Taking John Carpenter Out to the Dance Floor

French disco duo Zombie Zombie tackle John Carpenter’s scores.

French disco duo Zombie Zombie have gone conceptual with their new album - they’re doing all John Carpenter covers. As you must surely know, Carpenter tends to do his own scores, and they’re often rudimentary but effective synth pieces - which kind of make them perfect for transformation into dance music.

Zombie Zombie Plays John Carpenter isn’t quite Fantomas’ The Director’s Cut (still my favorite “weird theme covers” project of all time), but it has its moments. They’re on tour in Europe right now; check out their MySpace page for more.
