No Age is a two-person American indie rock group consisting of guitarist Randy Randall and drummer/vocalist Dean Allen Spunt.

No Age is a two-person American indie rock group consisting of guitarist Randy Randall and drummer/vocalist Dean Allen Spunt. The band is based in Los Angeles and is currently signed to Sub Pop records. The duo initially played together in 2005 with drummer Jeremy Villalobos in Wives, and takes their name from the title of a 1987 SST Records instrumental compilation, which Spunt discovered while working at Aron's, a record store in Los Angeles.

Along with the bands Health, Mika Miko, Silver Daggers, Abe Vigoda, BARR, and David Scott Stone, No Age has been listed as a mainstay of the Downtown Los Angeles venue The Smell. The band has strong ties with the Los Angeles underground community centered around The Smell. No Age is a strong advocate of the All-ages Movement Project, an organization that connects youth to each other and to the arts through independent music.

The band recorded five limited edition vinyl singles and EPs, and released them on five different labels on the same day, March 26, 2007. 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.” These five EPs and singles were collected and released in album form under the title “Weirdo Rippers,” in June 2007 through Fat Cat Records.

Buoyed by positive reviews in the music press, No Age signed to the prominent Seattle-based independent label Sub Pop. In May 2008, No Age released their debut record for Sub Pop, “Nouns.” The CD version featured a 68-page full-color booklet with art, photos, lyrics and information about the release. The album was nominated for a Grammy in the category Best Recording Package and reached #27 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.

Their second Sub Pop album, “Everything In Between,” was issued in September 2010. The first single was “Glitter” and the artwork was designed by Brian Roettinger, who also designed the artwork for “Nouns.”

I don't know what kind of band people think we are, says No Age's Dean Spunt. The singer-drummer-bassist is genuinely curious, as people sometimes see.
