I love working outside events. We’ve been asked to work at The Three Stooges yearly conference, the Mutter Museum, literary conferences, and musical venues. This weekend, we have a chance to work with World Cafe Live (one of my favorite venues) and promote Mike Scott’s new book: Adventures of a Waterboy.
I don’t know how you got through life in the 1980s and early 90s without listening to or knowing about The Waterboys – the heyday of the band. But, if you did miss out, it’s not too late. Go out, buy an album and give it a go.
I don’t even remember how or why I started getting interested in The Waterboys, I just knew that I thoroughly enjoyed their music. So, when we were offered a chance to help promote Mike Scott’s new autobiography and get involved with the show, well, I could barely contain my excitement. I still haven’t figured out how to express glee on a blog – would it be !!!! or *&$@ or wooooooweeeeee? In any case, I’m thrilled – the books are packed and I’m ready to go. I’m even listening to The Waterboys right now, prepping for the show.

Mike Scott’s long awaited musical memoir, Adventures Of A Waterboy, is published in a beautiful hardback edition by Lilliput Press of Dublin on 6th June. Paperback publication, through UK publisher Jawbone Press, will follow in August. Adventures Of A Waterboy was written between 2008 and 2010 and runs to 272 pages. It’s an eye-opening account of Mike’s life in music; serious, funny, profound, whimsical and enigmatic, with blow-by-blow descriptions of his days in teenage garage bands, the rise of The Waterboys, his exploits with Steve Wickham and the rest of the gang in the west of Ireland, and much, much more.
