The Dwarves: The Dwarves Invented Rock N’ Roll
We used to have heroes. Remember? Like Evel Knievel. He would strap on an American flag cape and jump over buses on his motorcycle. Half the time he wouldn’t make it and he’d break 27 bones. He’d be out of the hospital for a day and a half before he was back on the bike, jumping over shit and accidentally setting himself on fire. When he wasn’t doing that, he was guzzling booze like a champ. You could trust a guy like that.
The Dwarves are essentially the Evel Knievels of rock’n’roll. They know they’re gonna die of rotten livers or syphilis, but they gotta keep playing punk rock and beating up the idiots in the front row, no matter what.
This record, like all of their records, is basically just the delivery system for their next sex-and violence-fuelled road campaign. And it will definitely not let you down. (8/10)
