    ☄ Waterboys Leather Tour Jacket '88-'89 ☄

    A beautiful and very rare authentic leather tour jacket from the 1988 - 89 Tours.

    This jacket is more than likely one of a kind now.

    The jacket is embroidered with 'The Waterboys Ireland 88 - 89' and it has 'MCD' embroidered on the lapel.

    And Sharon Shannon wore this very jacket on the cover of her 'Out the Gap' album.

    This is a genuine piece of Waterboys history and a very unique artifact.

    Thank you Sharon Shannon.

  • ☄ Waterboys Interview Pic Disc circa '86 ☄

    This Picture Disc Interview was released on the Baktobak UK label around about 1986 (possibly 1987) and it is about 20 minutes in duration.

    The sound quality is somewhat 'ropey' but Mike chats about the 'This Is The Sea' LP, Van, Religion, Politics and more.

    There is no information about where the actual interview took place or the actual date (probably summer 1985).

    Thank you Karen Devine Farrell.

    ☄ 'Hosting Of The Shee' Signed Manuscript ☄


  • hosting






  • This Limited Edition Manuscript, with each copy individually signed by Mike and Steve, was only available for a very short time with advance orders of the excellent 'An Appointment With Mr Yeats' album from Townsend Records.

    Initially, it sold out in about an hour and the Dynamic Duo kindly hand signed more copies which also completely sold out within a couple of hours.

    The manuscript which shows the violin part from the album's opening track The Hosting Of The Shee, and rendered in the Wickham hand, is printed on 135 gram Matt Art Paper.

    It is a lovely addition to the album.

  • ☄ The Believer - July/Aug. 2009 Edition ☄

    This magazine comes with a free CD which contains a quite wonderful demo (which lasts for 10 minutes and 10 seconds) by Mike Scott of 'A Wild Holy Band' (an early version of 'Long Strange Golden Road') that is exclusive to this release.

    Mike writes: 'I wrote this song in my bedroom in Scotland at six in the morning, just up, in a songwriting mood, trawling through old notebooks and journals from the late 1990s looking for any ideas that might be lying there forgotten. To my surprise, I found the first verse intact on the page of a journal. I must have written it some years before, and had only the dimmest memory of it. The verse suggested more words, a lyrical theme, and in my head I heard a tune. The song followed'.

    This publication is quite difficult to find but it is well worth seeking out.
