Biography

by Mike DaRonco

After departing from Helium and making the environment transition from Boston to Portland, Oregon, singer/ guitarist Jason Hatfield met up with some of the locals who eventually took the shape of Star Hustler. Accompanied by guitarist/ vocalist Andrew Levitt, drummer Mike Clark and bassist Mikhael Bortz, the completed line up released two demos before hooking up with Dirt Records out of New York City. After releasing their first EP entitled Drowning in 1995, many of comparisons to Hatfield's previous band Helium followed before their first album Mandicant came out in 1996. Star Hustler's second album Vapid Drivel was also released on Dirt the next year.

Mendicant is in my top ten forgotten albums of the 90s. Actually, a lot of Dirt Records releases fall into that category.
