Personalities | The Zutons | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 2001–present)

Liverpool’s Zutons – Dave McCabe (vocals), Boyan Chowdhury (guitar), Abi Harding (saxophone), Sean Payne (drums) and Russell Pritchard (bass) – found their inital press coverage through a songwriting style indebted to their city’s 1960s musical ancestry. McCabe possesses a vocal snarl and lyrical deftness that has seen both the band’s albums – Who Killed ... The Zutons? (2004) and Tired Of Hanging Around (2006) – chart highly, and outlive idle comparisons to fellow Liverpudlian acts such as The Coral.
