FISCHER-Z


FISCHER-Z

Fronted by the enigmatic John Watts (vocals/guitar), Fischer-Z leaped onto the music scene in 1979 with their quirky debut album, Word Salad. This quartet (also featuring Steve Skolnick on keyboards, Steve Liddle on drums and David Graham on bass) played a rough-and-tumble form of new wave that was equal parts Roxy Music and Talking Heads with art-pop and prog-rock leanings. 

Reforming Fischer-Z in 1987 with Watts being the only original member, Fischer-Z hit big in Europe with the single "The Perfect Day" and the album Reveal. Though the album sounded nothing like the Fischer-Z of old, Watts took his finely tuned talents and presented them to a much wider audience.

John Watts has been described by a fellow artist as "a force of nature". In the three decades of his career he has amassed a considerable body of creative work. His distinctive writing has steadily evolved against a variety of musical forms encompassing written word, poetry and humour. He has a distinguished catalogue of seventeen original albums with sales in excess of two million.
