Australian Tour February 2005
The Dwarves are returning to Australia after three years in the bush to reclaim the title of best live band on seven continents. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to see rock being invented before your undeserving eyes!
The histories of some musical groups are so shrouded in legend that separating fact from fiction is nearly impossible. The Dwarves rise from Illinois paisley garage band to San Francisco punk icons to international symbols of decadence has been so fraught with misinformation that less is known about them now than when they first made the scene almost two decades ago.
Their new album, The Dwarves Must Die, adds another layer of mystery and intrigue to this sordid tale of rock ‘n’ roll excess and the only label that matters, Sympathy for the Record Industry, is the perfect place for this warped masterpiece. Careening wildly from garage to hardcore, from hip hop to art rock, from pop punk to sheer noise, the album takes a journey through the dark heart of American music to the dirty soul that lies beneath.
Known for their ferocious live performances, as those who caught the 2001 Australian shows can attest to, The Dwarves will hit us in February as part of their world tour in support The Dwarves Must Die. In this age of pre-packaged punk and ready-made rebellion, The Dwarves remain fiercely independent and unrepentant to the end.
