  1. Gaunt

    Gaunt was a pop punk band formed in Columbus, Ohio, in 1991. The original lineup formed from the ashes of the short-lived and punkadelic Black Juju, and consisted of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Jerry Wick, bassist Eric Barth and drummer Jeff Regensburger. Jim Weber soon joined on second guitar only to leave just as quickly, and following his departure guitarist/songwriter Jovan Karcic joined. Barth and Regensburger would also later leave and be replaced by a series of successors including Bret Lewis and Brett Falcon on bass, and Nick Youngblood and Sam Brown on drums.
