The former frontman of British new wave band Fischer Z is perennially popular in continental Europe.
John Watts split up Fischer-Z in summer of 1981. This performance from Cologne in 1982 is one of his first televised solo sets and includes solo and group material.
He is accompanied on the show by Dave Purdye (bass & backing vocals) and Derek Ballard (drums & backing vocals) who backed him on his first solo album ‘One More Twist’.
The set includes Fischer-Z anthems ‘Marliese’, ‘So Long’ and ‘Pretty Paracetemol’.
John Watts is now recording again as Fischer-Z and is once again active on the European gig circuit. He is also a talented multimedia performance artist, and last year performed a play at the Edinburgh Festival.
