The Zutons: ‘V Festival is better than Glastonbury’

The band enjoy their set more than a trip to Worthy Farm...

THE ZUTONS performed two new tracks from their forthcoming second album at the V FESTIVAL.

The Scouse five-piece played ‘Hello Conscience’ and ‘Yesterdays Draws’, which singer Dave McCabe dedicated to everybody in the crowd with a hang over in the morning, during a 45 minute set.

Highlights included ‘Zuton Fever’, ‘Remember Me’, ‘Havana Gang Brawl’ and ‘You Will You Won’t’.

Before the band left the stage Dave said their performance V Festival was better than Glastonbury.

Speaking to NME.COM about the festival McCabe said: “It (V) does have a corporate reputation and it does have advertisements everywhere but at least it’s honest about it. But Glastonbury is just as corporate. I enjoyed playing Glastonbury but I always look forward to V cos we’ve done there the last few years and it’s always nice there. You always get treated well so it’s good. My mum’s coming down for this one as well .”

Speaking about the other bands on the bill he added: “It’s kind of Oasis’ mates day really. I know Noel Gallagher but I don’t really know any of the others. I’m looking forward to seeing The Streets this year and Oasis cos they’re both pretty good. I’ve seen The La’s a few times already so I’ll probably give them a miss. I don’t wanna spoil it by seeing ‘em again. I wanna see them bring a new record out so then we can go and watch them play a new record.”
