The vibrant and defiant thrash/hardcore unit Wrangler Brutes formed in 2001 in Los Angeles, CA around scene veterans Sam McPheeters (ex-vocalist of Born Against and Men's Recovery Project), guitarist Andy Coronado (Skull Control, Monorchid), drummer Brooks Headley (Born Against, Universal Order of Armageddon), and bassist Cundo Si Murad (Nazti Skins). The band released an eponymous, cassette-only demo on their own before being tapped by Kill Rock Stars for their proper debut, which they then recorded with Steve Albini. Released in October 2004, Zulu was a striking album that referenced vintage thrash and hardcore while remaining relentlessly in the present. ~ Johnny Loftus
