Dean & Dale (Laramie Dean & Jimmy Dale)
Dean was born in Troy, New York and grew up on the Hudson River. In 1995 he moved to Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Dean began playing at the Elvis Room, and recording with Jim Tierny, as well as Joe King of New Hampshire pop punk band The Queers. At his first show at the Elvis Room, Dean met Tamara Collins. Collins gave Dean extensive airplay on her punk rock radio show “No Rules” which aired on New Hampshire’s college radio station 91.3 WUNH.
In 1999, Dean released his first 7” EP titled “Listen to Laramie Dean …you can almost smell the rubber burn!”. One of the songs on this EP was also featured on the “Food Not Bombs” benefit compilation for Amnesty International, which also included tracks from The Unseen, The Ducky Boys and Anti-Flag.
In June of 2007, Dean recorded the full-length LP “Laramie Dean Plays Surf Riot!” in Miami Florida, which was released at the Misfits’ 30th anniversary tour.
In January 2008, Dean relocated to Los Angeles and made his first L.A. appearance at Largo with his friend, comedian and author Greg Behrendt. Backing Dean was Behrendt’s band, The Reigning Monarchs. A month later, Dean toured with Mike Palm and his band Agent Orange, and continues to tour with them on occasion.
