Live Review: The Zombies @ The Birchmere, 7/17/17

I didn’t plan on reviewing this show. Having reviewed (and been totally wowed by) The Zombies once before, this was meant to be an off duty outing. I bought tickets to the show as a birthday present for my mother (who’s a huge fan of the band), and I was so serious about being a total spectator that I didn’t even have a notebook with me at the show. But as the set went on, it became apparent that I would once again be talking about just how much I love seeing The Zombies live.

I wasn’t alone in that ...

NonCOMM Recap: The Zombies rekindle old flames at World Cafe Live

The Zombies | photo by Jeremy Zimmerman for WXPN | jeremy-zim.com

Long running British pop songsmiths The Zombies performed a Free at Noon set for an eager crowd today at NonCOMM. The band, active mostly during the late 60s and known for the breathless “Time of the Season” and the infectious earworm “Tell Her No,” showed the World Cafe Live crowd that they still had it and then some.

Founding members Colin Blunstone on vocals and Rod Argent on keys sounded impeccable, and rounded the lineup out with bassist Jim Rodford (Argent’s cousin) and his son Steve on drums, as well as guitarist Tom Toomey.

Last year, the current lineup released Still Got That Hunger, and today’s set mixed in songs from it – “I Want You Back Again,” “Movin On” and “Edge of the Rainbow” – with the classics, wrapping the set with their swooning 1964 single “She’s Not There,” which rekindled the flame with many a long-time fan in the audience.

Good Cover Version #11: Una Mujer Expansiva Does The Zombies

Source: Fuzzy Logic

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

I really, really, really love The Zombies. To me, they’re a sometimes underappreciated part of that British Invasion of the 1960s. But in some ways, they actually played a big part in the birth of psych rock, and y’all know that counts for a lot in my book.
