***BACK IN STOCK!!! The DWARVES are Rock Legends. Birthed in the garage rock revival of the 1980s over 30 years ago, they continue to confound and confront audiences all over the world with searing live shows and masterful new records. Coming to prominence as one of Sub/Pop’s first signings the Dwarves reputation for live madness earned the fear and loathing of grunge-era crowds and the shock and awe of their peers. Between 1988-92 they performed live with many of the most popular bands of the era including Nirvana, Green Day and the Offspring to name just a few. 1990s Blood Guts & Pussy LP with its no nonsense punk rock and disturbing cover art helped to awaken a nation anaesthetized by hair metal and cry baby flannel. The LP’s Thank Heaven For Little Girls and Sugarfix came next . Following the death of guitarist HeWhoCanNotBeNamed the Dwarves signed to Epitaph and proceeded to do for pop punk what they had done for grunge, making The Dwarves Are Young & Good Looking and Come Clean the definitive LPs of the skateboard punk era. By the turn of the century the Dwarves had toured Europe and the US extensively, as well as Japan and Australia. Appearances on television and radio and dozens of song placements in film and TV solidified their legendary status. In 2005 The Dwarves Must Die (Sympathy) was hailed as their most eclectic album yet with producer Eric Valentine and a cast of underground notables featured in cameos that had the dying recording industry buzzing until they remembered who the Dwarves actually were. 2011 saw the release of The Dwarves Are Born Again returning to the punk ferocity of yesteryear, but continuing the genre defying experiments their fans now demanded. With 2014 upon us, over 1200 shows under their belt and three decades of sickness to draw from, the Dwarves continue their assault on good taste with The Dwarves Invented Rock & Roll (Recess/Greedy). The relentless middle finger drive, catchy songwriting and deft production that set the Dwarves apart have never sounded better. And let’s face it, there’s only one punk band left that matters, so catch them soon at a theater, nightclub or crackhouse near you! Pressed on colored vinyl.
