Zombie Zombie Plays John Carpenter (EP)
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Versatile Records
The French duo Zombie Zombie isn't a cover band, but they play one on this mini-album, tackling the work of the celebrated film composer John Carpenter. Carpenter and his collaborator Alan Howarth are famous for the sense of funky dread their electronics-laced soundtracks brought to films like Halloween and Escape From New York; armed with rock drums and analog synths, Zombie Zombie do a compelling job of translating Carpenter's music from the silver screen to the sweaty club.
