Michael Scott (born 14 December 1958) is a Scottish singer, songwriter and musician. He is the founding member, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of rock band The Waterboys. He has also produced two solo albums, Bring 'em All In and Still Burning. Scott is a vocalist, guitarist and pianist, and has played a large range of other instruments, including the bouzouki, drums, and Hammond organ on his albums.
Combining all of the group's British chart singles except "And a Bang on the Ear" as well as live tracks, B-sides not previously on an album, and even one previously unreleased studio track, "Higher in Time," from 1991, it is in effect a "the best and the rest" selection of the work of Mike Scott from 1982 to 1997
Mike Scott will be touring The Waterboys’ new album later this year. IN THE mid-1980s, when The Waterboys supported U2 at Wembley Arena in London, Mike Scott’s band seemed all set for the same global status as Bono and Co. The following year, when their third album, This Is The Sea, and classic single, The Whole Of The Moon, catapulted the band’s big music into the Top 10 such success seemed virtually assured. But it was never, says Waterboy-in-chief Mike Scott, what he wanted.
Mike and Steve talk to John about Fisherman's Blues, the fourth Waterboys album from 1988. Fisherman's Blues" - Twenty five years after it was first released, Mike Scott and Steve Wickham return to the album that marked a distinct change in the sound of their group The Waterboys. Featuring the ominous 'We Will Not Be Lovers', the otherworldly 'When Ye Go Away' and the much covered title track (including Hip Hop, torch song and Japanese punk versions), "Fisherman's Blues" only came about when Scots-born Mike went to stay with fiddler Steve Wickham in Dublin for a week in 1986 and ended up living in Ireland. The B-side of the programme, where it's the turn of the audience to ask the questions, can be heard tomorrow at . 0pm. Producer: Paul Kobrak.
