You might remember the 60s hits "Times of the Season," "She's Not There," and "Tell Her No."
They were hits by the British band, The Zombies.
The Zombies, featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, will be making an appearance at Penn's Peak tomorrow night at 8 p.m. Tickets are $27.
"Last year," says Blunstone, "we played in the UK, US, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Holland, Japan and the Philippines. It was incredible."
This year, the band has a new live album, three separate American tours in it (not to mention a festival in Central Park, a cruise with the Moody Blues and much more) and the group are constantly in demand for the prestigious US network television music shows, interviews and radio sessions.
Their records have become some of the best produced and distinctive in all of pop music. From their debut "She's Not There" to their final single "Time Of The Season," The Zombies will keep you movin'.
Ironically enough, they only released two albums in the 60's, but those two albums were full of amazing hits. Their second album, Odessey & Oracle, was recorded in 1967 right before they split up, but it remains one of their greatest artistic statements. Odessey & Oracle, and yes that is how they spelled Odessey due to the cover artist famously misspelling it.
After The Zombies break up, Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent pursued solo careers. They both met with huge success on the solo front, but agreed to rejoin forces after a 30 year hiatus.
They did not immediately call themselves The Zombies though. Rod was resisting that urge in order to respect the band's legacy. Finally in 2004, they released a new album, As Far As I Can See…, under the name The Zombies. After listening to the tracks, Rod and Colin realized something, "When we played the first mixes back, Colin and I were surprised to hear many resonances of our first band on the record, because they weren't achieved consciously."
