Dwarves Standing Tall

When punk legends the Dwarves announced an Australian in tour June, they only announced a wee three dates. Then something happened. Something that can probably be explained with a little research. But I don’t go in for that sort of thing. Anyway, they’re minor details in some big, happy news: the band now has a date in Geelong. That’s right, brothers and sisters, it’s on like Donkey Kong in heat. Their story begins in 1983 when an early incarnation of the band, then called Sexually Deprived Youth, performed at a high school pep rally. It was a performance which led to their expulsion. They then changed their name to Suburban Nightmare and released the EP Hard Day’s Nightmare. It was also around this time that their ‘Skull and Boners’ logo was designed. From there, well, it’s probably best to head across to their official page for their history. It’s an interesting read. As for the latest news in the band’s camp, their new album The Dwarves Invented Rock & Roll will hopefully be on the shelves by the time they reach our shores. However, ‘Trailer Trash’ is available for your listening pleasure right now. This show really should come with a warning, but it wouldn’t help. The Barwon Club, Geelong – October 16.
