WILD ZEROS / PROTO IDIOT: Split: 7”

The split single just seems to be chugging along as the twenty-first century progresses. I’m seeing as many as ever it seems. This particular one appears to be a part of the “Jukebox Series” on Permanent Freak Records from France. Wild Zeros turn in two tunes of rockin’ punk with a real mid-tempo feel, and almost garage punk at times; very Rip Off Records-sounding. Proto Idiot are from the U.K. and kick out some very anthemic and spazzy-sounding punk. Almost like a street punk take on the Briefs or the Hatepinks. –Mike Frame (Permanent Freak, permanentfreak.bandcamp.com)
