Product Description

The Zutons make their long awaited return with the release of 'Tired of Hanging Around', the follow-up to 'Who Killed the Zutons', which spawned five Top 40 singles. Produced by Stephen Street (Kaiser Chiefs/ the Smiths), 'Tired of Hanging Around' finds the cosmic scousers developing their schizophrenic, 60s influenced beat-pop into a masterstroke of indie-eccentricity, blending all the quirky flourishes that accentuated their debut with a tighter and more concentrated agenda. Deltasonic. 2006.

Amazon.com

The surprise success story of the "Scousadelic" Liverpool scene, on Tired of Hangin' Around the Zutons trump their debut with an assured, confident collection of songs that accentuate their skill for vintage R&B, white-man soul, and some of the best rowdy sax since the Specials strode the earth. Perhaps in retrospect it's easy to see why this band have struck the public nerve in the way the Coral and the Bandits never quite could. No spooked, surrealist pirate swashbucklers here--the Zutons' songs are grounded in the here and now, numbers like "It's the Little Things We Do", the sound of frontman Dave McCabe weaving an unsteady path from barstool to barstool with dwindling pay-cheque clutched in fist, or "Valerie"--a message to an ex-lover reminiscent of the tattered majesty of the Faces in their garrulous heyday. Much improved is Abi Harding's saxophone work, now capable of sensitive, jazzy undertones ("You've Got a Friend in Me") or sudden bursts of nutty, bandy-legged strut, and McCabe's soulful vocal is neatly bolstered by full-band backing vocals that add an enjoyably cabaret sense of drama to even the twitchiest blast of skiffle-punk. The sound of a band coming on in leaps and bounds. --Louis Pattison

It's a shame America hasn't got on to the Zutons enough to give them a proper release in the United States. Among the new Britrock revival that started with Franz Ferdinand, followed through with the Kaiser Chiefs and ended (for now) with the Arctic Monkeys, The Zutons are one of the most adventurous and compelling. Slightly reminiscent of early Talking Heads albums the Zutons bring us an elective R&R that is both exciting and daring. The Zutons seem to excel in surprising hooks and original lyrics. There debut was a joyous affair full of promise. There follow up delivers on that promise. Where the debut album was at times too elective and disorientating Tired of Hanging around is a more cohesive effort. The lyrics on the album sound more personal and for a part disbanded the at times absurdist more arty creations of Who Killed the Zutons. This makes their sophomore effort more compelling. The music is exciting as always. Yet the band seems more aware of their strengths. Where on the debut album the Zutons were clearly still looking for their sound, on Tired of Hanging around they appear to have it locked down. The end result is an unusual but Funky R&R record.

Zutons are a UK quintet from Liverpool, with a rough psychedelic rock/R&B/ska/folk sound, akin to fellow Brits, The Coral, with a small dash of The Smiths. `Tired of hanging around' is their sophomore disc, and it's already topped the UK albums chart.

In Smiths-like mode, lyric wise is the rather dark but upbeat `Oh Stacey (look what you've done)' with an accompanying morbid but hilarious video.

`Secrets' is a swinging ska tinged song (great horns) and an insistent chorus. Retro rocker `It's the little things we do' has a great guitar riff.

Title track `Tired of hanging around' features great story telling, set to a Paul Weller sound, with great harmonies, something to be found throughout the album. Other great upbeat songs are the jangly, sunny `Valerie', and the clap along `Hello conscience'.

Slowing things down are `Someone's watching over me'which starts off like a lullaby before building up to a nice guitar ballad with dreamy harmonies. `You've got a friend' is a catchy skiffle, and `I know I'll never leave' is an airy ballad with a raw vocal delivery and soothing harmonies.

I think they'll be hanging around for a long time to come...

I started listening to The Zutons back in 2004 when a friend recommended them to me. It wasn't until I saw them live a few months later that I really started to appreciate The Zutons' sound.

An upbeat and energetic band with quirky lyrics and insane music really make for an interesting album. If you were turned off by their last album (like I said, I had to see them live before I really got into them), never fear. This is so much different than their debut, and in some ways even better.

When one listens to this they have to realise that Dave McCabe is highly autobiographical when he writes his music. I had to sit and wonder what the hell happened to Dave between the two albums? This one is far more dark and sometimes sad. WEll, the lyrics are. But the music? Simply PERFECT. Abi has really come a long way with her vocals. Her sax is still awesome and Russell and Boyan use some pretty cool "classic Rock type" riffs and rhythms. Sean still uses his cowbell in delightful intervals ("I need more cowbell!") and sets the pace in a furious flurry of beats. Dave's voice and guitar are still absolutely perfect. (Yes he's still singing about dreams, or nightmares, whatever your take is.)

I cannot get enough of this album. Their stateside tour is going to be so teriffic and I cannot wait.

And yes, 'Hello Conscience' IS on the album, but a bit different than the version was on the WAR CHILD compilation.

The Zutons made a real big impression the first time around. They toured with Muse (?) in the USA and were on a TV commercial with that song "Pressure Point." They sort of fit in that goofy pirate Liverpool sound. The second album sounds far more interesting. I feel like the real band is coming out. Songs like "It's The Little Thing We Do" and "Valerie" sound more representative of this great band. "Someone Watching Over Me" is great ballad. You don't hear these songs anymore. I prefer soul singers to English ballads anyway. This is music built around a vocal styling. But the music is again totally interwoven in the Zuton fabric. I think record has a wider appeal than their first outing. I look forward to the new live shows. "Why Don't You Give Me Your Love" is a cool song. This band is young. Expect many good things from them down the road. They have played with the biggest bands in the world. It's time for people to take notice of The Zutons.
