Biography

Madrid, Spain (1979 – 1982)

For the English 1960’s Psychedelic rock band see The Zombies, and change your tags accordingly.

Zombies (sometimes styles Los Zombies) were a Spanish pop group in the early ’80s.

The group was founded in 1979 by Bernardo Bonezzi (Madrid, 1964-2012 ), who even before the age of fourteen had led a band called Morbus Acre and formed part of the seminal group of the Madrid scene Kaka de Luxe. The Zombies pooled influences of glam rock (Lou Reed, David Bowie, Brian Eno ) and new wave (Talking Heads, B- 52’s ). They signed to RCA , who released the group’s first single, the catchy “Groenland”, a song that still remains among the best-known Spanish pop songs of the 80, and is present in numerous compilations of music from the decade.

Encouraged by the success of the single, they recorded their first album, ‘Extraños juegos’, one of the most successful pop albums of the 80s. However, following the release of the second LP, ‘La muralla china’, Bonezzi decided to leave the group in 1982 to pursue other projects.

    Zombies is a valid artist, if you are looking for the English 60s band you should check The Zombies and change your ID3 tags accordingly.

    hehe Zombies biggest hit “Groenlandia” isn't even in the top tracks becouse people have mistagged The Zombies as "Zombies" so much. It's almost as if the spanish band has gotten eaten.
