Product Description

Sepultura ~ Who Killed The Zutons

Amazon.com

If merry Liverpudlians the Zutons really do have aspirations to marry Talking Heads with Sly and the Family Stone they fail miserably on Who Killed the Zutons?. There's a riot going on this debut album, but there's no bloodshed, just a mobbish custard pie confrontation between differing factions of pop history. Putting gimmickry to the fore, the Zutons start the album with their Monkees-styled theme tune "Zuton Fever", which could well be a cartoon voodoo version of Echo and the Bunnymen. Then the fun begins: obvious touchstones are the British invasion R&B of the Spencer Davis Group and the Animals (stompers such "Long Time Coming" and "You Will You Won't" are convincing vintage soul fakes) coupled with that awkward evolutionary blip in the 60s when white soulboys went psychedelic (see Zoot Money and Dantalion's Chariot). Add on some ghoulish surf guitars and creepy stuff about zombies, food poisoning and tropical diseases to keep fans of the Cramps happy and then append with the cheapest toy sax in rock since Laura Logic's punk parpings with X-Ray Spex. It works. Even so, the melancholic moments are the best, among them the Kinks-tinted, rainy-day ennui of "Not a Lot to Do" and the cruel-to-be-kind kiss-off of "Confusion" ("from day one, I led you on"). --Kevin Maidment

I listen, if I like it I buy it.
Ellie K
I imagine that if the Beatles were still around making music, it might sound something like the Zutons.
M. Ellis
First off, this is a really good album...quirky, ambitious, catchy and a whole lot of fun.

First of all, just to let you know, I am 50 years old. I have been buying new music, cutting-edge music, non-main stream music for years. OK, for decades. My kids, and their friends are in shock when I put one of "my" CD's into the player, they can't believe I am so old, but so up-to-date. Listening to XM Radio helps and it was there that I caught "Pressure Point". It caught my ear because I vaguely remembered it from a TV commercial. The song, in its entirety, made me want to pull over my car and get out and dance with joy. I hadn't bought a CD in months. Now, out of the muck of MTV music copycat sameness, came the freshest, new song I had heard for over a year. I had to buy the CD and I listen to it at least 5 times a week, and I never get tired of it. Here's my rule of thumb for what I like : if I can't describe it or categorize it when I'm telling someone about it, I like it! And that's the Zutons. It seems Liverpool is going through a rock renaissance and out of that, the Zutons were born! I've read other reviews comparing them to Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, the Coral etc. etc. No. Sorry. You can't compare them. Don't waste your time trying. As the Zutons sing "don't ever think too much". The lyrics are quirky, odd. The music, especially the saxophone is raw and makes you want to sing along. There seems to be a fascination with physical condition, with references to "bones, brains, flaky skin". Their writer would make for an interesting interview. Anyway, take it from this old man - buy "Who Killed?...the Zutons" It's addictive. When they finally come across the pond and come to my area, I may be the oldest fan in the crowd. And I'll be loving every minute of it.

The answer is not many people. The Zutons, it must be said, are a band in their infancy, still finding their sound - but it also must be said, they are astounding. There isn't a song on their debut album that I didn't love; every single one is catchy or attractive in one way or another. It's really hard, as many have said, to label their music - they seem to combine Rock, Soul, Funk, Ska & Country types of music.

Let's go in-depth, as this seems more logical.

1.) Zuton Fever - Lovely intro, displaying their heavier rock tendancies, with a thrashing riff White Stripes-esque. The vocalist, Dave McCabe, is as always fantastic - he has a bit of Axl Rose in him for sure. 9/10

2.) Pressure Point - Again another rock anthem, very good and a lovely intro. It has to be said their soul/motown twists appear when all the band chip on on vocals to support Dave as a chorus, and it works fantastically. 8.5/10

3.) You Will You Won't - One of my favourites, definately; a sing-along funk-rock song, along the lines of Red Hot Chili Peppers... but then, not so. It's very hard to label them. I suggest listening to this as you'll probably like it instantly; some of the others take a few hearings before they really take off in your head.(or maybe that's just me)10/10

4.) Confusion - A quiet folk-rock song, could even be compared to Simon & Garfunkel? It's getting even harder to compare them as I go along. This is a good song for those who prefer quiet tracks. 8/10

5.) Havana Gang Brawl - This is possibly the hardest to label; let's just say it's very good, lots of nice guitars on it. 8.5/10

[I'll skip track 6, which is Interlude, a 30-second peice with violins and an acoustic guitar, and skip to the best track]

Last night, I went to go see Keane in concert. They are an awesome band! The Red Walls and The Zutons opened for Keane. The Red Walls were okay, but The Zutons played with intensity and had some of the most creative music I've heard in a while. Although I had gone to see Keane, I would have been satisfied just listening to the 35-40 minutes of the Zutons.

This band incorporates jazz, blues and a sixties psychedelic feel to their music. They even have an awesome sax player. I bought their CD immediately at the concert.

You won't go wrong buying their music. They're fun, creative and I promise - you will be singing along to each catchy song almost immediately! I highly recommend this band and their debut CD!!!!!!!!

I just saw these guys (and gal) on Aug. 2nd, 04. Man, what a live set. This is one of the few bands that is hard to place. They definately carry a vintage vibe. There are some classic rock sounds, there are some nice folky songs (but not traditional), there is a bit of Mo-town, a bit of ska and a splash of rockabilly! Now blend it up, shake it, and play it loud. If you are not infected by the songs, check your head, eh?

This is the record that I hoped the band the Coral would follow up with, but they didn't.

Buy this and enjoy introducing them to you buddies.

ps...after the show (they opened or co/headlined) for Cosmic Rough riders) we were able to meet them and hang out for a while. Great people, great fun. Enjoy!

So, who did kill the Zutons? I don't know because I think they're alive...and well, I might add. Thanks for asking. A lot of people are trying to compare The Zutons to other English bands such as Franz Ferdinand or such American bands as The Killers or Maroon 5, but I find them to be another animal entirely. When people attempt to categorize a band yet are unable to do so, it's a credit to their originality, not a lack thereof.

Starting off with the oh-so-catchy track Zuton Fever, we are immediately immersed in the quirky and inimitable sound of The Zutons. From there, there exist many standout tracks that I thoroughly enjoy including the three videos that are included on the enhanced CD for your computer-viewing pleasure: the alt radio hit Pressure Point, the punkish You Will You Won't, and the fun quasi-country track Remember Me. Don't try to classify The Zutons, just enjoy them. Nice CD.
