Over the last four decades, Mike Scott’s artistic curiosity has led to all sorts of sounds from his band The Waterboys. This time, he explores spoken word throughout their new album, called Good Luck Seeker, as he spins tales about actor Dennis Hopper and the iconic Bleecker Bob’s record store in New York City. Today we’ll find out what inspired the new record, plus Scott reinterprets his biggest hit, “The Whole of The Moon,” in a special live performance. On the next World Cafe.
