Still Got That Hunger

Psychedelic rock survivors are still dreaming after five decades

The Zombies

When the Zombies sang “This Will Be Our Year” in 1967, they were selling themselves short — they’re still going nearly 50 years after their eerily psychedelic U.K. chamber-pop elegy Odessey and Oracle fused Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper into a lost classic. The Zombies have long since shed their pristine Sixties style; on their first album in four years, Still Got That Hunger, Rod Argent’s piano and Colin Blunstone’s vocals go for a more straightforward blues-rock sound. The most distinctively Zombies-like cut is the well-titled ballad “Chasing the Past,” where they’re hung up on a dream of yesterday, yet still aiming to “take tomorrow and give it hell.”
