Indianapolis' Zero Boys were among the have-nots of American second-wave punk, its catalogue a subsistence diet of urgent, upended blasts of tuneful mucus. Because they broke up before amassing enough material to allow anyone to define an ascent or decline, there's a sort of eternal mystery of possibility surrounding the band. These days they're making the reunion rounds in the distant wake of another reissue, laying into 30-year old anthems as well suited to partying in a basement as to skateboarding on speed.
