WILD ZEROS: “Teenage Lifestyle” b/w “Vampire Girl”: 7”

Wild Zeros are a three-piece poppy garage punk band from France. The first song is a cover of The Penetrators’ “Teenage Lifestyle,” which although technically garage rock, sounds really Johnny Thunders-esque with some juvenile lyrics about chasing a girl, wanting to stay out late, and being a “boy making a lot of noise.” Big surprise a band singing basically a journal entry about being a turd teenager would have a name like The Penetrators. Second song is an energetic original about a girl who is a vampire who will “suck” various things. Glad this one didn’t have a lyric sheet. –Candace Hansen (Chickpea)
