Formed around 1968, the group featured vocalist/guitarist Richie Wise and the teenaged rhythm section of bassist Kenny Aaronson (who also doubled on slide and steel guitars) and drummer Marc Bell. Dust released their self-titled debut album in 1971 on Neil Bogart's pre-Casablanca label Kama Sutra. The follow-up, 1972's Hard Attack, sharpened the band's edge and intensified the power of their approach. Their roots and influences can be found in Blue Cheer, Iron Butterfly and Vanilla Fudge. Dust are a forgotten New York band that needs to be rediscovered by any fan of psychedelic and hard rock music. I'm told this was called 'Downer Rock' in the '70s. If you love Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Uriah Heep, Pentagram or any of the stoner and doom bands of today, you will be very pleasantly surprised by this. Mark Bell (aka Marky Ramone) was the drummer in this band prior to joining the more well known quartet, but this band is a whole different bag of boulders.
