Let Zero Boys into the pantheon!

Jason Diamond

Listen: Zero Boys, “Civilization's Lost”

I love the typical Husker Du, Replacements, Naked Raygun, Negative Approach hierarchy of Midwestern hardcore/independent gods, but I think it's about time a space is made for the album Vicious Circle by Zero Boys in the pantheon occupied by Zen Arcade, Throb Throb and the early singles on Touch and Go.

Apparently the people at the highly distinguished Secretly Canadian label are thinking the same thing, so they decided it's time to finally re-issue the album to come out on January 20 of the upcoming new year.

“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 '80s punk records, or one of the best records ever, period.”
