Legendary Dwarves frontman Blag Dahlia has digitally released his new LP, Introducing Ralph Champagne, with a physical release to follow on Greedy Media via MVD Entertainment on October 21.
Whereas the Dwarves have long been revered for in-your-face, defiantly non-PC punk rock and garage thrash, Ralph Champagne introduces an infectious brand of Retro-Americana and Outlaw Country style that you and your most embarrassing friends can celebrate even with everybody watching. Ralph Champagne embodies the lovably shady crooner, serving up catchy melodies and off color lyrics with a rakish smile and ad libs worthy of the late late show. Arguably, the best looking man in show business, he might also be physically attractive and wealthy beyond his wildest dreams.
The first video and single “Lolita Goodbye” is premiering on Spin.com:
On October 11 Blag will release his new novel Highland Falls via Rare Bird Lit. The book tells the further adventures of Nina West, small-town trickster and teenage object of desire. Featuring sex, drugs, violence, more sex, ice cream, Denny’s, a funeral home, still more sex, and the only music awards show that won’t put you to sleep!

During the plague year of 2020, songwriter Dahlia and vocalist Champagne joined forces with pop producer Andy Carpenter and a cast of good-looking session players to create the Introducing Ralph Champagne LP. Running the gamut of styles from outlaw country and trucker ballads to sugary euro-pop duets, rockabilly, novelty songs, and Country Trap Remixes, the record stays fresh with repeated listening.
While the DWARVES uncompromising vision of gut level rock & roll, dazzling production, and filthy lyrics have created a unique legacy spanning over four decades, RALPH CHAMPAGNE is the new libertine on the block, trading in Dahlia’s trademark punk growl for the sultry stylings of a soul-stained lounge lizard.

“A guy who knows how to rub some people the wrong way, some the right. A guy who doesn’t believe in musical comfort zones. A guy who is completely capable of stirring things up as well as silence an entire room. Someone who doesn’t run at the first sign of trouble. If there isn’t any trouble, the guy knows when and how to create it. Kids in punk bands, you could definitely learn a thing or two from Blag Dahlia.” – Vice
“Short of G.G. Allin, it would be hard to name a punk rock band that went further to establish a bad reputation than the Dwarves.” – All Music
