Dust –Rebound

Dust –Rebound/Pieces -20th Century Records BTC 1009 (1975 UK)

Not to be confused with the US power trio (with Mark Bell) of the same name, this version of Dust was possibly from Wolverhampton. Rebound is a fresh sounding slice of Glam Pop with more than a nod to 10CC (check out the Rubber Bullets rhythmic chug and the backing vocals).The single has a great production by Tony Atkins, who’s name has been appearing frequently on many recent purchases (Galahad, Thunder Road etc…) and is becoming something of a trade mark of quality or at least a name to look out for. Not as boisterous as other Black country Glam merchants, Rebound is a fine Pop tune –enjoy!

Hi there. My dad is Paul Jenkins who played guitar and co wrote with Dust back in the 1970s. You're right they were from the black Country. They also made an appearance on New Faces to promote the single along with major support roles around the UK but unfortunately the single never lifted and the band were dropped by the label. Shortly after my dad and the drummer left to join Freddie and the Dreamers but his tenure was short lived due my mother expecting me! Great to hear it on the Web and someone somewhere likes it. Cheers David Jenkins
