Glasgow Music and Film Festival presents

Zombie Zombie perform Battleship Potemkin

Wed 23 Feb 2011 | 7.30pm doors | £9 + bf

Parisian duo Zombie Zombie, self-confessed analogue freaks, kraut-disco devotees and “crazy scientist musical project”, are also renowned horror movie obsessives. Inspired by the legendary film soundtracks of Goblin, last year’s Glasgow Music and Film Festival saw the Parisian duo perform music from the films of John Carpenter, expertly raising and lowering the pulse of the crowd to recreate the thrilling emotional crescendos of the classic horror movie through their nouveau psych music. They went on to tour the show all around Europe, as well as releasing a CD of Carpenter’s music produced by Joakim.

For this special event, the band will recreate the live score of Sergie Eisenstein’s seminal 1925 film Battleship Potemkin – possibly one of the most revolutionary propaganda films of all time.

N.B. Programme may be subject to change due to film rights clearance.


Now in its third year, the Glasgow Music and Film Festival is lovingly co-curated by film buffs and music geeks at the Glasgow Film Theatre and the Arches. A series of specially commissioned, one-off events combining audio and visuals, the results range from the entertaining, to the inspirational, to the downright weird.

This show is 14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+)
