No Age is a noise rock band from Los Angeles, California which formed in December, 2005. The band consists of Randy Randall (guitar) and Dean Spunt (vocals, drums). The band has so far released two albums, 2007 'Weirdo Rippers' (a compilation of early material) and 2008 'Nouns.' In mid-2008, the band released the single 'Eraser' which has since become the band's best known song.
Dean Spunt and Randy Randall, two perfectly nice fellows from the LA skate/art/punk underworld, comprise No Age, a destructive duo who decided to release five limited vinyl-only releases on a variety of DIY indie labels across the globe on the same day. Weirdo Rippers is a collection of highlights for these releases. Despite its multiple sources, the tracklisting for Weirdo Rippers follows a narrative of its own, cohering effectively as an album.
The duo put out their second release in 2008 titled Nouns, on Sub Pop. The album was rated 9.2 (out of 10) by Pitchfork Media, making it the website's highest-reviewed original release of the year to this point.
Formed from the ashes of Wives, No Age purvey a stripped essential take on pop delivered via a clearly defined punk-rock aesthetic, taking noise, energy and melody in equal measure. Reminiscent at various junctures of the likes of early Black Dice, The Ramones, and My Bloody Valentine, Weirdo Rippers documents a fast developing band hitting their stride.
