- The Waterboys sound: intentionally hard to peg, as founder, singer, and songwriter Mike Scott loves to play with genres, but the word "lovely" suits them fine
- The number of musicians who have performed live as a Waterboy: over 70
- The number of years since The Waterboys have toured North America: 6
- What's changed in that time: they've released the poetry-fueled An Appointment with Mr. Yeats and are planning to drop another album in 2014
- How Mike Scott and fiddler Steve Wickham tour the States: with an American version of the usually UK-based band
- Why Scott does that: the American lineup is rock solid, and work visas are expensive and not fun
- Where you've heard "Fisherman's Blues": in Good Will Hunting, Waking Ned Devine, and every time a maritime man finds the mermaid of his dreams
- Other tunes you're likely to hear: the rollicking, piano-heavy "A Girl Called Johnny" and the swooning ode to astronomy "The Whole of the Moon"
