Album Notes
Founded at Aleph studio in 2003 as THRUSTER! has played live 7 times. Charging ahead with full head of steam through recording and playing important live shows in the Northwestern United States, THRUSTER! has learned that the name THRUSTER! has and is being used by many other outfits. We challenge them to a duel to the rights of the name THRUSTER! THRUSTER! only plays REALLY cool shows. Sean Westergaard of had this to say about the first ep: Tim Young is one of the most creative guitarists out there. Best known for his work with Wayne Horvitz and Zony Mash, he's been creating a very original style with his mastery of tone and effects and the near-complete absence of clichéd guitar licks. Thruster is his power trio project with bass player Kaveh Rastegar and ubiquitous Seattle drummer Matt Chamberlain. The band covers a lot of musical territory, from the Monk meets hard rock of "Green Heat" to the ominous spy-surf sounds of "The Tick" to the beautiful "Echoes of Peg." Young's playing is never less than interesting, and at times is simply amazing (check "Afterburner"). Guitar fans will surely be impressed, but this is an album worth checking out for anyone interested in good instrumental rock.

beautiful and heavy!!!!
Beautiful compositions and one of the heaviest sounds I've heard in along time. Thruster has what most bands this heavy don't; articulation and dynamics. Live it!

Shawn Bauer

Thruster! earn their exclamation mark...
...with the sort of jazz rock that stiffens the arm hairs of NYC avant-garde venue Tonic patrons. Alternates between Red-era King Crimson's thorny, brainy convolutions, Hendrix's well-articulated bombast, and Calexico's blasted, beatific prairie meditations.

avant garde guitar players dream
This record is an avant garde guitar players dream! This CD had all my house pets hiding under the furniture. If you like players like Jim Campilango, Mike Stern, John Scofield or Mr. Bungle, you will love this record. Green heat is a solid production with enough subtleties to keep you interested even after many listens. I love waffles – bh


100% Original
Green Heat sounds like many things, but borrows from none. A breathtakingly original venture into rock/fusion, Thruster! never sounds mundane, directionless, or boring. From the cooler-than-you groove of "Pot Roast" to the heartbreaking chord progression of "Blossom," this disc is a must-have for fans of Ephel Duath, June of 44, King Crimson, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and any fan of any prog/fusion outfit anywhere. Outstanding!!!
