He Who Cannot Be Named has been playing punk rock for almost 30 years, most of that time with the legendary “Dwarves”. An original member of this San Francisco based combo, he wrote or co wrote many of your favorite tunes from the early Sub Pop albums “Blood Guts and Pussy”, and “Thank Heaven For Little Girls”. He was voted guitarist of the year by “Flipside Magazine” in 1991, but is mostly known for his unusual stage wear, or lack thereof. His trademark look can best be described as “naked and wearing a mask”. According to James Orme from Slug Magazine, He Who... is “maybe the most mysterious character in all of rock n’ roll.”   

 

Hewho’s fourth album, “The Good, The Bad, and The Brutal” is available online now on all major digital outlets (iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp etc).  It will be available on extremely limited purple vinyl in the US (100 copies total).  As well as a limited edition color for Europe and Canada.  Keith Mueller again appears on lead guitar with the addition of drummer Eric Borst and bassist Bobby Ramone. This album is a collection of songs, half with the word “Good” in the title and half with the word “Bad”. It also features guest vocal appearances by Spike Slawson (Me First and the Gimme Gimmes), Chris Barrows (Pink Lincolns) Sean Wheeler (Throw Rag) and Nick Oliveri (Dwarves, Mondo Generator, Queens of the Stone Age). This album will come out on Spaghetty Town Records (USA) , God’s Candy Records (Canada) and Beluga Records (Europe).
