Majik Dust –Don’t Walk Away

Majik Dust –Don’t Walk Away/ Fistacuffs –Burlap B-7782 (1977 US)

From St. Louis, Majik Dust feature the bastard son of the Move’s Do Ya twinned with a melody that naggingly hints of Something I’ve Got To Tell You (Glenda Collins/Honeycombs). Released in 1977 it just about sits on the right side  of melodic Hard Rock thanks to its rawness and Powerpop appeal. The heavier and rockier B side Fistacuffs is a near Ultimate Bonehead contender, but doesn’t quite reach potential heavyweight bliss. Majik Dust later metamorphosed into Boyfriend with the arrival of Bobby Flynn and released an LP in 1983
