Zombie Zombie is Etienne Jaumet and Cosmic Neman (who is also the drummer of french fun-folksters Herman Düne). The french duo produce a kind of sweaty elektro-kraut horror-disco that is informed once more by the aesthetic of film directors John Carpenter, George A. Romero and Dario Argento and respectively Goblin, who composed many of the latter's scores), using instruments like vintage synths or space echo tape delay units combined with heavy drums and screaming voices. The debut Zombie Zombie
EP appeared in 2006 on Boomboomtchak, their first full-length A Land For Renegades
was released on the French label Versatile in 2008. The album was recorded and mixed at their studio in Paris with the producer Antoine Gaillet, who has also worked with artists like M83 and Placebo. Etienne Jaumet is also in groups Flóp and The Married Monk.
Their latest release, which they will also perform tonight, Zombie Zombie Plays John Carpenter
is a tribute to the director and composer, channeling Carpenter's themes into long-form, spooky but groovy tracks. It's perfect music for dancing at a midnight matinee. Be prepared to spill your popcorn.
