The Saw Doctors are powered by Tuam song writers Davy Carton and Leo Moran with a current lineup that includes former Waterboy Anthony Thistlethwaite on saxophone, Kieran Duddy, keyboards & accordion, Rickie O’Neill, drums, Will Merrigan, bass guitar, Noelie McDonnell & Tommy Carton on backing vocals.

The Saw Doctors debut album ‘If This Is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’ went straight to No.1 on its release in 1991, selling a half a million copies worldwide. The second single ‘I Useta Lover’ spent nine weeks at No.1 in the Irish Charts, going on to become the biggest selling Irish single ever.
