Dwarves – The Dwarves Are Born Again (2011)

Dwarves were pretty famous for their simple, loud, yet nuanced punk repertoire, and controversial lyrics and also became notorious for self-mutilation, on-stage sex, and taking hard drugs, and their live shows would often only last around fifteen minutes, occasionally cut short due to injury caused by spectators. So, Bobby Faust – the midget – and some naked chicks are back again. 😀 Singer Blag Dahlia (aka Julius Seizure, born Paul Cafaro), and guitarist HeWhoCannotBeNamed (aka Pete Vietnamcheque) – the only two core members of the group – are backuped by “Fresh Prince of Darkness” on guitar and returning drummer Gregory Pecker (aka Gnarlie Watts) and this is another noisy, trashy, scandalous punk rock album, dirty and absolutely lovely. For those who somehow never stumbled into the Dwarves before, it sounds mainly like a sex-maniac Iggy Pop in the most incisive The Stooges era met The Ramones. So, we’re doomed. 😀

“To save the ozone and the earth, and all the creatures stand and surf, this world is full of things to do, and Dwarves are always come back too! So let’s get high and fuck some sluts….” 😆 That’s how it starts and things just get… “worst”. Well, probably this is not “politically cool”, Dwarves will not become the favorites of the housewives, but I think it’s fuckin’ funny. And more important, Dwarves managed to write 18 perfect punk rock/hardcore songs and this is an awesome album. “I Masturbate Me”, “You’ll Never Take Us Alive”, “Happy Birthday Suicide”, “Working Class Hole”, “Candy Now”, “You’re Girl’s Mom” – or you just can name it, are all instant classics. Absolutely scandalous – I love it!
