Synopsis

Product Description
The long awaited re-issue of 1982's "Vicious Circle" from Indianapolis-based Zero Boys. Unlike most coast punk of the time, the Zero Boys were pointing the way to a scene that could accommodate heaping helpings of melody, intelligence, and rock 'n roll suss, not just turbo-charged ferocity. When the Ramones lost it, the Zero Boys found it - adding a slam brigade fist to the blitzkrieg beat. They managed to come up with one of the best early 80s punk records. "Vicious Circle" has been remastered from the original tapes. Liner notes by Jack Rabid. Between this and "History Of", the entire recorded output of this legendary Midwest punk band's original line up is finally collected.

Vicious Circle-CLASSIC
Jerry Henegar | Sanford, FL | 10/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Zero Boys w/ Terry Howe, guitar, were one of the best bands of the 80s & of all time as far as classic Punk. I also happen to be a big fan of Toxic Reasons, Terry's subsequent band (Bullets for You being my 1st intro to his guitar playing). I had the pleasure of not only meeting Terry & his wife, but having played w/ him in Urban Disturbance in Naples, FL in the early 90s. Terry's guitar playing is CLASSIC. You won't be disappointed if your a fan of SO Cal & DC Punk. Sheila, Terry is sorely missed."
Classic album, killer hardcore

"I love this album. One of the true undiscovered masterpieces. The playing is tight, the production is good without being too slick, and Paul Mahern is one of the most underrated singers of all time. Fast, short songs with melody. My favorites are "Dirty Alleys/Dirty Minds" and "Livin' in the 80's". I always recommend this album to my friends who like the early AFI stuff. Sorry, but most of us were just barely alive when the Zero Boys were at their most active."
