Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Killer Dwarfs had the makings of a big-time arena rock band, but headlining arenas was something the slick outfit never had the chance to do. A big commercial breakthrough eluded the Killer Dwarfs, whose pop-metal style was sort of M”tley Cr쳌e meets Ratt meets Poison. Typical of the band's Epic output, Dirty Weapons isn't the most original album in the world and is far from earth-shattering, though it does contain some fairly catchy material -- most notably "Last Laugh," "All That We Dream," and "Not Foolin'." Why one of these songs didn't make the Killer Dwarfs successful is anyone's guess -- the album sounds like it was tailor-made for MTV and album-oriented rock radio of the early '90s. Perhaps it fell between the corporate cracks. Whatever went wrong, Killer Dwarfs barely made a dent commercially. ~ Alex Henderson
