The Zutons are a British band whose music has proved difficult to categorise, and has been described as "psychedelic cartoon punk" with a unique blend of rock pop, jazz, funk, and general eclecticism. The band consists of: David McCabe (lead vocals, guitar), Abi Harding (saxophone, vocals), Russell Pritchard (bass) and Sean Payne (drums). Guitarist Boyan Chowdhury left in 2007. The band has three albums out as of 2008 - 2004's "Who Killed the Zutons?", 2006's "Tired of Hanging Around" and 2008's "You Can Do Anything"
The band formed in Liverpool, England in 2001, taking their name from Magic Band guitarist Bill Harkleroad, better known as Zoot Horn (or "Zuton") Rollo. With all the members being Liverpudlian, this led to comparisions with The Coral, especially as both bands were signed to the same record label - Deltasonic - and had the same producer - Ian Broudie. Their debut album - Who Killed the Zutons? - was released on October 18th 2004, and reached number 9 in the UK album chart.

The Zutons is an English indie rock band from Liverpool. They were formed in 2001 but did not release their first album, Who Killed...... The Zutons?, until May 2004. They achieved their biggest hits with "Why Won't You Give Me Your Love?" and "Valerie", both taken from their second studio album Tired of Hanging Around in 2006. Both singles reached #9 in the UK Singles Chart. "Valerie" was later covered by British musical artist Mark Ronson (with the lead vocals provided by singer Amy Winehouse), who took the song to #2 in 2007.
