Αν η “Άχρηστη Γενιά” εξέπληξε με την αμεσότητα του Ελληνικού στίχου και η “Ζούγκλα” επιβεβαίωσε τη διάθεση της μπάντας για εξέλιξη και πειραματισμό, το “Zero Hits” έρχεται αποφασισμένο να σαρώσει τα πάντα στο διάβα του και να επιβεβαιώσει οριστικά και αμετάκλητα πως εδώ έχουμε να κάνουμε με ένα σπουδαίο συγκρότημα. Από το διονυσιακό “Έλα”, τα χαρακτηριστικά πνευστά στο “Κενό” και το κολλητικό “Φυλακή” μέχρι τα αλα Stooges περάσματα της κιθάρας και του σαξόφωνου στο αυτοβιογραφικό “Βραδυνή Βάρδια” και το βγαλμένο από τα ψυχεδελικά 60s “Αδιάφορες Ματιές”, το ”Zero Hits” παρουσιάζει τους Bazooka πιο φρέσκους και δυναμικούς από ποτέ, κάνοντας τον τίτλο του δίσκου να μοιάζει τελείως ειρωνικός. Ηχογραφημένο στο Electric Highway Studio με μηχανικό ήχου τον Γιάννη Βούλγαρη και σε παραγωγή του ίδιου του συγκροτήματος, το ”Zero Hits” ακούγεται μόνο ΔΥΝΑΤΑ. Κυκλοφορεί στις 18 Ιανουαρίου σε μαύρο και γαλάζιο βινύλιο, CD και Digital album από την Inner Ear. Bazooka: Ξάνθος Παπανικολάου, Βασίλης Τζελέπης, Γιάννης Βούλγαρης, Άρης Ράμμος

R.I.P. - Black Leather

After several years of hammering the west coast with the blunt scythe of street-doom, R.I.P. finally committed to tape an introductory will and testament for the rest of the world to tremble to. “In the Wind” closes the casket on the trends and exhumes the notion that doom isn’t about how slow and de-tuned you can play, but about fear, death, leather and playing as heavy as possible.

Leaf Hound - Sad Road To The Sea

Leaf Hound were one of the dozens of heavy rock bands that evolved during the late-'60s British blues-rock boom. Rhythm guitarist Derek Brooks and his brother, Stuart Brooks, had been in the Black Cat Bones, a South London-based band that at one time featured Free's Paul Kossoff. Vocalist Peter French and his cousin, lead guitarist Mick Halls, had been in several London groups: Switch, Erotic Eel, Joe Poe, and the Brunning Sunflower Blues Band (featuring Bob Brunning).
In the latter half of 1970, after the Black Cat Bones' lead guitarist Rod Price quit (he was heading off to join Foghat), the Brooks brothers formed a new group with Halls and French, drafting in newcomer Keith George Young on drums. This new group -- christened Leaf Hound, a name found in an anthology of stories by horror writer Herbert Van Thal -- recorded "Barbed Wire Sandwich" for Decca's Nova subsidiary in 1969, and soon were playing shows in England, reportedly blowing headliners UFO off-stage.
