Killer Feature on Dex Romweber in the Oxford American


June 15th, 2012 by Rami

One of our all time favorite publications is the Oxford American: The Southern Magazine of Good Writing. They consistantly hip us to the lost treasures of American music.

This month's issue gives full on treatment to DEX ROMWEBER.

All The Requisite Billies: The Untold Legend of Dex Romweber traces the rises and falls of one of our favorite musicians of ALL TIME. Embedded are videos featuring interviews with Jack White, Neko Case, Cat Power, Exene Cervenka, a performance in the early '90's on David Letterman, a clip from an MTV documentary (and holy shit! the live footage of the Flat Duo Jets doing "Crazy Hazy Kisses" is epic! Keep in mind, that's just TWO people whipping up that glorious racket!), and then there's a link to the song the Duo cut with Jack White in 2011. Finally, there's an embedded link to the heralded documentary on Dex "Two Headed Cow."

Check it out. If you are Dex fan, you'll love it. If you are NOT a Dex fan, it'll force the question: "What's wrong with you?"
