The rock and rollercoaster history of The Saw Doctors is a tale of perseverance and hard graft. The very definition of journeymen rockers, Ireland's Saw Doctors have blazed back Phoenix-like from almost two decades of unsung glory. Out Of The Blue, their rambunctious cover of The Sugababes About You Now rocketed to number one in Ireland, restoring them to their rightful place as that nation's best-loved good-time band. Fronted by two talented songwriters, Leo Moran and Davy Carton, this is the band that entered the record books back in 1990 when I Useta Lover spent nine weeks at number one, becoming Ireland's best-selling single of all time. They followed up with another number one, number 17 and a chart-topping album, If This Is Rock And Roll, I Want My Old Job Back, but somehow the momentum wasn't maintained. Irresistibly singable songs (To Win Just Once, Hay Wrap and Same Oul' Town), still flowed from Moran and Carton, their exuberant live shows remained unparallelled celebrations of the spirit of great rock and their substantial phalanx of hardcore fans on both sides of the Atlantic never wavered in support. Instead of giving up once the hits had dried up The Saw Doctors toured America every year, building an ever-increasing fanbase, released 10 acclaimed albums and simply refused to go away. The group is now touring performing their extensive repertoire of hits.
