    Karl Wallinger was a member of The Waterboys for two albums... A Pagan Place and This Is the Sea.



    He left The Waterboys to form World Party in 1986.

    World Party is a British pop / alternative rock band, which is essentially the solo project of Karl Wallinger. He sings and plays most of the instruments himself, using multitracking to create the studio sound.

    Wallinger suffered a brain aneurysm in February 2001. Which left him unable to speak. After a five year recovery proccess he began to tour again in 2006.



    World Party Studio Albums:

    * Private Revolution (1986)
    * Goodbye Jumbo (1990)
    * Bang! (1993)
    * Egyptology (1997)
    * Dumbing Up (2000)

    This song has a special place in my heart. (It encompassed my little hippie chick.)

    Sunshine


    Give it all away - Has one of my favorite lyric lines.
    "Hypocrites and zealots are struggling for the throne.
    King and queens and presidents younger than the Stones."



    Karl helped produce Sinéad O'Connor's 1987 debut album. Here she is backing vocals for World Party's debut in 1986... gotta love her dancing :D

    Private Revolution



    Released in 2008 Karl and Peter Gabriel were the Big Blue Ball's project's originators... 17 years in the making...

    Wow! I listened to the 2008 video, and this guy has made a remarkable recovery and comeback.



    This is a new artist for me, so I did some reading on Karl. He basically was a one man band for World Party, amazing! I will definitely check more of his work out. I really like the folksy feel to his music :tup:
