Zombie Zombie


JOHN CARPENTER: “I know this French band that is pretty good. They’re called Zombie Zombie. (They’re a techno band I think)”.

booking by Pascal Tippex

September 2017:

NEW ALBUM, LIVITY (Versatile Records)


NEW VIDEO for Livity:




Zombie Zombie is a French trio made up of Etienne Jaumet on analog synths, Cosmic Neman (who also plays with the band Herman Dune) and Doc Shonberg, both on drums and percussion.
Zombie Zombie go back to 2005 and their first album “A Land for Renegades”. In 2010 their album “Zombie Zombie plays John Carpenter”, which saw them solely tackle the works of film score composer John Carpenter in new and different ways was a big succes. This time round they’ve taken a different tack heading into the studio with Joakim on production duties for their third album proper, “Rituels d’un Nouveau Monde” (‘Rituals Of A New World’).

The crazyest news: In October 2103, Lady Gaga sampled the band and their cover of Sun-Ra’s “Rocket #9″ in her new song ‘Venus”! Read more about it on SPIN.

“Best French Band” Vice

Ghoulish Parisian psych-nouveau duo, coming to you from your darkest nightmares. Expect to wake up screaming, but for joy“. (NME)“Festival highlights include Zombie Zombie, a Parisian pairing who impress with their vintage synth-based krautrock rythms and high-energy hommage to the scores of low-budget horror films. John Carpenter-inspired synthesizer soundscapes mix with the no wave electroclash of Suicide.” The Independant

In June 2016, at festival Villette Sonique in Paris, Zombie Zombie played with their hero Sonic Boom and they even played a song by Spacemen 3:
