Who Killed the Zutons?

Well, look, it wasn’t me, OK? And I do hope rumours of their death are exagerated, as it would be a shame if they aren’t around to make another album.

What am I talking about? The Zutons, a band about whom I know approximately nothing, but who make a rather pleasing sound. Their debut album, Who Killed the Zutons has been out for a couple of weeks now. I’d seem some positive reviews, and bought it pretty much on impluse in Tesco’s yesterday. And then had one of those OOOHHHHHHHHHH!! moments. As in “so that’s who it is!” I seem to get this a lot. I hear tracks on the radio, like them, but manage not to register who’s responsible for them[1].

This CD includes several familiar songs including Pressure Point and Havana Gang Brawl. It’s good fun stuff, not sure how to categorise it, really. Pleasantly silly. Reminds me of something, but I can’t quite remember what. Worth a listen.

[1] More of this when I get hold of Graham Coxon’s new one….
