Russ Dwarf (of the Killer Dwarfs) appears on the current episode of the Decibel Geek Podcast. Topics of discussion for this audio interview include the recollection of Killer Dwarfs sharing a studio with KISS, touring with (and pranking) Iron Maiden in England, and the show from Hell in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Russ also shares his thoughts on today’s musical climate, the demystification of rock stars due to the youtube boom, and the major impact that Alice Cooper had on his performance and sense of humor. Decibel Geek Podcast host Chris Czynszak stated, “Russ was a true pleasure to talk to. Co-host Aaron Camaro and I were immediately disarmed by his down-to-earth nature and willingness to bring his true feelings forth. His honesty combined with a well of experiences made for a very entertaining and thought-provoking conversation. We look forward to having him on the show again in the future.”
Russ Dwarf is currently touring acoustically throughout Canada and will finish the year in his current job as singer for Canadian legends, MOXY in London-Ontario at Downtown Kathy Brown’s on December, 16th.

About Russ Dwarf:
As co-founder of Killer Dwarfs in 1981, Russ Graham quickly gained international success, first in Canada with the Killer Dwarfs’ self-titled debut album in 1983. The break-through 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.
A worldwide recording contract with Epic Records eventually landed them an opening spot for Iron Maiden’s sold out tour of Great Britain and sharing stages with such acts as Dio and Michael Schenker across North America. The band soon received a nomination for Canada’s prestigious Juno Award as “Heavy Metal Album of The Year”.
Killer Dwarfs came to an end in 1995 save for a reunion tour in 2001. Putting a period on the world of the Killer Dwarfs, they decided to pursue their own independent efforts.
