Description

Admittedly, Indianapolis has never really been known for producing much in the way of bands, whether punk or pop or otherwise. But in the late '70s/early '80s, the Midwestern city produced a band whose short-lived first phase (more on that later) produced one of the more memorable full-length hardcore albums of all time. The band, dubbed the Zero Boys, was formed in the spring of 1979 when singer Paul Mahern "discovered" the Sex Pistols in Creem magazine and roped in guitarist Terry Hollywood, bassist John Mitchell, and drummer Mark Cutsinger. Within three weeks of their first practice -- in the grand tradition of most great hardcore bands -- the band was playing its first show, and six months later the bandmembers found themselves recording their first EP. That debut, Livin' in the '80s (released in 1980), was influenced by the more well-known groups of the time, such as the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and Dictators, who were on major labels and actually got some face time in the mainstream rock press.

The EP got some very minor attention, given that there were only 500 copies pressed, but forces both external and internal to the Zero Boys were to lay the groundwork for their follow-up, which was to be the acclaimed mark they had wished to leave.
