A suitably Halloween selection
Zombie Zombie

Saluting this weekend’s Halloween celebrations in style, the latest instalment of the Clash DJ podcast arrives courtesy of ghoulish purveyors of spooky Krautrock vibes, Zombie Zombie.

Aptly enough, the Parisian duo’s work is heavily influenced by cult horror flicks and general dark themes, making for a fitting Halloween tune selection, which begins with the sinister ambience of experimental act This Heat, before working its way through various wonderful oddities. These bizarre treats include the timeless electro of Scorpion Violente, a proggy Krautrock track from Oppenheimer Analysis and a classic from fellow French alt. electro-head Joakim.

To fully perfect the retro atmosphere, ZZ have also included a delightfully sentimental sample from cult director legend John Carpenter’s seminal flick ‘Escape From New York’. Frighteningly good stuff , and the Carpenter connection for Zombie Zombie doesn’t end there either, as the band are set to release their second album, ‘Zombie Zombie Plays John Carpenter’, next week, featuring the duo interpreting classic Carpenter soundtracks with their own dark electronica twist, including tracks from ‘The Thing’, ‘Assault on Precinct 13’ and – of course – ‘Halloween’.

Zombie Zombie will play a special Halloween live show this weekend, on Sunday 31 October at Corsica Studios, London, where they will perform their new album in full, followed by a gig on November 1 at Islington Mill, Salford, Manchester.
