As the opening liner notes proclaim, Weeville is; "the first straightforward LP by Tall Dwarfs - uh...in terms of having the same number of tracks on each side -- both of which play at the same speed and which ain't a compilation."

Nonetheless, their 1990 release is filled with the Tall Dwarfs eclectic mix of homespun psychedelia, densely textured pop songs and a wallop of hard nosed punk. Now, re-issued again on LP and CD, Weeville is wired with hypnotic tunes, weird and wonderful instruments and brilliant songwriting. Whether that be the raw spookiness and two guitar harmony of Breath and Crawl or the oddly compelling Skin Of My Teeth and Bodies all brushed with a scent of the macabre. Along with a 20 page booklet featuring the duos individual art and design, Weeville is a fantasy land built on tape loops, feedback and distortion. Its pop music just how they like it.
