Legendary Cali punks THE ZEROS are set to play their first ever dates in the UK next month!
The band sometimes referred to as 'the Mexican Ramones' came together in high school in Chula Vista, Southern California in 1976. Their original four-piece line-up featured singer and guitarist Javier Escovedo – the middle of the three super-talented Escovedo brothers - and guitarist Robert Lopez – later to find fame as ‘Mexican Elvis’, El Vez. They signed to the legendary Bomp! label and the following year released the classic single ‘Wimp’ – later covered by the Hoodoo Gurus – backed with ‘Don’t Push Me Around’. Originally splitting in 1980, they reconvened for a new album in ’95 and this time round have been active since 2007.
Still featuring Escovedo and drummer Baba Chenelle, The Zeros play the following dates…
1 Mar – Shacklewell Arms, London (w/ Johnny Throttle & The Speedways)
2 Mar – Temple Of Boom, Leeds (w/ The X-Ray Eyes)
3 Mar – The Chameleon, Nottingham (w/ The Eviltones)
4 Mar – Pipeline Club, Brighton (Randy Savages)
Tickets for the London gig are available here.
