Norman punks John Wayne’s Bitches formed less than two years ago. Isn’t it too soon for a comeback show? They’ve got a good reason.

Zombie Vs. Shark — Wunderkind/Dogs & Guns


Rock

Matt Carney
Norman’s Zombie vs. Shark embody a lot of the purest tenets of rock ’n’ roll, the foremost being the long-standing premise that loud, rude guitar music is one of the best, most fun ways of waggling a middle finger in the face of The Man.

My name is ____

We asked a bunch of local bands to tell us the origins of their names. Babies, zombies and Bible passages ensued.

Matt Carney
Zombie vs. Shark
“Our name refers to the underwater fight scene in the 1979 Italian zombie flick Zombi 2. . It was [singer] Jeremy [Gragg]’s idea, but we all thought it was funny and appropriate for reasons we’ve nev ertheless found hard to articulate. But I’ll try. I imagine ‘Zombie vs. Shark’ as some-thing a preadolescent boy play ing with action figures would dream up as the ultimate fight scenario. A zombie fighting a shark is willful in its arbitrariness and, as such, it expresses a kind of enthusiastically staged conflict you can also hear in our music.” —Robert Scafe, guitarist
