DWARVES, THE: Gentleman Blag: 7” EP

The Dwarves have supplied me with centuries of glee; their best seven-inchers, however, tend to be ASide showcases for Blag’s deceptively excellent pop chops—Anybody Out There and Everybodies Girl (sic) coming immediately to mind. This four-song EP ((two unreleased, two from The Dwarves Invented Rock & Roll)) lacks that sort of “hit single” mentality, and is just basically four ragers—all decent, nothing exceptional—and therefore tastes like a vaguely unsatisfying random slice of a Dwarves album. Aw, what the hell, we all know the “best seven-incher” is the thing between Blag’s legs on the back cover! BEST SONG: “Kings of the World” BEST SONG TITLE: “Gentleman Blag” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: No matter how you slice it, it comes up penis.
