The Zombies wake up Regent Theatre

ARLINGTON — They weren’t like other British invasion acts. The Zombies were more mysterious than Herman’s Hermits and more ethereal than the Who. They were the band that lamented the lost girl of “She’s Not There,” and lasciviously asked, “Who’s Your Daddy?” on their hit “Time of the Season.” The Zombies even showed up in an Otto Preminger thriller.

The band only squeaked out three hits and two albums before its premature breakup 45 years ago. One of those albums, “Odessey and Oracle” (the title was misspelled by the cover artist), has climbed out of dusty obscurity and is now placed on the same pop pedestal as the Beach Boys’s “Pet Sounds” or “The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society.”
