Synopsis:
Meet William and his band 'The Alaska factory' who have pinned their hopes of success on London, the city of dreams. But William's dreams soon turn sour. His band seem intent upon turning his songs into commercial pop and the object of his affection, Madeline, remains out of reach. And just to top it all he witnesses the bizarre murder of Paisley, the lead singer of The Unfortunates, by a pair of dwarves. There is one bright spot on the horizon for William - Karla - the vivacious but mysterious new pub barmaid. After the murder, William starts to learn more about Karla.
Once a punk rocker in Glasgow in the late 70s, the only record produced by her obscure band, The Dwarves of Death, appears to be important in unravelling the connection between Karla, the frightening Vincent (who runs the only recording studio in town who will have The Alaska Factory), and Paisley's death.
