Dexter Romweber is nothing less than an icon of the American music underground. Pioneering the template for the stripped to-the-essentials guitar/drums duo format in the (should be) world famous psycho-surf-rockabilly-garage-
The Dex Romweber Duo also features Dex’s celebrated sibling SaraRomweber (Mitch Easter, Lets Active, Snatches of Pink) on drums. Don’t be fooled by her slight frame or affable demeanor, she smacks the shit out her kit. How someone with wrists so tiny can make the snare CRACK like that is beyond us.
The DEX ROMWEBER DUO is a potent combo that’ll get your leg twitching with the beat and your heart racing -and sometimes breaking- with the feral excitement of music. If it don’t, you might want to consider turning in your “I Heart Rock n Roll” badge.
Guitar fans take note. Dex ain’t one of those guys who needs series of effects pedals the size of a table top to destroy a room; all that noise, that beautiful beautiful noise he makes just comes his guitar, his fingers and his brain. If only 10% of guitarists played with HALF his conviction, the world would be a much better, and wilder, place.
