By mid-1997, Damaged Goods had released a four track EP, and Dustball were picked as one of the four priority bands to be broadcast on Steve Lamacq's Evening Session as part of Radio 1's Sound City. A joint EP ('A Quick One Too') with Nought was released to coincide with the event, and attracted the attentions of John Peel, for whom the band recorded three sessions. The album 'Quality But Hers' appeared in special dust ball packaging in 1998.
The band subsequently decided to split, but reappeared briefly as Mote, before recruiting the services of former Unbelievable Truth drummer Nigel Powell. They've come back stronger than ever as Dustball with a whole host of swanky new songs to show off.
