About Fischer-Z
Fischer-Z lyrics

Fischer-Z were a British rock band, who released nine albums between 1979 and 2002. The original line-up consisted of John Watts (vocals, guitar), David Graham (bass), Steve Skolnik (keyboards) and Steve Liddle (drums).


Fischer-Z's biggest hit was "The Worker", one of the few records to go down the chart, after being featured on BBC Television's Top Of The Pops. In an interview in Record Mirror in 1981, Watts put this down to the remix of the song from the album version which put the emphasis on the keyboards rather than his guitar. Watts's lyrics drew heavily on his experiences as a mental health care worker. They were more popular in mainland Europe than their native UK - particularly Portugal, Belgium and Germany, where Watts continued to have hits as a solo artist after he decided to break the band up. They were most successful of all in Australia, where they achieved two Top 20 hits with "So Long" and "The Perfect Day".

Watts founded a new band with the same name in 1987, with him being the only original member, although Skolnik made a minor contribution to one track on their first album. The albums released with the new line-up were less successful than those recorded earlier.

There was a 2004 reunion of the original band for one short show which features on the 'Garden Party' DVD.

In 2007, Watts scored a radio hit in Germany with the song, "Susanne's Song (Dance On)".
