The Waterboys: The Whole of the Moon and More

The Waterboys

Whole of the Moon is the song The Waterboys are most famous for in the United States. The UK band had a string of hits in the late 1980s, before the members went their separate ways in the early ‘90s. 

But founder Mike Scott still performs with a new set of cast members as The Waterboys. The band came out with a new album, called Modern Blues, earlier this year. It was recorded not in the UK, but in Nashville.

Before the band plays Tuesday night at Turner Hall Ballroom, Mike Scott joins Lake Effect's Bonnie North to discuss the changes to the band and the new album.

“Destinies Entwined" from The Waterboys' latest album "Modern Blues."
