Every so often I get a new record that rips my head off. Today is one of those days! My brother gave this record to me for an early Christmas present. Holy crap it rips. Dust was formed in 1969 by Richie Wise and two teenagers, Kenny Aaronson and Marc Bell. The trio's producer and manager, Kenny Kerner, also wrote the group's lyrics. Their eponymous debut album was released on Kama Sutra Records in 1971, followed by a sophomore release, Hard Attack, issued on the same label the following year. Although Wise began writing material for a third album, the band dissolved due to lack of promotion and Wise's interest in producing. While the group only released these two albums, they later became of historical interest to collectors of early American heavy metal. Both albums were reissued on April 16, 2013, as a combined CD set titled Hard Attack / Dust (Legacy Recordings), as well as on vinyl on April 20 for Record Store Day. Guess who Marc Bell is? Marc Steven Bell (born July 15, 1952) is an American musician best known by his stage name Marky Ramone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_-CGUxRAyQ Guess who Richie Wise and Kenny Kerner are?
