Get The Zombies in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

I’ve written about The Zombies on here before – they’re one of my top bands.  I went to see them last week when they played The Komedia at Bath and they were absolutely wonderful, even better than when we saw them in Bristol a couple of years ago.  They played a great set, ranging from 1964 to the current day with their latest album Still Got That Hunger – of the tracks they played from this album Edge of the Rainbow sounds particularly good live.

Here’s the set list – it was in two parts (we got part two and managed to nab a photograph of the other half):

And here’s a few photos of the band courtesy of Dave Tinkham at Datapanik Design:

The Komedia is a really nice venue with excellent sound quality and we managed to bag ourselves seats on the front row.  Everyone in the audience was enthusiastic; there were some people in the row behind us who were singing along doing harmonies and they had really great voices, which makes a change and was nice to hear.  There were standing ovations for The Zombies and everybody sang along with the encore God Gave Rock and Roll To You.  What a wonderful night it was!

If you go and see The Zombies – and I recommend that you do – be sure to go to their merchandise stall; Colin and Rod sign pretty much everything and there’s no extra charge for that.  I bought myself a signed Zombies Christmas decoration this year!

Anyway, here’s the thing:  during the concert Rod Argent said that The Zombies have been nominated for a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  They definitely deserve a place (if they want one!), so I have been voting for them every day since the concert.  You can vote once a day until 5 December 2017.  It would be really nice if they got voted in, so please vote for The Zombies if you are willing / able.  You can do it here:  VOTE FOR THE ZOMBIES!

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
