When the Ramones lost it, the Zero Boys found it; Adding a slam brigade fist to the Blitzkrieg Beat. The Zero Boys managed to come with one of the best early 80’s punk records, or one of the best records ever, period.

From 1979 to 1983, the Indianapolis-based Zero Boys were the finest hardcore blitz in the Midwest if not all the lower 48 states. Compiled and released as a post-mortem following the band’s breakup, History Of... is the proof, if more was needed, that their
take of American hardcore wasn’t all white bread numbers. Yeah, they played shows with Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, and others but in Terry “Hollywood” Howe’s guitar there was harmonious terror and unstoppable cadence. Terry’s licks and chops — a leap beyond two or three chord punk — offered a zone and measured count for drummer Mark Cutsinger and bassist David “Tufty” Clough, a rhythm unit in par
with the Minutemen if not The Meters, to run lines like quicksilver. Meanwhile, frontman, Paul “Z” Mahern provides a constant wash from beginning to end.

Originally released in 1984 with a limited-edition reissue in 2009, this 40th anniversary edition includes the original LP of ‘History Of...’ and a 7” featuring four live recordings never previously pressed to vinyl and recorded at iconic hardcore/punk venue
Crazy Al’s in 1980: “Livin’ In The 80’s”, “Stick To Your Guns”, “Commies”, and “I’m Absent”.
