‘Swimming In Thunderstorms’ was recorded in Schenk Studio on the waterfront in Amsterdam October 2018, co-produced by John and Jan on his classic analogue Trident consul. Personal, political and passionate, this is Watts’ strongest Fischer-Z band album since the heady days of Red Skies Over Paradise and Going deaf for a Living. Whilst maintaining his usual premiere level songwriting and quirky observational wit, he has developed a modern musical palette by finding a band of musicians who can truly do justice to the width and depth of his musical ideas. The album features the permanent new line-up of John Watts (vocal, guitar and some keys) with Sin Banovic on drums, David Purdye on bass (An original member of the John Watts band), Adrien Rhodes on keyboards and Marian Menge on second guitar. The title track and songs such as ’Pumping Up The Drama’, ‘Stamp It Out’ and ‘The Islamic American’ all illustrate why ‘Swimming In Thunderstorms’ is a good metaphor for the current state of the world as well as John’s recent personal life experiences, factionalised into his songs.
