dwarves Come Clean” released by Epitaph during the 1990s cemented the Dwarves reputation as hardcore heroes while introducing a pop sensibility that both titillated and confounded their fans. Appearances on television and radio, soundtracks for films and dvds and tours throughout Europe, Japan and the world have warped a whole new generation of Dwarves fans, proving once again that the scum also rises!
