This picture of Killer Dwarfs was taken sometime between 2000 and 2003.
Band members at the time included:
Formed in late 1981 by Russ and Darrell Dwarf, the Killer Dwarfs released their self-titled debut album in 1983. The award-winning band established a solid following in Canada, while achieving modest worldwide sales.
The breakthrough in the United States came when San Antonio based radio personality Joe Anthony started spinning their album on a regular basis, much to the delight of hard rocking Texans. This planted the seeds for what would result in Killer Dwarfs receiving a lot of attention south of Canada's border.
Released in 1986, the band's second album, Stand Tall, was embraced by American rock radio. The first single, "Keep the Spirit Alive," was an anthem of the times. The accompanying video was added to regular rotation on MTV and the newly born Muchmusic. By spring of 1987, the video became the most requested video on MTV, setting a record that would take years to overcome. A second video for the title track was greeted with nearly equal accolades. This wide exposure allowed significant touring opportunities to come along. Killer Dwarfs had arrived.
Mike Dwarf joined the band in 1984, followed by Bad Ronbo Dwarf less than a year later. With the classic Dwarf lineup now in place, the boys kept touring and writing and eventually released Stand Tall and three more albums: Big Deal, Dirty Weapons, and Method To The Madness.
The band took a hiatus when grunge music came into vogue but are back and are rocking out in clubs like The Zoo again.
