Phew, it's getting pretty crazy in Zutons's world. Hit singles, a major album, festival acclaim, a Mercury Music Prize nomination and now - the ultimate - their new single Confusion featured in a Peugeot telly ad. "I'm exhausted," says Sean Payne in wonder about a year that's seen them leap from nonentities to headliners. "Not that I'm complaining! I wouldn't have changed any of it..." ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— by Colin Irwin NEED A HELPING HAND? TRY TELETEXT LIFESTYLE ALERTS-p108 Reviews Charts GameCentral TV Guide

What's this? ANOTHER single released off the already big-selling Who Killed The Zutons album? Taking the rise a bit, isn't it? "But it's a nice song," argues Sean Payne. "It's a bit... different. Well, all the songs are different really, but it's a quiet one. There aren't many quiet ones." "I think it stands up as a single and may appeal to people who didn't like Pressure Point. We're happy with it." ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— Beat the bamboozler 140 NORTON LOANS SEE p615 0800 929 100 Reviews Charts GameCentral TV Guide

The new Zutons single is being used to flog Peugeot cars on telly. Controversial? Sean: "As far as we know Peugeot have never harmed anyone, so we didn't see any reason not to let them use it on the ad. It's just another way of getting people to know your music." Some people think it's a bit naff to be on a TV ad. "It can cheapen a song but that can happen to anything you hear a lot. And they only use a bit of it." ——————————————————————————————————3/6—— We're Ace for pop 380 Get your daily Marjorie Orr horoscope sent to your mobile See p108 Reviews Charts GameCentral TV Guide

Sean Payne still can't quite believe the run of success the Zutons have had this year. "It took us all by surprise. You obviously hope it will happen and we didn't put out the album until we were sure it was the best we possibly could do, so we felt if people didn't like us now, they never would." At what point did they know it was happening? "At festivals in the summer and then the Mercury thing happened." ——————————————————————————————————4/6—— Total entertainment 300 Had an accident?

After such a successful first album the pressure's on for the Zutons to come up with something special for the second. "It is a pressure," says Sean Payne, "but then so was the first. Then we had to make a good enough album that we'd get to make another one. A lot of bands never make a second album. "We'll be writing new material in January. We did about 50 songs for the first one, but we want to be completely fresh." ——————————————————————————————————6/6—— The games people play 375 Get your daily Marjorie Orr horoscope sent to your mobile See p108 Reviews Charts GameCentral TV Guide
