Zombina & The Skeletones âThat Doll Just Tried To Kill Meâ EP (Ectoplastic)
Released 31st October 20122
The brand new five track EP from Liverpoolâs schlock rock horror punks released to mark Halloween will definitely not keep the spooks away…for those unfamiliar with Zombina & The Skeletones this download only EP is crammed with typical tongue in cheek camp it up slasher horror set to a genre mashing punk/surf/rockabilly and lounge beat â the musical equivalent of Frankensteinâs monster and hey; we all love that beastie!!
âGinfernoâ comes across as The Adams Family pursued by Dick Dale down Interstate 65, hell for leather guitar licks, deep deep sax powered by Chevy fuelled beats before Mistress Zombina interrupts proceedings with a vocal burst of the Belle Stars âThe Clapping Songâ you know…the âMy mama told me if I was goody/That she would buy me a rubber dollyâ except the dolly in Zombinaâs world is truly demonic and attempts to bite Mistress Zombina over a rollicking psychobilly beat; things turn decidedly darker for âBorn Without A Headâ a 90second speed punk burst. Frankie himself gets a mention during âI Was A Teenage Frankensteinâ â a ludicrously brief garage rocker complete with Farfisa keys and rich brass as Zombina howls lupine style…before Dr. Frankenstein exits his lab, dons his smoking jacket, sips Chianti from a goblet crafted from the skull of a sacrificed virgin and relaxes to a lounge version of ‘Ginferno’ – there just isn’t enough lounge music these days, why save it all for Halloween?
Zombina & The Skeletones totally encapsulates Halloween, dark humour laced with salacious titbits; their songs like Frankenstein himself – an unorthodox scientific experiment and this alchemy has just created gold!!
