The Zombies with Hollis Brown

New York band Hollis Brown recently sat down with the legendary English group The Zombies for a Talkhouse Music Podcast recorded live at Samsung 837. Over the course of the conversation, Hollis Brown’s Mike Montali and Jonathan Bonilla drew out a history of The Zombies’ singular career as told by key members Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone. Get ready for tales of meeting The Rolling Stones in their hardcore R&B purist days, how the Zombies tried to meet Elvis while in Memphis but hung out with his dad instead, and how it feels to have their new record, Still Got That Hunger, in six Billboard charts after not touching those hallowed heights for 50 years. You’ll also hear about Hollis Brown singer Montali writing Aaron Neville’s new song “I Wanna Love You”, and how guitarist Bonilla got a little too drunk one night in Memphis… and ended up with an Elvis tattoo.
