2000 - Dwarves Come Clean

January, 2000

Ready to warp the minds of a new generation, dope producers Dahlia and Valentine team up to create an ambitious follow up to "Young & Good Looking". Fresh from helming Top Ten hits for SMASHMOUTH and THIRD EYE BLIND, Valentine experiments with a more brutal form of pop-music and in the process drags Punk-Rock kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.  "The Dwarves Come Clean" is a schizophrenic effort that jumps frenetically from hook-laden power-pop to skin-crawling hardcore, from dirty novelty songs to disturbing new-metal production pieces, in the process mutating the whole spectrum of modern and retro rock styles.  Blag the Ripper enlists the help of songwriters NICK OLIVERI, REX EVERYTHING and HEWHOCANNOTBENAMED who join a host of guest artists (Swingin' Utters, Toys That Kill) to further fracture the heads of record buyers desperate for something new.  Recalling the classic "Blood, Guts & Pussy" album, photographer Lavine captures the return of dwarf icon Bobby Faust as he cavorts with two luscious nymphettes and a bubble machine for the album's cover. So much for sales at Wal-Mart.  Once again, the British press salivates for the new Dwarves record, but this time even America is starting to catch on to the San Francisco Rock Legends. Adding bassist CHIP FRACTURE (Jon Cougar Concentration Camp, Machine Gun) and drummer GREGORY PECKER (Excel, My Head) the Dwarves take their ever expanding line-up to the stage.  Once again the nation and the world prepare to hide their daughters.
