Duster biography
US outfit DUSTER was formed by multi-instrumentalists Clay Parton and Dove Amber sometime after the demise of their former band Mohinder in 1994.

They started releasing their own brand of low-fi space rock with distinct indie rock flavouring in 1997; at first with the single Transmission.

Around that time Jason Albertini, formerly of Queens of the Stone Age, joined the band. With their debut album Stratosphere mostly finished when he joined, he was only featured as a drummer on three compositions when the album was released in 1998; but the following years EP 1975 and the last studio effort made by the band, the year 2000 production Contemporary Movement saw Albertini handling numerous instruments just like his bandmates.

In addition to their recordings as Duster, they also released material using the moniker Valium Aggelein.

The current status of the band is unknown, the latest news of activity was published in 2004.

5 stars Duster was a lot of things for a few years in the '90's, and then they vanished. I guess first and foremost they were a slowcore band, a late-to-the-party hidden gem of a beautifully lethargic movement who fought second wave grunge's fire with a slow motion waterfall. But they certainly borrowed heavily from space rock and even a bit from stoner rock, really seeming to want to create the ultimate album to float away to even in its occasional heavy moments. The production on this is one of those championship moments of lo-fi; this album would not be the same if it weren't three big degrees or so more lo-fi than Neutral Milk Hotel. Oh, and the music itself? Turned out fantastic. It's a beautiful cloud that here and there will suddenly spit awe-inspiring lightning, with prerequisite thunder to boot. And there are a lot of surprises in some of the tracks, though still the very best moments are tracks like the "Moon Age"/"Heading For The Door" combo, which just sound right. A fairly better '90's indie album then even "Perfect From Now On", with sizable potential to be loved by progheads to boot.
Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
