Modern reunions of old bands from the 1960s can be a very mixed bag. For every group like Question Mark & the Mysterians, who occasionally perform with original members and sound just as powerful as they did in their heyday, there are dozens of other bands who sound embarrassingly creaky as they chase ancient memories. The Zombies, as led by Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, are, mercifully, an exception to the latter trend. Of course, they have played together for many years now, moving on from their initial pop success with The Zombies to frequent collaborations even after Rod held his head high with classic rockers Argent. The “new” Zombies actually have been back together for more than a decade, deftly mixing new songs with vintage favorites such as “Time of the Season” and “She's Not There.”
