“The Waterboys’ Mike Scott Always Has Something Cooking”
One of the most prolific songwriters around—his band’s B-sides have B-sides—it’s no surprise to hear Mike Scott tell Alex that he’s always got a new music idea cooking. The Waterboys have released three albums in the last five years and their new effort Where The Action Is might very well be one of their best ever. A simmering platter of Celtic soul, rock and roll, hip-hop and classic poetry, the band’s 13th long player is an energizing blast of rootsy bliss. In this interview Scott talks to Alex about being a musical outsider growing up, how he missed a chance to work with George Harrison and his admiration of The Clash’s Mick Jones. They also chat about the poetry of Robert Burns, making the perfect set list and working with Jim Keltner.
