Sonic Youth + The Ramones = No Age? Apparently so. L.A. lo-fi noise/punk duo, No Age, composed of Randy Randall and Dean Spunt have been releasing great 12″‘s for a while now, but it wasn’t until June 11 (in Europe, at least) that they released their debut LP, Weirdo Rippers. Most of the tunes on Rippers are culled from previous releases, but you’d never guess by the flow of the album. It doesn’t sound nearly as copy-pasted as you might think, instead sounding like a great collection of songs. The continuity is a little off, sure, but it’s hard to complain with tracks as great as these are.
