Hard Attack / Dust (Sony Legacy)
Reviewed by Michael Toland, Fri., Aug. 2, 2013
When NYC power trio Dust made its pair of records in the early Seventies, the term "heavy metal" wasn't in wide use yet, and neither were its signifiers. Thus guitarist Richie Wise (a producer for Kiss), bassist Kenny Aaronson (drummer for everyone from Bob Dylan to Hall & Oates), and drummer Marc Bell (later Marky Ramone) tuned up acoustic guitars and pedal steel alongside post-psych burners. A single CD overflows the band's entire oeuvre via compositional grit.
