Dwarves - That's Rock 'N' Roll 7" - 1990

The whole Dwarves experience is summed up in this quote from Blag Dahlia (lead singer). This is from an interview for Skratch magazine back when they released "The Dwarves Must Die"

SKRATCH: Anything to add?
BLAG: What can I say, except: buy the record, see the band, chew the bubblegum, sleep with the singer?it's the only way to go. The Dwarves rule. We shall return. We've done it again. Hide your daughters.

I love that quote. These guys are everything that is rock and roll. That may mean for good or for bad depending on your perspective.

Or here's another closing to another interview. Again it crystallizes the band. Again Blag speaking.

Is there anything else you'd like to plug or talk about in this?
Yeah, I just want to reiterate what the Dwarves are. We've fucked more groupies than the whole pansy ass Warped Tour put together. New bands don't know how to party, just whine to their managers about the deli tray and act like they care about the kids. We sodomize teenagers and dose them with Rohypnol, we beat other bands senseless and steal their gear, we terrorize promoters and rip off the box office. We kick the shit out of label owners and rape booking agents. We are rock 'n' roll, everything else is just a a pale, tired imitation. How’s that?

This 7" was recorded back in 1990. That's Rock 'N' Roll was originally recorded by Eric Carmen and "I'm A Man" was recorded by Bo Diddley. I've included a little flier I picked up at a show last year. I think I've already written about that night of nakedness. You can read about that here.

Anyways, the songs are great. The record is fun. Check it out if you're into punk rock.
