“World Party is a British pop/alternative rock band which is the vehicle for the songwriter Karl Wallinger. After a stint as musical director of a West End performance of The Rocky Horror Show, Wallinger joined a funk band called Out, before joining Mike Scott’s Waterboys in 1984 to record the album A Pagan Place. After 1985’s This Is the Sea, Wallinger departed to form World Party.”
Check out the band’YouTubes official Website, Facebook, MySpace, , Last.fm and Twitter. It would be impossible for me to try to convey the importance World Party has had on me. I can say they are my favorite band of all-time and seeing them play a few times over the years has been a defining highlight of going to shows for me (and I see A LOT of shows). Karl Wallinger has been gradually returning to performing recently and I am humbled and honored that he would take the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.
Thanks so much, Karl. Really, this is such a highpoint for me. Hopefully, I will be seeing you again very soon.
