In a previous post about the music enjoyed by fictional characters I mentioned a Waterboys reference in Stephen Booth’s first book Black Dog. The reference is in fact in his second book, Dancing With the Virgins.
‘That was the river, this is the sea’
Ben Cooper turned up the volume on his stereo and opened the cover of his Waterboys CD. He was amazed to find it dated from 1985. In fact, most of the music he possessed was the stuff he had liked twelve or fifteen years ago as a teenager.
