Saw Doctors – The Further Adventures

Saw Doctors – The Further Adventures

Jan 12, 2012

The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 14 January 2012 is from The Saw Doctors with ‘The Further Adventures.

The Saw Doctors formed in 1986 in Tuam, County Galway have achieved 18 Top 30 singles in Ireland, including three number ones.

Their first number one, “I Useta Lover” topped the Irish charts for nine consecutive weeks in 1990 and still holds the record for the country’s all-time biggest-selling single.

Renowned for their live performances, the band has a cult following, especially in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. On 15 February 2008, they received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Meteor Ireland Music Awards.
They describe themselves as a band who were ‘Born into a repressed, catholic, conservative, small-town, agrarian, angst-ridden and showband infested society we’re trying to preserve the positive elements of our background and marry them to the sounds which have culturally invaded our milieu through TV, radio, 45′s, fast food restaurants, 24 hour petrol stations and electric blankets!’

They were recently on tour in Scotland and lead singer Davy Carton dropped in to studio 2 a few hours before going on stage at the Glasgow Barrowlands for a chat with our own Edmund.

Album of the Week with Edmund McKay, Saturday 14 January at 12 noon and 12 midnight and Monday 16 January at 6.00pm.
