Goan Dogs/Zombies

The Beatles:

Woke up, fell out of bed

Dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup

And looking up I noticed I was late

Found my coat and grabbed my hat

Made the bus in seconds flat

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke

And somebody spoke, and I went into a dream.

The Goan Dogs:

I’m waking up like


and the day before

have coffee

and I’m out the door

suddenly I’m

I’m surrounded

by the walking dead

wish I was in bed

In 1967 the Beatles recorded ‘A Day in the Life’, a track from their Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album which is generally recognized as one of the most exquisite pieces of vinyl ever recorded.

‘Zombies’ is a song by the up and coming Bristol-based band the Goan Dogs.

As you can see for yourself, there is some commonality between these two beautiful pieces of music. Coffee is the one that immediately got my attention. I think I will have another cup now that we are mentioning it.

The other slice of common ground is the idea of getting caught up in the rat race of life and feeling like we are either caught up in a dream or living amongst zombies. 

Discussing the track, Goan Dogs tells us: “Now that the whole world is ill, we all do the same things day in, day out. Stuck on a loop. Remember the good old days? When we were free to wake up, eat food, drink, get bored, get anxious, sleep and repeat. Everyday. Without thinking. Like Zombies.”

The Bristol quintet Goan Dogs have their debut album in the works and with the recent release of their previous songs, ‘Anxiety’ and ‘God Loves a Trier’, the five-piece band announce their third offering ‘Zombies’. Working with illustrator and animator Client_Pleaser1987 who just so happens to be the band’s guitarist, the video is exploring life a world of fast-paced environments, work, commuting and being human puppets to overlord bosses. Goan Dogs’ eerie new project perfectly captures our robotic way of life through the world of animation.
