Zero Boys Live At The Pizza Castle 1981
Indianapolis isn't the first place one would expect a raucous punk band to call home. Circa 1981, that idea was as ludicrous as thinking that one day people would walk around with 1,000-plus albums saved on a hunk of aluminium the size of a postage stamp. However, that's where old school punks Zero Boys hailed from and it caused quite a ruckus back then, bolstered by the band's raunchier, more aggressive take on the Ramones' simplistic beat. Still, as is the case with a lot of those "woulda, shoulda, coulda" bands, Zero Boys have always remained obscure, this DVD of one performance at a questionable establishment hoping to rekindle some interest. Yes, it's a great, updated bootleg culled from one camera and a passable microphone but the show itself is rather standard fare and for nostalgic purposes only. The same goes for extras such as a mini-documentary about the technology used to capture this "long-lost" (read: forgotten) performance and band stills. (Gnome Park)
