Killer Dwarfs  

Known as much for their memorable name as their music (the band was christened by their management in the early days of the group, noting that the guys simply weren't very tall), Killer Dwarfs were one of Canada's better known hard rock bands in the eighties. Along with the band name, they all adopted Dwarf as their last name on stage (a la the Ramones), and after two smaller-label albums in 1983 and 1986 (the latter, Stand Tall, might be their best album), they signed to Epic Records for a trio of albums between 1988 and 1992. The band enjoyed considerable success in their homeland and modest success elsewhere during their major-label run, but the changing hard rock climate led to their being dropped by Epic, and the band broke up soon afterward. They reunited in 2001 for a show in their home town of Toronto, which was released as the Reunion Of Scribes album. Nothing fancy here, the band played typical rock anthems that embodied 80's mainstream hard rock.
