If you caught their engaging "Goodbye Hello" on last issue's Cross Rhythms Experience you'll have some idea of what this exciting Welsh band from Blaina are about. I say some idea for Zero Defect are a band in transition, moving from being a stereotypical ministry band to one which, with their Britpop with funk and hip-hop overtones sound, are currently wowing fans in concert and sound like the kind of group EMI might sign as a potential new Oasis. In the meantime, you have this EP. Despite being a budget line production it has plenty of pizzazz with the songs "Goodbye Hello" and "Hole In The Dark" both good enough to be, in remixed form, on the band's debut CD. As that's now been put back to possibly November, get your cheques off to Blaina now. Despite the demo quality, I've a gut feel that this early release will be a collector's item a couple of years from now.
