The Waterboys - We Will Not Be Lovers

Ha! Yesterday I bought tickets to see The Waterboys in Oslo in October. That's really something I look forward to as I haven't seen Mike Scott and his band perform live since 1986. That's right, a long time ago, and before their most famous and possibly best record, the extraordinary Fisherman's Blues from 1988 that was assembled from well over 100 different songs recorded over a two and a half year period. Here is the wonderful, seven minute "We Will Not Be Lovers", one of Scott's many brilliant songs. The folk rock on this album was both a surprising and in some weird way a natural continuation of Scott's musical journey. Listen to Steve Wickham's fiddle on this track, and you're hooked. It's such a great song, and hopefully it will be in their live set come October. Fingers crossed!
