Zero Hits by Bazooka
If “Ahristi Genia (Useless Generation)” surprised everyone with the directness of Greek lyrics and “Zougla (Jungle)” made clear the band’s intention to move forward and experiment, “Zero Hits” is determined to sweep everything away and definitively and irrevocably confirm that we are dealing with a great band.
From the Dionysian “Ela (Come)”, the characteristic wind instruments in “Keno (Void)” and “Filaki (Prison)” to the Stoogesque guitar and saxophone sounds in the autobiographical “Vradini Vardia (Night Shift)» and the psychedelic 60s “Adiafores Maties (Indifferent Glances)”, “Zero Hits” presents Bazooka more fresh and dynamic than ever, making the title of the album sound totally ironic.
Recorded at Electric Highway Studio with sound engineer band member John Vulgaris and produced by the band themselves, ”Zero Hits” must be played LOUD.
Out on January 18th on black and light blue vinyl, CD and Digital album via Inner Ear.
