"End of the Night"

" They're flipping good arn't they! " - Chris Bennion

"Boozestock Monday at the Marr's Bar, Worcester 28.12.09"

Kicking off at the Marr's Bar in Worcester with the first-ever home gig from local ska-punk outfit Imprint Zero.

I was tremendously impressed with this trio who have more than a bit of Half-Man-Half-Bicuit humour about them.

Stacey Munn of Rhythm & Booze compared them with anarchic occasional visitors-to-these-parts Mybe from Sheffield - praise indeed!

Nursery Rhymes for a Messed up Mind (EP)

'Talking Me to Death' was a tune featured on BRMB 96.4FM early 2010.

'Cracked Number Plate' was played on Youthcomm 106.7FM December 2009



During their education at the Worcester College of Technology, Dan, Joe and Oli found themselves endlessly jamming at any free moment they encountered. Dan Tocchini, now studying for a Foundation Degree in music technology, and Joe Bent, a National Diploma in music technology, had been to high school together in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, where they frequently rehearsed their favourite tunes as a small band they entitled 'Jonny C'ant Dance'. Upon attending the Worcester College of Technology they met Oli Grizzell, a former Emergency Room Guitarist, vocalist and song writer who also studies the National Diploma alongside Joe.
It wasn't until Oli and Joe's second year of studying Music Technology that the three of them agreed to form as the official ska/punk trio Imprint Zero.

The very first gig played was in Joe and Dan's old high school in Chipping Campden. Playing just five or six tunes, they quickly won over the support of their old buddies. The band's image and reputation exploded from this point onwards, as they selected fifth gear and invested in professional musical equipment and band merchandise. Imprint Zero's second gig was a headlining slot at Eddies Rock Club in Birmingham. This quite astonishing progression in such a short space of time is what seperates Imprint Zero from most other artists.

By January 2010, Imprint Zero had been broadcast on Youthcomm 106.7FM and even BRMB 96.4FM. Promoters interested in Imprint Zero should expect nothing less than ultimate determination and full commitment. The band never leave a gig without sharing their full thanks with the organizers.

The kind of show Imprint Zero can deliver to fans, can be simply described as 'bloody good'! They combine fast, ska, off-beat guitar with standard punk conventions to appeal to a wide variety of fans. Those seeking rap and RnB music have been proven to admire Imprint Zero's tunes, as too have those seeking rock and punk.

At each gig they play their fanbase grows. And for a band which formed just a few months ago, a new standard in the ska/punk chapter of music has been written.

By the words of Dan Tocchini... Let's play some ska guitar!!!
