Band BiographyEdit

The Zutons formed in Liverpool in 2001, taking their name from The Magic Band guitarist Bill Harkleroad, better known as Zoot Horn (or "Zuton") Rollo. Originally a four-piece, Sean's girlfriend Abi began joining The Zutons on stage for a couple of songs mid-set, playing simple saxophone lines. She was very popular with the crowd, and the other band members liked the way the saxophone enhanced their sound. Abi soon became a full member, contributing vocals and sax.

At first the band had to battle comparisons to The Coral. Both bands were Merseyside bands prominent members of the Liverpool music scene, on the same record label, and they shared the same producer, Ian Broudie. The band's music has proved difficult to categorize, being described as "psychedelic cartoon punk". McCabe, who is also the lead songwriter, includes amongst his influences Talking Heads, Devo, Sly & The Family Stone, Dexy's Midnight Runners and Madness.
