Dwarves – Born Again – Review

June 1, 2011

18 new songs to fingerfuck your eardrums, from harmonized rampage to doo-wop teenage thrills. Only Blag is getting a handjob under the counter at the malt shop.

April 20, 2007

Young girls, little people, blood, sex ‘n’ violence have been explicitly expressed via song and performance as the Dwarves spill seed into their third decade.

The L.A. Shakedown! – Review

July 23, 2003

January 3, 2003

Punk-O-Rama – 5 – Review

September 1, 2000

A lotta punk inspires me to smash jewel cases, not the state, so when I wanna relisten to/go-get-the-latest by some of these bands, that says a lot.

Punk-O-Rama – 3 – Review

April 1, 1999

While there’re songs I like better then those chosen to represent the bands, that might just clue ya into the fact I own a fuckload of Epitaph’s records.
