All tied up Zero to Ø


Decided to remedy things here. Below the original BOMP release that was removed, I have posted up the self-titled 7" from Munster Records in Spain with a taste of the Mexican Ramones.

Always a band near & dear to this Ø, the Zeros formed in 1976 in Chula Vista, California. On vocals & guitar was Javier Escovedo of the super musickal Escovedo family. His brothers include: the famed Latin percussionists Coke & Pete(Pete’s daughter being Prince collaborator Sheila E); Mario, who fronted the hard-rock band The Dragons; & Alejandro of The Nuns notoriety & lengthy solo career (his latest being 2008s Real Animal produced by long-time Bowie cohort Tony Visconti). Robert Lopez also played guitar & now is more commonly know as El Vez. Filling out the group were Hector Penalosa on bass & Baba Chenelle on drums.

This records contains music recorded in 1977 & released on their first three 7"s (“Don’t Push Me Around” b/w “Wimp” - 1977, “Beat Your Heart Out” b/w “Wild Weekend” - 1978, & “Getting Nowhere Fast” b/w “They Say that [Everything’s Alright]” - 1980) & unreleased material from that same year.

Jerry's Kids

 UPDATE: This post was re-uploaded 09/19/2013. Enjoy, NØ.

How about this shit. A bunch of kids with muscular dystrophy making hardcore punk. Oh, wait a minute, not those Jerry’s Kids. This was one of the earliest Boston hardcore bands. They first appeared on the Modern Method Records This Is Boston, Not L.A. compilation in 1982. Shortly after, frontman Bryan Jones & rhythm guitarist Dave Aronson left the band. Bass player Rick Jones, Bryan’s brother picked up the vocals chores & Chris Doherty of Gang Green took over on rhythm guitar. They recorded this classic 12 song LP Is This My World? on X-Claim in 1983.

Tar - Handsome

UPDATE: This post was re-uploaded 11/17/2013. Enjoy, NØ.

Joe Stumble posted up the Tar Teetering 7“ over at Last Days of Man on Earth 2.0 so if you want more info about the band & whatnot, go over there. It just got me listening to & thinking about Tar again. It had been a while. Now I’m doing more of the same for you.

Engineered by Steve Albini May 7-8,1988 (“Mumper”, “Seam”, & “Mel’s”) & September 3,1988 (“Same”) & Iain Burgess September 17-18,1988 (“Static” & “Downtime”). Surprisingly enough, the tracks engineered by Burgess are the more ‘noise’ tracks & the Albini tracks are more straight ahead ‘punk rawk’, except for one, the almost ButtholeSurferish in-yer-face standout track of the mini,”Mel’s”. All songs mixed by Iain Burgess & Tar.

Recorded in the basement. Mixed upstairs in the back room off the kitchen. The basement flooded while we were upstairs mixing Downtime. Sorry Steve. Insert was nixed. These are the highlights:See these teeth...I will stay at the machine...shoo di no weh...Meet the rate...Gave you the gift...One more thing...

Tar - Handsome mini-lp,
