“Imagine if Kurt Cobain sang was the lead singer for Blink 182 and that band then had a week long affair with Green Day. The resulting bastard love child would be the sound of Gusto. A solid band hailing from the upper regions of New York, Gusto has been silently building a following in the local circuit. A drummer, a bassist, and a vocal slinging guitar player, the line up follows the tried and true punk base. With driving bass lines and some wicked drum progressions, Gusto successfully resurrects everything we loved about the punk rockers of yester decade while instilling a much needed innovative boost to the dusty formula.”
