The Zutons

The Zutons might have officially got together in the spring of 2002, but the story truly starts with the release of their spectacular debut album Who Killed The Zutons? It's an eclectic work that will establish their unique identity for all to see. This new identity has reshaped the way The Zutons think and the way people will think about them. When they first formed back in 2002 (David McCabe was initially joined by Boyan Chowdhury on guitar, Sean Payne on drums and Russell Pritchard on bass, before they later added Abi Harding on saxophone), they suffered as a result of the media frenzy focused on a re-emergent Liverpool scene at that point dominated by The Coral. Their initial releases (their debut single - "Devil's Deal" - appeared in September 2002 and was followed the following May by "Creepin' An' A Crawlin") were very much the sound of a band finding their way, and despite the positive press response the band knew that they needed to dig deeper and forge a more distinctive sound based on their wildly diverse influences. To that end, the latter half of 2003 was spent in seclusion, writing and recording. As well as the songs that introduce this sound, however, there's another strand at work on the album that encompasses the Devo/Talking Heads angle. It's this total overhaul of the band that's so startling. Their take on the last 40 years of musical history is filtered through their own weirdly skewed outlook, which you will come to understand after listening to Who Killed The Zutons?In the end it all makes sense. The Zutons are the next modern soul band with a funky twist.
