The Zombies

The Zombies

Though the Zombies had several major hits, their career was a frustrating one. After winning a rock-band contest held by a local newspaper, they auditioned with British Decca in 1964. That July, the electric-piano-centered "She's Not There" was released; it became a worldwide smash, going to #2 in America. In 1967 they recorded a final LP, Odessey and Oracle. They broke up two weeks after it was completed. When it was released, in late 1968, it yielded a #1 gold hit in “Time of the Season.” The band declined to re-form, although sizable sums were offered to the musicians.
