The Zutons formed in Liverpool in 2001, taking their name from Captain Beefheart's Magic Band guitarist Zoot Horn Rollo. Dave McCabe had previously been in the band Tramp Attack. Both Pritchard and Payne were members of Edgar Jones' post Stairs band The Big Kids (with Sean's brother Howie Payne of The Stands). The band was originally a four-piece, before Payne's girlfriend Abi Harding began joining The Zutons on stage for a couple of songs mid-set, playing simple saxophonelines. The other band members liked the way her saxophone enhanced their sound and Harding became a full member, contributing vocals and sax. Deltasonic head Alan Wills was initially dubious about the musical talents of McCabe: "I’d heard other bands Dave had played in and I thought they were all rubbish". The Coral's James Skellywas persistent in trying to convince Wills of his friend's potential and the breakthrough finally came when the bedroom demos of the newly formed Zutons persuaded the Deltasonic head into...
The first record the band put out was the 3-track CD Devil's Deal, released in September 2002. The following spring they released Creepin' and a Crawlin', and then the download-only single "Haunts Me" in November 2003. The band's "Z" logo was changed early in 2004 to avoid confusion with the Zenithlogo. The Zutons' debut album, Who Killed...... The Zutons? was released in April 2004, and initially reached No. 13 in the UK album chart. However, after nearly a year later, it managed to move up to No. 9 in early 2005. The LP had a specially printed 3-D cover and came with Zutons 3-D viewing glasses, which many fans then wore to their concerts. Early copies of the album also included a bonus 4-track CD of alternative versions of their songs. The album was critically acclaimed and was a nominee for the 2004 Mercury Music Prize. The band themselves were nominated for the British Breakthrough Act award at the 2005 BRIT Awards. The album was later re-issued following the single "Don't Ever...
The new album Tired of Hanging Around was released on 17 April 2006 and reached No. 2 in the UK album charts. The first single from the album "Why Won't You Give Me Your Love?" and the second single "Valerie" both peaked at 9 in the charts, a fair achievement considering their highest place previously had been with the single "Don't Ever Think (Too Much)" at 15. The band toured the UK in May 2006 following the release of this album. They played at the Jersey Live Festival on 2 September 2006 before their second UK tour which began in November 2006. In October 2006, they performed at The Secret Policeman's Ball.

Rock and roll se prvi put pojavljuje kao zaseban stil u Americi tokom ranih 50ih godina, iako se dijelovi rock and rolla mogu čuti na RnB snimcima iz 1920ih. Rani rock and roll je uskladio dijelove bluesa, boogie woogiea, jazza i RnBa, te je također imao elemente Appalachianske folklorne muzike, crkvene muzike i country muzike. Ako idemo još dublje u historiju, neki smatraju da je rock and roll utemeljen na muzici Five Points susjedstva u New York Cityu tokom sredine 19. vijeka. Stanovnici Five Pointsa su prvi kombinirali afričku i evropsku muziku (naročito Irski jug). Izraz "Rocking" (Rockati) su prvo upotrjebili crkveni pjevači u Američkom jugu, i značilo je osjetiti vjersko ushićenje. U 1940im godinama, međutim, izraz je imao dvostruki značaj "plesati", podrazumijevajući seks. Jedan primjer ovoga je pjesma Roy Browna, "Good Rocking Tonight" (bosanski: "Dobro rokanje noćas"). Ovakve pjesme su bile popularne samo na radio stanicama posvećene RnBu, pa bijelci su vrlo rijetko čuli tu...
