The good thing about having a job that covered the whole of Scotland was that i got to visit lots of small record shops from Ayr to Elgin. One of the smallest and the best was in the City of Discovery and home of Danny Wilson Dundee. On one visit I picked up two 12" eps "Hurt" and "Sacred" (I'm ashamed to say because I liked the covers and the name of the band - The Pearlfishers, as well as the fact that they were 2nd hand and very cheap).
I soon tracked down an lp "Za Za's Garden" (1993) and I've bought pretty much everything they have released since.
The Pearlfishers is the recording name used by "Scottish Brian Wilson" David Scott.
Now if i were to have a chart of most over-rated artists Brian Wilson would feature, always behind Bob Dylan but that is a different matter. However, I do like music that is often described as being inspired by Wilson (I think that basically mean intricate instrumentation, complex production and loads of harmonies). The Pearlfishers fall into this bracket.
Since that debut lp they have released the following on various labels
Strange Underworld of the Tall Poppies (1997)
Young Picnickers (1999)
Across the Milky Way (2001)
Sky Meadows (2003)
A Sunflower at Christmas (2004 and that rare thing a good Xmas album)
Up With the Larks (2007)
Over the years there haven't been any radical changes in style just fine tuning the format of melody and harmony and in fact "up With the Larks" from 2007 is I think the best thing he has done. Although David Scott is almost a 1 man cottage industry Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub has co-written and played on a number of the lps (In fact they played together in 2007 on the sit down and sing tour)
I've posted 3 tracks to show how the sound has evolved. The first "Lord Franklyn" comes from "Strange World" and the next 2 are from "Up with the Larks"
Lord Franklyn - The Pearlfishers
Womack and Womack - The Pearlfishers
The Umbrellas of Shibuya - The Pearlfishers
As ever availability is patchy - HMV has most of the lps , however you can get them here direct from the record company (Marina - it is also worth checking out what else they have)
The bands website is here where you can listen to clips of tracks from all the lps (apart for Za Za's Garden)
