Piece of punk history in good, gently used condition. 1 of only 500 original copies pressed. Autographed by the late lead guitarist/songwriter Terry Hollywood/Terry Howe. The Zero Boys erupted as a hardcore rock quartet out of Indianapolis in the spring of 1979. "Within three weeks of their first practice - in the grand tradition of most great hardcore bands -- the band was playing its first show, and six months later the bandmembers found themselves recording their first EP. That debut, Livin' in the '80s (released in 1980), was influenced by the more well-known groups of the time, such as the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and Dictators, who were on major labels and actually got some face time in the mainstream rock press. The EP got some very minor attention, given that there were only 500 copies pressed, but forces both external and internal to the Zero Boys were to lay the groundwork for their follow-up, which was to be the acclaimed mark they had wished to leave." - Spotify Terry Howe (aka Hollywood) was a friend of mine. We went to high school together (when he was there), and appeared opposite each other in the senior class play. Once I even visited him and the band in Indianapolis. He gave me this EP as a gift and signed it for me on both sides of the sleeve. I was very sad when I found out Terry had died of a drug overdose, but I can't say I was surprised. I would like this EP to go to a fan.
