The Zutons: Tired Of Hanging Around

Why does everyone like The Zutons? Bands who dress up as zombies and summon up strange reference points like Dr John, Devo and Area Code 615 should not, after all, be popular. At all. Maybe the not knowing has got David McCabe feeling antsy–...

The Zutons: Why Won’t You Give Me Your Love?

It’s funny how it tears you apart. It hits you in the groin, and then the heart and the head follow a bit later. Yes, this is the Zutes in altogether more raunchy and libidinous shapes than we’re used to, stomping along as they essay a tale...

The Zutons : Oxford Zodiac

Even if you’ve spent years in la-la land, la’, you can’t have failed to notice that being in a Liverpudlian band is a not a privilege, it’s a predicament. First there's a huge bunch of glib naysayers writing you off as Coral copyists and...
