The Zombies were magnificent last night, playing Odessey & Oracle, one of the greatest albums.
I wonder, though, if nme.com were at the same gig as me. They seem to think Rob Zombie is the singer in The Zombies, not Colin Blunstone (who, incidentally, proved that he’s still a wonderful singer), and have illustrated their news story with the above photo. I don't think they published that picture as a joke; I think they is a thick.
The Zombies will be playing in London again on Thursday at the ChildLine benefit gig. Roger Daltrey “of The Who” (oh, that Roger Daltrey) is headlining. I’m scratching my head here, trying to think why that nice Pete Townshend isn’t playing.
That onanistic ode, Pictures of Lily, still sounds odd, doesn’t it…
