REVIEW: Dwarves’ “The Dwarves Invented Rock & Roll”

 photo Dwarves_cover_zps48149986.jpg The Dwarves Invented Rock & Roll (Recess/Greedy) may not be completely honest in the grand scheme of things but considering who is the competition in the mainstream these days, who do you think is going to defend the crown? In truth, while the Dwarves may not have invented it, they definitely keep the spirit alive and do so on a very wicked album full of punk rock spirit.

15 songs make up The Dwarves Invented Rock & Roll, most averaging 90 seconds in length with the longest song running close to three minutes. It has been years since they released Blood, Guts & Pussy and Toolin’ For A Warm Teabag, but vocalist Blag Dahlia has managed to fine tune his singing slightly, although when he is sable to belt and puke it out, he can do it in an instant. The songs on the album alternate between rock’n’roll freedom and pure punk rock mayhem, singing about being the faithful sons of Lord Satana. The guys in the band are older and mature, perhaps a little bit wiser, which is why they sound like a group who deserves the longevity and status, but they are still doing it for the sake of pissing people off, especially with titles like “Armagaddon Party” and “Sluts Of The USA”. Sluts, drugs, and rock’n’roll, you can’t get any better than that.
