///Codename: Dustsucker is an album by the post-rock band Bark Psychosis, released in 2004 on Fire Records. It was recorded at DustSucker Sound, a private studio run by Graham Sutton in east London, between 1999 and 2004. The album notably features the contributions of Lee Harris, the drummer and percussionist of early post-rock purveyors Talk Talk.

In the album the band continues to use conventional rock instruments in songs that are structured unconventionally, as they did in their earlier releases. Rather than the familiar alternation of verse and chorus, the songs mostly develop as a succession of related sections. "400 Winters" has an intro, a verse, a long chorus-like section, then the rhythm and arrangement change for a long coda section, which fades to be replaced by a chord sequence on piano and what appears to be a distorted answerphone message. "Shapeshifting" follows a similar structure. "Burning the City" is based around a three bar pattern, in contrast to rock's usual 4, 8 or 12 bar structures.

"400 Winters", along with remixes of three of the album's other tracks, was released as an EP in 2005.
