The band's remarkable resurgence over the past year has brought them to a whole new audience who will welcome this opportunity to soak up the songs that have delighted Saw Doctors fans since 1990, when they scored their first No1 with I Useta Lover.

Formed in 1986, The Saw Doctors were helped along the road to fame and fortune when they were taken under the wing of Mike Scott of The Waterboys who saw them during their six-week residency at the Quays Bar, Galway. Scott took them on tour with The Waterboys and produced their rousing, singalong debut single, N17, which does for the West Of Ireland what Route 66 did for America.

Despite their abiding love of Ireland, The Saw Doctors' refuse to see their native land through rose-tinted glasses and have never shied away from controversy. They parodied catholic confession in Bless Me Father, took a hilarious swipe at a disgraced former Bishop of Galway in Howya Julia, and appeared live on TV at the 1991 IRMA Awards with singer Davy Carton dressed as a priest and the rest of the band dressed as altar boys.

Perhaps the best-publicised departure from the fold came in 1993, when keyboardist Tony Lambert jumped ship after winning approximately one million euros when he hit the jackpot in the Irish Lottery. It's interesting to reflect that he quit the band after winning just once. Had he remained, he'd have won twice, when the band hit No1 again last year with their rousing cover of The Sugababes "About You Now".
