Zombie Zombie: UK tour
It's been a while since I've featured Zombie Zombie on the blog, and the fact that they're touring the UK at
the moment certainly gives me good cause to.
They played Glasgow last night, play Manchester tonight and London the following night.
There are many bands playing electronic music, but Zombie Zombie are among the few to make full use of the potential for the sinister in their medium and exploit the underlying strangeness of electronic sound.
Electonic music was a common element in horror movies of the 70s and 80s, and Zombie Zombie have not forgotten this dusty corner of the record collection.
They're previously provided live soundtracks for the film Battleship Potemkin, and have released their versions of the horror soundtracks composed by John Carpenter for his movies.
However, their own material shows that they're a great band in their own right.
