This is not even something I can remember live because I’m just too young. But I know that in any record store you go, there’s always a hidden Dwarves record. Originally from Chicago, mid-80′s hardcore/garage band had relocated in San Francisco. But anyway, the true reason why the band was known for was the guy, He Who Cannot Be Named, a naked masked-guitar player.
Here is what I found today:
He wrote an album coming out this June, the 8th. He enlisted the help of former-Dwarves dudes including like Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of The Stone Age & The Dwarves), Blag Dahlia (The Dwarves, Candy Now), Andy Selway (KMFDM & The Spittin’ Cobras, The Dwarves).
Now, aou thte title and the lyrics, Sunday School Massacre, were inspired by HeWhoCanNotBeNamed’s experiences as a counselor/teacher with teenagers suffering from mental illness or abuse. Many of the songs were actually written while he was on duty at a residential treatment facility. Some of them were used to teach students in a “school of rock” type music program that he created and directed.
