AllMusic Review by

Released right before the infamous Blood, Guts and Pussy LP, the Dwarves were just starting to blossom out of their psychedelic garage era and dive head first into the un-PC, feminist-hating, GG Allin-inspired mayhem for which they would become famous. Even if there are hints of '60s blues laced here and there on Lucifer's Crank, the bluntly titled "Free Cocaine," "Dead Brides" and "She's Dead" reinforce their stupid punk rock antics. With this mentality, the Dwarves are one of the few musical equivalents of an action movie: brainless and bone-headed, but you can't help finding guilty pleasure in it.
