HARDWARES

DUST

Hard Attack/Dust

(Sony/Legacy)

Reviewed by : Kelley Simms
Rating : 9.0

Brooklyn-based DUST is an overlooked gem from the late sixties/early seventies. They followed the musical path of SABBATH, ZEPPELIN, MOUNTAIN, BLUE CHEER and CREAM. Dubbed as one of the first American proto-metal bands, Dust never flourished like they should have. After two albums, Dust fizzled out and faded away, with each member moving on to more esteemed and lucrative musical endeavors. Marc Bell took up the drum throne for the RAMONES, bassist Kenny Aaronson played with RICK DERRINGER, SAMMY HAGAR, JOAN JETT and others while guitarist/vocalist Richie Wise went on to co-produce the first two KISS albums as well as many others. Dust’s two cult classic albums, 1971’s self-titled debut and 1972’s Hard Attack, long since out of print, have both been remastered and reissued by Sony/Legacy as one CD. Dust’s love and passion for rock might have outweighed their ability and talent at the time, but they sure knew how to rock. Heavy compositions such as ‘Suicide,’ their definitive song, and ‘Love Me Hard’ are chugging rockers. ‘Stone Woman’ and ‘From A Dry Camel’ display some well-placed grooves. Melodic ditties such as ‘I Been Thinking’ and ‘Walk in the Soft Rain’ show the band’s versatility while numbers such as ‘Goin’ Easy’ and ‘How Many Horses’ display a laid-back, bluesy swagger. The retro rock resurgence is at an all-time high right now, and if you haven’t yet discovered Dust, don’t let these guys slip by twice.
