Zero 1 was formed in Hull, England late 1997 by Proc (vocals) and brothers Snaz (drums) and Dave (Guitar). Mainly rehearsing as a three piece before Jimbo of Freaks Union stood in on bass for their first gig at the Haworth Punk 'n' Oi! all-dayer the following year.
Bassist Pete then joined the band in time for their second gig supporting Duglas at the Adelphi in Hull a month later. After a further gig supporting Assert and Swellbelly's the band released a 6-track demo called A Country Fit for Zeros. The band played their final gig in Leicester before splitting up in 1999.
