RUST hit us in the face hard with thier aggressive fat street hardcorepunk.Gazz on vocals toatally rules the stage with his aggressive in your face Henry Rollins style attacking vocals. DD Black on guitar delivers a fat high speed Detriot/Radio Birdman cracking sound.This band has recently returned from a successful tour of The UK supporting bands such as The Exploited,H2O, and The UK Subs.With lots of Oi Oi and aggressive street punk chanting,the band rips through such songs as Bang Bang Bang,Black Rats,Skinhead from the burbs (a realy catchy track) You aint lived till you've lived in a car,Rock N Roll gunslinger(with its big throbbing bass guitar intro)and finished with another catchy chanting punk tune Out in the storm which had the crowd yellling for more.
