Killer Dwarfs Unreleased Album?

Recommended Posts

A while back (a nice way of saying, "Christ knows when") I downloaded an album from someone, who claimed it was an unreleased Killer Dwarfs album, and I'm just getting around to listening to it now. It SOUNDS like the Killer Dwarfs; in fact I'm 99.9% certain it IS them, BUT I can't find any mention of this supposed album anywhere. No one seems to know fuck all about it, and if they do, they're not saying anything at all. It's strange - you play a track you KNOW is from a Killer Dwarfs CD, and then immediately follow it up with one of the mystery tracks, and it sounds exactly like Russ Dwarf, or at least a very impressive imitator. Anyone else ever have this dilemma where they receive something they can't verify as being the real McCoy, but the content makes it impossible to believe otherwise? The first 3 tracks are Just Another Day, Psycho Circus Clown, and Keep My Life. Anyone else familiar with this?

Would you be up for sharing this mystery album? I for one would be very interested to hear it. :tumbsup:

I just found it listed in someone's collection online as Just Another Day from 2006, but the official site doesn't have even a passing mention of it. And as for sharing it, why isn't that il-le-gal? :angel:

Wowser. Is it still the Killer Dwarfs we knew and loved, or is it a more grungy disc?

Is it Penny Black?.....Russel's band after the Dwarf's?? I don't have mine in front of me to look at the track listing.....

 

If that is an unreleased...or tracks from the Dwarfs that I've never heard, I would LOVE it...as they are one of my favorite bands!

Okay, you twisted my arm. Anyone wanting a reasonable facsimile (notice I didn't say "copy") of the 10 tracks, drop me a PM with an e-mail addy. Those of you with first born children, I'm sure a trade wouldn't be out of the question. If you're particularly good at shameless bum-smooching, or just plain old flattery, I'm even open to passing them along with no strings attached. :christmas:

What album does it sound like Jarred? And when was it recorded, after Method?

It's really hard to tell. Could have been right after...doesn't sound really old or dated. One things for sure...the tracks all sound from the same time period so I don't believe they are odds n ends. I can send it out if you guys would like. I have a lot of people's email addys from before but send me a PM reminder of which one is yours. I'll send out the files tonight after I get everyone's PM.

After listening to it closer it could have very easily been recorded in 1993 or 1994. I believe they disbanded the first time in 1993 so it's not likely to be after that. I wonder if it's Jason Hook playing on the album? I don't remember it being this good but it is. Unfortuantely I couldnt find a damn thing about the album when I Googled it :(

What's the production/sound quality? Is it finished or just rough demos?

 

I wouldn't mind hearing this...

The quality is actually very good...I still think that it might be Hook playing guitar. Doesn't sound like the other guys at all. Shoot me your e-mail Dan and I'll get it to you with everyone else tonight.

I'm spinning it now and it's solid so far but they do sound like Demos to me.

Is anyone brave enough to email the band and ask them about the tracks?

 

I bet your brave enough Rick. :tumbsup:

Evil Rick might be, but not me.

    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me. 
    • not worked up. I couldn't give a stuff about VH the band or EVH. Was never really a fan tbh outside of a handful of songs. But MM is a twat. Period.
