A love for the sea and a Lou Reed tune gave London outfit the Waterboys their name. Frontman Mike Scott grew up playing punk music and formed his band with Anthony Thistlethwaite and Kevin Wilkinson. Their self-titled debut (1983) introduced the world to their hugely ambitious and dramatic sound. A move to Ireland brought a sound more appropriate for that land, and the critically-appreciated Fisherman's Blues (1988) turned their sound down a few notches into the folk genre. The Waterboys disbanded in the mid-90s when Scott went solo and Wilkinson tragically committed suicide; but the new century brought them back with four successful releases between 2000-2007. A brand new lineup put together in 2011 included a fiddle, saxophone, trombone and flute. Modern Blues (2015) was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, making the Waterboys a truly international and eclectic outfit.
