“The first bass line I learned was Joy Division's 'Disorder' in 1986,” says Mark Haemmerle (Starcrossed, Sleepy Hollow, the Canton Mudders, Kitty Plague). His electronic rock band Zombie Barbie also includes
Jovi Olivas (Jovi & the Issues), an actress and singer on stage and screen. "This is her first real band out of high school, and she incorporates her theatrical strengths to the live performances," says Haemmerle.
Zombie Barbie released its debut full-length Electrostatic Hallucinations, recorded at Jeff Forrest's Doubletime Studios in October 2014. Guests on the album include Stanze Touchie, Mishey Touchie, Nox Anger, Scott Hoover, Lena Jones, and Barry Lockwood.
"The photos included in the album represent the psychological and even physical world that we imagine Zombie Barbie's music as the backing track," says Olivas. "We saw ourselves as futuristic, with influential echoes from that past."
