When I saw them descibed as "thrash", my heart sank.

If they'd kept it Nolan style it would be f*cking awesome.
I love the Zero Boys. I totally won't upload their album on my non-existent music blog, because that's hella illegal. Besides, I don't even have their CD on my computer since uploading CD's to your computer is a copyright violation according to the RIAA and iTunes.
Journalism is just a gun. It's only got one bullet in it, but if you aim right, that's all you need. Aim it right, and you can blow a kneecap off the world.
Zero Boys are great. They could play better than most hardcore bands I can think of.
my friends played a show with them a few months ago in Chicago... I wish I coulda gone, I love THE ZERO BOYS!
Wow, this thread is old.

I worked out why they sound promising before a listen.

It's because of the Dead Boys and Jimmy Zero.
