THE ZEROS

Formed: London, England, UK

Band

One good single from this very minor band. Hungry is punked-up R&B with sneery Americanised vocals and twangy lead bits. I like it a lot, even if does sound like non-punks trying to be punks. A 1978 single called 'Something's Happening' is by another Zeros (and not the Californian ones, either). On the second single they were billed without the definite article.
