The Zutons

22/4 @Chalk 6pm

This indie rock band from Liverpool formed in 2001 but did not release their debut album, Who Killed…..The Zutons?, until three years later. Taking their name from the guitarist in Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band, they signed to Deltasonic after The Coral’s James Skelly persuaded the label boss Alan Wills of their potential and initially battled comparisons to their fellow Scousers. The debut album was well received by the press and earned a nomination for the 2004 Mercury Music Prize. The following year they were nominated for British Breakthrough Act at the BRIT Awards. After releasing their third studio album, You Can Do Anything, in 2008, the band quietly disbanded. In 2018 the band reformed for a tour which celebrated the 15th anniversary of their debut album. Their latest album, The Big Decider, is produced by Chic production genius, Nile Rogers, and they take to the road to promote it.
