The Saw Doctors were formed in Tuam, Co. Galway in 1988,  their second single I Useta Lover went to Number One in Ireland in September 1990 and was still Number One that Christmas. Having then re-released their first single N17 and on the back of I Useta Lover's success, N17, which was produced by Mike Scott of The Waterboys, went to Number One. Their first album, If This Is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back, was Number One for most of 1991.

Over the years The Saw Doctors have built up a reputation as a great live band, they have toured Australia, Canada, USA, Sweden, Germany, Holland, Norway and the UK. Paul Sexton of The Times in London observed that "if they could bottle the sort of bonhomie that can make an entire concert hall feel better, The Saw Doctors would have the medicine show to end them all".
