Strange Boat: Mike Scott and The Waterboys

by Ian Abrahams
£12.99   paperback  SAF Publishing Ltd (2007)

Strange Boat: Mike Scott and The Waterboys by Ian Abrahams "To me there's no difference between Mike Scott and The Waterboys; they both mean the same thing. They mean myself and whoever are my current travelling musical companions." Mike Scott
 
Strange Boat examines the literary references, the striving for personal growth, and the immersion in differing locations and cultures that have informed Mike Scott's songwriting.
 
After their initial success, exemplified by the hit single "The Whole of the Moon", The Waterboys relocated to Ireland where they became synonymous with contemporary Irish folk music, and recorded Fisherman's Blues, a classic to sit alongside Van Morrison's Astral Weeks.
 
Perfectionist, once minstrel of the craic, now sometime residence of a Scottish highland retreat, Mike Scott's life has been a tale of continual musical exploration entwined with an ever-evolving spirituality.
