The Saw Doctors Biography - From Local Success to UK and US Rock Fame
Despite an ever changing line-up, founding members Leo Moran and Davy Carton remain the face of one of Ireland's most successful rock groups, thirty years after they came together in Tuam, County Galway. They first came to the attention of music fans after touring with the likes of Hothouse Flowers and The Stunning, whilst also playing at popular venue the Quays Bar. It would however be a support slot with The Waterboys in 1988 that helped them on their way to becoming the most successful Irish rock band since U2. Second single 'I Useta Lover' proved a major breakthrough, hitting the number one spot and finding its way to being the biggest-selling single in Irish history. This was quickly followed by debut album This is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back which again hit the top spot in 1991.
The band's first success in the UK didn't come until the mid-'90s when they released two EPS, Small Bit of Love and World of Good, and a US breakthrough followed when track 'Never Mind the Strangers' featured in a Guinness advertisement. Live albums, extensive touring and festival appearances followed, with a notable highlight their set at the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury - shortly before their announcement of a break from touring in 2013. Fortunately, 2016 sees them return to the stage for a number of acoustic dates across the country. Don't miss out on their return - get The Saw Doctors tickets on StubHub now.
