By now the two young heavyweights from the LA Skate / Art / Punk underworld, No Age are a well known and established part of the indie pantheon. But back in 2007 Dean Spunt and Randy Randall were building quite a bit of noise in the wake of the demise of their previous band Wives.
After working out their sound in the LA scene revolving around the now fabled venue The Smell (picutred on the cover of Weirdo Rippers) they decided to release five ltd. vinyl only releases on a variety of DIY indie labels across the globe on the same day (namely UTR, Deleted Art, Teardrops, Youth Attack, and Dean’s own PPM label). Designed by Brian Roettinger, Randall and Spunt, the back of each record's sleeve was a different color, and had one of the letters that, when you collected all of them, would join to spell "No Age." Their debut LP release for FatCat, ‘Weirdo Rippers’, was a collection of recorded highlights taken from the aforementioned releases.
