Fingerprints Music

He Who Cannot Be Named has been playing Punk Rock for over 25 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." Perhaps his infamous "death hoax" has something to do with this air of mystery. In 1993 the band (DWARVES) issued a press release stating their guitarist, He Who Cannot Be Named, had been stabbed to death in Philadelphia. Though this later turned out to be a hoax, the band even went as far as to attach a tribute to the "late" guitarist on their 1993 Sub Pop-released album Sugarfix. Sub Pop did not respond well to the hoax and summarily dropped the band from it's label.
