More Folk Rock with a Gaelic flavour.
The Waterboys had gone through some considerable changes when this was released in 1993. Mike Scott had got very possessive and band members had left, it was becoming more of his project with a load of session musicians. From the album “Dream Harder” with some great drumming from Carla Azar and a very loud (but good) guitar solo, and George Stathos on lead clarinet.
A couple of bonus B-sides.
“Karma” is quick and rocky, Blues Rock N Roll with added harmonica. For Car Stereo’s everywhere.
“Mister Powers” is classic, slowburn Blues, take it away….
The Demo is very, very rough and seems to be recorded on someones phone !
