News from the Astro Zombies: Departure / Arrival
The great bass player Thomas Frenchy leaves the Astro Zombies next spring. He decides to move to the US and takes his chance in the land of dreams where the sun always shines: California .
So now the ASTRO ZOMBIES proudly present their new member: he's Tall and smily, a lost 'Texan' living in UK , is he Long? I don't know.... Ladies and gentlemen applause: Mister Mark Carew!

Mark Carew is the soul of the famous psychobilly band Long Tall Texans and also playing with the ska band the Hotknives.
He's fantastic, he’s marvellous, he's brilliant and smart, he's a genius and handsome man but... he is English! (Nobody’s perfect!)
Anyway the ASTRO ZOMBIES are glad to welcome Mark and are coming back now for new...' Adventures'.
In March 2009 a new album of the Astro Zombies called ' Convince or Confuse' will be released by Drunkabilly records.
Established in 1996 and with tours on half the planet under their belt, the Astro Zombies need no introduction to rock & roll aficionados worldwide. After the 2007 release of the much acclaimed live platter 'Burgundy Livers', the three-headed undead unleash their fourth studio album. 'Convince Or Confuse' delivers all the motley goods these international rockers thrive on, from old-time psychobilly to surfin' sleaze, greasy instrumentals, punked-up gems and a whole lot more sonic glory.
Among those standout tracks is 'Hey Gyp', featuring magnificent vocals of Sarah Blackwood from punkabilly prowlers The Creepshow, while a lethal rendition of the classic 'Bang Bang' will send Cher and Nancy Sinatra on a coffin shopping spree. 'Margarita' even puts a psycho spin on Spanish folk styles, enriched by gloomy string arrangements and accelerating fiddles. 'Convince Or Confuse' also marks the last Astro Zombies recordings of standup bass player extraordinaire Thomas Frenchy. His successor is none other than Long Tall Texans main man Mark Carew. More solid proof the Astro Zombies keep going from strength to strength.
