In spite of limited success in their home country, the Zombies had a magic about them which ensures that they are still remembered.
The group was formed by Argent, Grundy and Atkinson at St. Albans School in 1963, and White and Blunstone joined a little later. They received a boost when they won a beat group competition held by the London Evening News, which led to them signing a recording contract with Decca Records. The press pounced on the fact that between them they boasted fifty "O" Levels, and some ludicrous publicity resulted, but their first record "She's Not There", written by Rod Argent, made No. 12. It did even better in the United States where it reached No. 2.
In early '65 they released another classic of the era, "Tell Her No". Although it didn't make the top 40 at home, the song was their second American top 10 success.
There was an undeniable subtlety and restraint about their music which seemed partly to confirm this early image as "the thinking man's pop group". Possibly this tag told against them, but whatever the reason they never quite hit the heights in Britain that their talent deserved.. In the USA they fared better, and so they concentrated on working there.
They split in 1967. The Zombies biggest success in America came in 1969, two years after they had broken up, when "Time Of The Season" became a posthumous hit for them.
