Something you should know about North Carolina…The Dex Romwebber Duo!!! Recently supported on tour by The Detroit Cobras; this duo is definitely something to see… or rather to hear.  My first impression: homemade haircuts, a duct-taped guitar a prehistoric amplifier,  and an overall un-manicured stage presence. However, once the show started, this odd couple taught me a valuable lesson, not to judge a band by its “album cover.” Music is about listening and it was video that killed the radio star.

Their sound is a mix between the salty surf rock rifts of Dick Dale, paired with the southern comfort of old Johnny Cash country blues, and the moody ambiance of Tom Waits. Their album, Ruins of Berlin, is the perfect soundtrack for a Sunday afternoon Bourbon tasting, or a long country drive in a 66’ black Cadillac! No confirmed tour dates for the future NYC, but give them a listen on line! If you’re still into buying albums, this is a good one, because it’s listenable from beginning to end and features tracks with Neko Case and Cat Power!
