The Zombies first achieved international acclaim in 1964 with the British Invasion hit "She's Not There." They disbanded in early 1968, just prior to the release of their second album, "The Odessey and the Oracle." Little did they know that "The Odessey and the Oracle" would spawn a huge hit, "Time of the Season" and go on to be recognized as one of the greatest albums ever recorded. It was ranked #100 on Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 albums of all time list.

The Zombies have been a huge influence on countless psychedelic and indie bands of the last 3 decades including, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Olivia Tremor Control, Tame Impala, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Belle and Sebastian, Beach House, and many more.
