The Von Zippers

With their garage punk antics of organ soaked drunk rock, The Von Zippers accompany an additional trademark of sporting World War One uniforms from Germany. On top of their Brit-punk influence of The Damned and The Anti-Nowhere League, The Von Zippers debuted this sound outside of their native Calgary with their first mini-album Wow Em Down at Franzl's in 1997. Their follow-up full-length Bad Generation was released two years later, courtesy of Estrus Records; Blitzhacker followed in mid-2000. The VZ's returned to Estrus in July of 2003 with The Crime is Now!, their third full-length. ~ Mike DaRonco
