Biography

Zom Philmapster and Zoms Frenchman have been living and making music together for the past 7 years. Zom, a retired encyclopedia salesman, met Zoms when he took a job as a pizza delivery driver. Obsessed with the similarity of their first names, the two became fast friends and soon discovered their common love for the musical arts. Moving in together was a logical choice and it allowed Zom and Zoms to dedicate themselves almost exclusively to music (and delivering pizza, which they now do freelance). The results of the move-in lie within the first Zom Zoms CD, “Lumboba’s Tube” (available at instinctorecords.com), which compiles the duo’s songs from 6 years of four-track tapes. The record deal with Instincto was arranged by Zom’s cousin, Philip Philmapster, who became their manager soon after receiving a Zom Zoms cassette by accident. Zom and Zoms moved to Tuba City, Arizona (a place they consider home) for a year following the release of “Lumboba’s Tube” to avoid the cult-following generated by the album. In December ‘03 however, Zom and Zoms moved back to Austin in response to Phil’s pleading. Philip has now joined the band for its live performances and plays synthesizers on its recordings. Zom Zoms have toured most of the USA (sorry North Dakota). They performed at the SXSW and CMJ music festivals in 2005 and 2006. They were banned from Canada for one year in 2005.
