Review: Dust "Hard Attack/Dust"

Before Kenny Aaronson became famous for his gigs with A-listers like Hall & Oates, Bob Dylan, the New York Dolls, and Rick Derringer, he was a Brooklyn teenager in Dust, whose two recently reissued early-’70s albums capture his distorted, fierce approach.

Before Kenny Aaronson became famous for his gigs with A-listers like Hall & Oates, Bob Dylan, the New York Dolls, and Rick Derringer, he was a Brooklyn teenager in Dust, whose two recently reissued early-’70s albums capture his distorted, fierce approach. You can clearly hear him channeling elements of John Entwistle, Jack Bruce, Tim Bogert, and Paul Samwell-Smith, and his pick-driven solo on “Suicide” and the scorcher “Loose Goose” should establish Aaronson’s rightful place alongside such heavyweights.
