The MONSTER ZERO Newsletter #1 2019!

Happy New Year! The first two months went by like it was nothing but as we have just released our first release of 2019, and with two more in the starting blocks, we figured we drop you a line. Just because you know. Like casual. Between friends. Or lovers. Embrace the punkrock.

New Ratcliffs LP Pre-Sale Has Started!
New Hangups 7” Out Now!
New Yoohoos LP Out Soon!
Short Stuff
Rumour Has It...

Innsbruck basement punx The Ratcliffs are back with their 4th release on Monster Zero! Fronted by the mysterious yet accessible Paul Coyote, and backed up by Matt DeeCrack and Manu Dorkatron, the three-piece takes no prisoners. This is punkrock they don't deliver too often anymore. Think Queers, Hard-Ons, Mean Jeans and whole shitload of witty cleverness, mixed with feelings about love, hate and amazement. Hell Mental is as much an experience as it is a killer punkrock record. The kids and the experts know what's up, do you? The pre-sale bundle contains the exclusive clear green vinyl version, only available from Monster Zero and limited to 50 copies, and a fair-trade tote-bag with an killer design made by Chris Mugwump. Get it while they last.…/ratcliffs-the-hell-mental-…

No Expectations" is the 2nd EP by The Hangups from Sweden. 4 new songs in the greater 90s, early 2000s Lookout! tradition. Ale and his gang of Nordic poppunk amigos really deliver on this one. Made for you if you dig Screeching Weasel, Parasites, beer, records and sk8boarding. Goomba likes! Comes as a nice black 'n blue splatter 7", limited to 300 copies.…/hangups-the-no-expectation…

Due to the horror that is RSD, the release of the new Yoohoos LP has been moved back a little, but fear not my fellow sugarcoated poppunk candy fans. We will blast this one into the universe at the end of March. The record is called Up Goes The Rocket, it's super good and mixed and mastered by none other than Mass Giorgini. Stay super tuned!
