Fusing the sentiments of early hardcore as well as the noises of D.C. post-punk, the Capitol Town Dusters began originally as the Dusters in 1996. Guitarist/vocalist Alec Bourgeois and drummer Benjamin Azzara met up when their particular Washington rings, Severin and Delta 72, split. Bassist Costs Colgrove, whose hardcore music group Foundation had performed displays with Azzara’s outdated music group Junction, emerged down from Upstate NY to join. Within a joint work between Bourgeois’ label Superbad Information and Dischord Information, the music group released two vinyl-only albums, Forest Fireplace/Seventeen 7″ in 1996 and a divide 10″ in 1997 with labelmates one of the most Secret Technique. Colgrove then still left the music group to start out a web site design business with Jawbox/Burning up Airlines guitarist Costs Barbot, as well as the music group renamed itself the Capitol Town Dusters. Tag Lacasse (Sicken, Ghoti Hook) loaded in on bass through the 1998 documenting of Simplicity, and Jesse Quitslund (Vile Cherubs, Make sure you) required over. The Dusters after that toured a lot of U.S. and European countries before returning house to focus on a new recording. They wouldn’t emerge once again until 2001, if they arrived of their self-imposed a vacation to work on a fresh album, 2002’s Rock and roll Creek.
