Black Bananas, Magik Markers, Dwarr 

When: Wed., May 16, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

The Drag City reissues of Dwarr's first two albums—1984's Starting Over and 1986's Animals—offer deserved exposure to the ultra-rare, collector-bait LPs that South Carolinian Duane Warr originally recorded to a Tascam 8-track and self-released on a private press. The low-budget slabs of proto-metal and Sabbath-psych have the outsider charm and skewed sensibility that draw collectors of strange sounds, but the burly riffs and cautionary horror tales of songs like "Screams of Terror" or "Evil Lures" offer immediate riff-metal satisfaction. They take on a haunting prescience, too, given Warr's later conversion to Christianity and (temporary) disavowal of his hard-rocking past. With Drag City labelmates Black Bananas and Magik Markers. —Bryan C. Reed
