    Why the hell not?

    WOW! Waterboys are one of my all time favorites! Wanted to start a thread but kind of figured I was the only one here. Mike Scott is the Waterboys and has been very active just released a new record a few weeks back "An Appointment With Mr. Yeats" which has a bit of magic from "the big music" days. Since Mike is The Waterboys I'm guessing a reunion means Karl Wallinger (world party) & Anthony Thistlewaite the classic line up!

    This may be the best cover song ever recorded.

    For me, "classic lineup" only needs Wickham.

    I'm with you on Steve! I've seen Mike both w/Steve and also full band when he toured here in N. America and both were fucking fantastic.. I know he tours and plays festivals in Europe all the time yet only seems to come here maybe once every 7 yrs.. too bad!

    I agree but Karl would be nice.

    Awesome! I would be all about this. I'm not incredibly versed in their material but I have a couple albums and I can tell what an influence they've had on The Frames and all Glen Hansard's stuff.

    I would LOVE this. They have long been on my "most underrated/under appreciated" band list. "Whole of the Moon" is pure genius.
