Look out for The Zombies! In this clip, the group performs "She's Not There" on Hullabaloo (1965). Rather than the Go Go dancers of old, this next wave of the British Invasion included a minimal set- dressed with models draped over Victorian furniture and classic antiques! Apart from the ironic glance from the keyboardist, the band plays it pretty straight. The visuals point to the kind of 1960s isolation aesthetics seen in Antonioni's films (Blow Up/1966 and L'avventura/1960).
