He's an absolute, absolute genius and makes a mockery of all the awful folk that's about today.
THAT IS ALL.
sorry, no , just vomiting in my hand there.
Talk about tartan shortbread tin folk.
Second off, you're wrong. Bet you listened to The Whole of the Moon at a wedding and thought it was shit.
Sorry he's not wearing a skinny tie and making electro clash post punk.
Mike scott. From Edinburgh. In Scotland. Making H-irish music?
He is the one man equivalent of the levellers.
That's great you like him, sorry you don't like skinny tie electro clash post punk - it's the new buzz, but then again it's no blazer and skinny jeans lo fi afro hop.
but he's just miles ahead of them in talent or meaning. I guess it depends with you like wishy washy spirituality or not. And I do. But also, I dunno why I like him so much as I pretty much dislike folk music.
Maybe it's his excellent hair.
they don't actually use the song, they change a few notes but it's still unmistakeably the song...do they get away with that?
It's on The Waterboys' website.
or maybe i'm thinking of a different ad. hold on, i'll be back
Fisherman's Blues, I think it's called.
Well that's an immensely good tune. Thing is, Scott is Scottish but a lot of his tunes are about Britain, or Ireland in particular, or general spirituality. Stupid tourist board.
the waterboys are great
That would be an massive step down. Like going from The Wire to The Bill in one swoop.
