Zombie Zombie + special guests Shmoo

  • Tickets are avail...

French electro-horror pop outfit Zombie Zombie bring their retrograde, John Carpenter-inspired sound to Band on the Wall. Chiller and thriller in equal measure.

Taking as starting point the pioneering electronic music from artist like Suicide, Silver Apples and Raymond Scott spiked with the film scores of John Carpenter and George Romero, Zombie Zombie use original analogue synths, theremin. delay pedals, bongos and space echo to stunning effect. In 2010 their album Zombie Zombie plays John Carpenter received rave reviews and a whole batcage full of new fans. The band has now developed into a trio with new member Doc Schonberg (Antilles / The Berg Sans Nipple) and an ever-expanding sound since their last Sun Ra cover single and the release of Rituals of a New World in 2012. Uneasy listening and hypnotically captivating, it’s Tales of the Unexpected for your ears.

Support tonight from special guests Shmoo – a fresh electro-pop duo, hotly tipped by the BBC as a “junior orbital” who “mix mammoth dance, raw garage band and full blown pop brilliantly”.
