Forgotten DIY Heroes II - Combo Zombo
It's 1981, and there just aren't enough songs about zombies. Step up, Combo Zombo; your time is at hand. C.J. Nukem, Mr Pie, Tiger and (erm) Chuck. Mr Pie, whose real name I believe is Adrian, would go on to win an Emmy, play with the Waterboys and drum on the Mike Flowers' Pops cover of Wonderwall. No, really. The band reformed this weekend for one gig and showed that music really can still be weird and wonderful, and strangely touching - even when the songs are about zombie girlfriends.
