The Zutons’ Dave McCabe Returns With Electronica Project

Former front man of The Zutons and sonic screwdriver Dave McCabe returns to the limelight this week with his new project Dave McCabe & The Ramifications.

‘Time & Place’, taken from his as yet unannounced debut album, was recorded during the album sessions at Ape Studios on the Wirral with production team Viktor Voltage and Mr Chop. Having recently signed with 1965 Records, the album will be released later this year.

Talking about the new track McCabe says, “I wanted to do something that wasn’t a guitar record. There’s loads of music I’ve always been into, things like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Human League, more electronic stuff that was totally different to what we did in the Zutons. I wanted to do my own version of a Grand Theft Auto soundtrack basically.”

Inspired by McCabe’s love of DC Comics and the writings of Philip K Dick the forthcoming album tells a story, McCabe says “I started writing a bunch of songs that all worked around this theme, this story. It’s about a fella who falls in love with a robot, but after a while he realizes that he actually needs some real human contact. Its scary man, you look at the way technology is going then you look at the way humanity is going and it’s like technology is going to start edging ahead of us and be more advanced than we are as humans.”
