Hometown: Chicago, IL (USA)

About:

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‚?Ě 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‚?Ě and ‚??The Dwarves Come Clean‚?Ě 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!
