Originally a trio, they were led by Steve Godfrey (guitar/vocals, b.1959, Walthamstow, London), the cousin of Jerry Shirley of Humble Pie. The two other members were Phil Gaylor (drums/vocals) and Steve Cotton (bass/vocals). They released a single called "Hungry" in November 1977 on the Small Wonder Records label. "Hungry" was No 1 in the NME punk chart. That same month, they recorded four songs, including "Hungry," for BBC Radio 1 with John Peel. Paul Miller (guitar/vocals) joined in early 1978. The same year Hugh Stanley Clark became their manager and re signed the band to "The Label". They released a second single a year later, "What's Wrong with Pop Group".
Somewhere in the 2000s, Steve Godfrey created a Myspace page, and posted The Zeros entire discography as well as a series of previously unheard recording sessions and demos.
