“This band immediately struck me as being punk as fuck and not giving three fucks about four fucks about being punk as fuck.”
“Their hard hitting, in the pocket punk got the crowd moving early and it was great to see a straight up punk band tear the place apart.”
“I can honestly say Zero Cool delivers the goods every time they hit the stage.”
“Zero Cool played a great, short set to kick things off (sic) I would say the show was a hit”
“Zero Cool was a great opener for the show, and are usually on the scene for most of my articles because they are a great local band and in my opinion a great addition to any punk show… in short Z.C. is a very talented young bunch and shows a lot of 80s punk influence, they have a lot of cool originals, and when they do play a cover it’s something classy – like ‘Six Pack’ (Black Flag) or ‘Sonic Reducer’ (Dead Boys).”
“Young Punk Wizards, They've crammed more on this plate then, Khazana buffet”
“I really dig your band, and I'm not just saying that. Cheers.”
“Zero Cool of course is always a treat to have on the stage, and a guaranteed source of high energy punk rock suss – leaning a little more towards old school 80s hardcore (before the toque and beard / piercings, tattoos era) playing punchy quick stuff along the lines of 7 Seconds / Battalion of Saints, and of course D.O.A. as well.”
“Zero Cool (sic) is a band that wants to rock the house first and foremost, and never fails to do so. ”
"Edmonton has a vibrant local music scene, with punk being one of the leading genres, and members of the scene being deeply involved in community-oriented fundraising events."
"Zero Cool has a ton of origional material, made up of primarily short blasts of punk rawk / old school hardcore, and very good tastes in punk cover tunes that never miss the mark."
"Punk powerhouses Zero Cool"
"How the hell do you have two Canadian bands?! Canada has some of the best bands in the world. Seriously, shit's crazy up there. Livid signed Zero Cool and the Pine Tarts, and I'm not kidding when I say this: they may be two of my favorite bands of all time."
"The guys from Zero Cool have been involved since day one. And thanks to Murphy — now a manager at the Mead Hall — the Punk Rock Food Fight will be celebrating it’s third consecutive year, and first time at one of Edmonton’s finest alternative music venues."
"Now, in a 40 minute set, you’d never expect to hear more than 15 songs from a band, but as is with 'Zero Cool'; they make it happen and sound good, too."
