dUNETX is the lone rock band in Houston,Tx to consistently keep playing live and releasing new music since the mid 90’s. Three albums and a few ep’s later, the band is still writing, playing, and putting out catchy guitar rock. A journalist recently wrote, “If there is a local rock N roll “Hall Of Fame” dUNETX should be inducted”.
dUNE has played shows with bands like, The Lemonheads, Spoon, Violent Femmes, Rev Horton Heat, Fastball, Better Than Ezra, Goo Goo Dolls, The Posies, Jerry Cantrell, Seether, Supersuckers, Electric 6, The Oh Sees, The Presidents of the USA, Local H, Superdrag, Steve Burns, Ian Moore, French Kicks, Dead Confederate, Kings X, Bowling For Soup, Royal Trux, plus a ton of cool local and regional bands over the years like; the Deathray Davies, Funland, Burden Brothers, Dash Rip Rock, Tablet, and Ben Kweller.
One music writer states. . . . .
dUNETX is the perfect combination of bubblegum pop and pure rock fury.The band remains perhaps Houston’s most overlooked outfit. Sure, they’ve gotten their props in the press and are “respected” by the scene and all. But something this big needs mass exposure. -cs
And more press . . . .
“What’s best about this band is there is no sense of pretension. dUNETX’s songs are fun songs — songs geared more toward an audience who is discriminating in its musical tastes.”
“Throw in some Weezer, a smidgen of The Beach Boys, and some early Nineties indie rock — specifically Smashing Pumpkins’ Gish and maybe some Fig Dish, Bob Mould, and Blake Babies — and you get a glimpse of what dUNETX sounds like. Goldenarm might very well be this summer’s party record — I can’t imagine college kids across the nation not having this on at some point during the day. – dc”
The bands 1999 release “Machowagon” and 2005 release “Goldenarm” were engineered and co produced by old friend Steve Ames of Moving Sidewalks, ZZ Top, and Kings X fame. Songs from both albums have been featured on XM, Sirius, used in independent films, commercials, and received rotation on college and mainstream radio.
