John Watts Biography

John Watts is one of the most popular and richest Musician who was born on December 27, 1954 in Frimley, Frimley, United Kingdom. John Watts is a British musician and multimedia artist. He was born into a family of singers on 27 December 1954 in Frimley, Surrey. Watts began his career as a mental health worker having studied clinical psychology before finding success as a musician with his band Fischer-Z. He currently lives and works in Brighton, UK.

His first solo album, One More Twist, was released in 1982 along with the debut solo single, One Voice, and was followed in 1983 by The Iceberg Model (1983). This project incorporated Dexys Midnight Runners’ brass section, strings, improvisations and experimental techniques usually associated with modern classical music. The Quick Quick Slow album (1984) followed, which he released as The Cry.

A second album in this series, Fish’s Head, arrived a year later (1989). Including the single “Say No”. In this period Watts performed to 167,000 people at a Peace Festival in East Berlin along with James Brown. He was interviewed about Thatcherism on German national news. After a change of record companies, Watts combined two different sets of recordings to produce the Destination Paradise album (1992). The title track was a chart single and it once again demonstrated Watts’ acute observation of political events. Will You Be There? was another chart single and was adopted by the fans as a firm live favourite. Watts’ next project was the Kamikaze Shirt album (1994). The single “Human Beings”, was a harrowing indictment of the low value of human life in many parts of the world. “Protection”, the first single from his next album Stream (1995), also dealt with the dark area of child exploitation.

1997 saw the release of one of Thirteen Stories High (1997). Until then, Watts had worked with a variety of musicians and band line-ups. Instruments had been arranged around his song structures. From this point in his career he was to turn this method on its head. Bigbeatpoetry (1999) and the Spiritual Headcase Remixes (2000) signalled a much more radical approach to making music. This, Watts’ thirteenth album, combined his poetry, prose and song lyrics with Ingo Worner’s DJ beats, audio collages and dance floor rhythms. The title track, Bigbeatpoetry, was a substantial ‘Beat’ style poem half-spoken over a simple hip-hop beat.

The second album, entitled Going Deaf for a Living (1980), reinforced Watts’ trademark insightful and humorous view of the world set against strong melodies. It included the track, “So Long”, his first chart hit single across Europe and in Australia. The band toured extensively throughout Europe and also made their first trip to America. European success was growing fast and the demand for a new album brought Watts back with the powerfully atmospheric Red Skies Over Paradise (1981). A performance at Pinkpop Festival that summer followed and also a performance on the bill with Bob Marley on his final European festival tour.
