ABSOLUTE ZEROS Dreams Gone Sour 1998

by request


by JT Griffith
Former Chopper band members Steven Deal and Nick Appleby released Dreams Gone Sour, their only CD as the Absolute Zeros, in 1998 on Big Deal. The 15-track album mixes guitar-heavy power pop with vocal harmonies, and may be of interest to fans of Stiff Little Fingers, the Jam, Buffalo Tom, or Bob Mould and Sugar. Not too memorable, but a niche record that will be a used CD bin gem for some.
