Midget Madness singer/bassist Chris Angelo says, "We can fit on any stage, no matter what size it is.... All of us are five foot five or less."

"We've all been buddies since [Hilltop] high school," says Angelo, 22. "We all wrestled.... I got a full [scholarship] to Iowa State. But it ended because of financial cutbacks. They only offered me a 30 percent scholarship [for his sophomore year]."

So, Angelo returned to San Diego to concentrate on Midget Madness with his brother Jon, 24 (guitar), and Neto Garcia, 24 (drums).

"Our name was taken from a series of midget porno videos," says Angelo. "I don't think we own the name, to tell you the truth. If they wanted to come after us [for use of the name], they wouldn't get anything because we don't make anything.... The name breaks the tension. Tall girls really don't go for short guys."
