Dwarves have always been known as this in-your-face California hardcore band, but what most may not know is that they actually started out as a Chicago garage/psych band. They were initially called Suburban Nightmare before changing their name to Dwarves. While I enjoy most of the Dwarves hardcore output, I would have loved to have seen where they could have taken this sound. Oh well, most good rock n roll bands don’t even release this many songs so might as well enjoy it.
I’ll be in Memphis from Sept 29 to Oct 2 for Gonerfest. It’s a yearly festival put on by the record label/store Goner. They were cofounded by Eric Friedl of the Oblivians and have featured so many great artists on their label at their festival. I cannot do the history of this fantastic festival justice but this is a link that can take care of it:
I Hope everyone has a fun and great weekend.
