Zero Boys (us)
The Zero Boys were a hardcore punk quartet from Indianapolis, Indiana fronted by Paul Mahern . Other members included bassist David “Tufty” Clough, drummer Mark Cutsinger and guitarist Vess Ruhtenberg . Their first release, Livin’ in the ’80s, was a 7″ EP released by the band on their home-brew Z-Disc label. Their debut full length album, Vicious Circle, was released in 1982 with its distinctively ugly bright yellow cover on the local label Nimrod Records.
Many punk fans nationwide were surprised to find a band like the Zero Boys coming out of the Midwest rather than from the larger and more established scenes in and around Los Angeles, Washington DC, New York City and elsewhere. Vicious Circle was reissued on Toxic Shock later in the 1980s, with added bonus tracks taken from the Affirmation Records compilations LPs The Master Tape and The Master Tapes 2. It was reissued again in 2000 by Lookout! Records, without the Master Tape tracks, but with two additional songs from the original album sessions, “She Said Goodbye” and “Slam and Worm”, which had been given limited release on a 7″ single.
Angry and catchy Hardcore punk in the classic K-town vein.
Young & fast HC punk with a slight metallic tinge
