The former frontman for the famous psycho-surf-rockabilly-garage-punk combo Flat Duo Jets, he released his first of nine albums in 1990 to rave reviews worldwide. He starred alongside R.E.M. and The B-52s in the 1987 cult classic film, "Athens, GA Inside Out."
His first national tour in 1990 was as opening act for The Cramps. He was showcased on MTV's "The Cutting Edge" and "120 Minutes," starred in the Flat Duo Jets videos "Wild Wild Lover" and "Radioactive Man," made a memorable performance on "Late Night with David Letterman," and has shared the stage with dozens of other rock icons including Iggy Pop and the White Stripes.
The Dex Romweber Duo also features Dex's celebrated sibling Sara Romweber (Mitch Easter, Lets Active, Snatches of Pink) on drums. The band recently signed a multi-album deal with Bloodshot Records and the first album will feature duets between Dex and Cat Power, Neko Case and Exene Cervenka and will be released in 2009.
