One document has persisted through all of this.
In 16 tracks, the 1982 full-length Vicious Circle (reissued this year on Indianapolis indie label, Secretly Canadian) captured the Zero Boys at the frenzied apex of their incisive anger. The outfit spent weeks rehearsing the material and recorded the LP in four hours. As they put together another album and revisit past stomping grounds, the group is gradually reclaiming their place as figureheads of Hardcore’s pioneering frontlines.
The band spends an evening thrashing at the Southgate House with Pincushion, The Dopamines and Hextall. Get Sound Advice here.
