(Self – released) 2014.
CD – Glam punk/garage rock – FRANCE

THE ZOMBI DANDIES..CDCoverThe Zombie Dandies are project/band of two interesting guys from Normandy, France. Marty Dandy (drums, bass, guitar and vocals), and K 1000 Zombie (guitar and vocals), started out in 2011 year, and in following 2012, they have released an EP, in old – fashionable DIY manner.

“Lo-Fi Heroes” is their first full-length album with 13 tracks in, done with interesting glam punk views, with additional package of garage rock idioms, released a few months ago. Its stylish visions are  in some parts strange , in other parts pretty melodic, with interesting lyrical approaches and unexpected performing lines. In some aspects reminds on late 70’s USA horror/garage acts, but also posses enough originality as well. A production is simply, clear and in other hand poor, but that was their decision. Without a too much expectations , a French fellows drives own cadillac in only possible positive way, and that’s a most important thing..for now…


Iz Normandije, Francuska, dolaze dva momka koja su pokrenula bend/projekat nazvan – The Zombie Dandies. Startovali su 2011-e, da bi sledece, 2012- godine u sopstvenoj reziji, u starom dobrom DIY maniru objavili EP izdanje. Pre nekoliko meseci, na slican nacin realizuju i prvi full-length, na kojem se naslo 13 numera.

Sa jedne strane oslanjaju se na tradiciju glam punk forme, kojoj dodaju garage rock idiome. Takva kombinacija zna da zazvuci prilicno cudno, mada u isti mah njihovi sonngovi zadrzavaju neocekivanu melodicnost i slusljivost. Podsecaju u odredjenoj meri na USA horror/garage aktove iz druge polovine 70-tih  godina, mada im se ni jednog momenta ne moze oduzeti originalnost koja je izrazena i vidljiva. Produkcija njihovog albuma je jednostavna i jasna, takodje i vrlo “siromasna” , ali u krajnjoj liniji to je bio njihov finalni izbor. Na kraju, moze se reci da bez mnogo ocekivanja, Francuzi guraju svoj film i voze sopstveni kadilak na nacin koji se njima svidja, ne upustajuci se u trendovske  igre. A to je i najvaznije.. bar za sada i u ovoj fazi njihove karijere…
