    This episodes special guest is Dave McCabe of The ZutonsI met with Dave and we had a wonderful chat, talking about growing up, school, clubbing, great records and so much moreHope you enjoy this chat and if you do please feel free to support the podcast here.‘The Big Decider’ (out 26th April) will be their first album together for 16 years and they’ve produced it with Nile Rodgers at Abbey Road Studios, alongside their original producer Ian Broudie. The album’s lead single ‘Creeping On The Dancefloor’ is already playlisted on BBC Radio 2 and Absolute, and picking up spins across 6 Music and Radio X. They’re currently out on a run of intimate UK shows before a much bigger UK headline tour kicks off in April.  It has been some journey for the ‘Valerie’ hit-makers in the time since their last album, 2008’s ‘You Can Do Anything’. ‘The Big Decider’ rears its head with the band having been through an awful lot together, and individually. Family tragedies, lives lost and created, reality checks, fallouts, make-ups, breakdowns – as well as lead singer Dave McCabe’s experiences of rehabilitation – have all played their part in making ‘The Big Decider’ what it is. For them it became the sound of water passing under the bridge, and a love for making music together rediscovered. Dave is pretty open in saying that this was the first time he’d actually been excited to record an album. https://www.buymeacoffee.com/stuwhiffenorhttps://supporter.acast.com/offthebeatandtrack orwww.patreon.com/offthebeatandtrackPlease also subscribe and follow the podcast on the social media links belowOff The Beat & Trackwww.offthebeatandtrackpodcast.comhttps://twitter.com/beatandtrackpodhttps://www.facebook.com/offthebeatandtrackpodcast/
