A two-song digital single released May 7 by singer and guitarist Adam Anzio is both a preview for his forthcoming album, Gavels (out May 21), and a true reflection of punk's D.I.Y. ethos. The A-side, "Killed You," is a future album cut that owes a lot to 1970's American proto-punks Death, and to the faster, riff-driven post-punks, the Wipers. The virtual flipside, "Find It," borrows from the more accessible, dance-worthy dark pop of the '80s.
Anzio's ability to marry the sounds of these decades is impulsive, as these songs were created as part of the modern D.I.Y. process: A guitar, laptop, and whatever other instruments he can play coupled with a can-do attitude and a few bottles of Mexican Coke. There's even artwork that looks like it was made with M.S. Paint. Anzio did it all, and a lot of full bands would be hard pressed to top these songs in a proper studio.
Adam Anzio, Predator, and Acid Freaks play "Banned in ATL: a Bad Brains Tribute" at the Star Bar on Fri., May 10. $5. 9 p.m.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
