Zero Boys- History Of The Zero Boys LP. When hardcore spread across the nation in the early '80s, there were few corners of the U.S. left unscathed. While everyone knows the names of coastal heroes like Black Flag and Minor Threat, bands that scorched the cornfields and battered factories of the Midwest went largely unheralded. And Indianapolis's Zero Boys were definately one of those overlooked outfits. History of the Zero Boys fills in all the blanks left behind by their sole studio LP, VICIOUS CIRCLE, ensuring that their entire recorded output is available. This is rapid-fire Midwest hardcore, but studded with undercover pop melodies and served up with surprisingly intricate musicianship. Bluesy hard rock licks color songs like "Johnny Better Get" and "Human Body," and fierce energizing riffs course through fast tracks like "Down The Drain."
