"Re-release in a digipack with 3 bonus tracks. An ever-shifting Scottish group led by singer/songwriter David Scott, the only constant member, The Pearlfishers are a glorious soft pop band mixing acoustic-based music with subtle orchestral flourishes, rather like a Glasgow-based Prefab Sprout with a major Brian Wilson fixation. Since forming in 1989, The Pearlfishers have refined and broadened their sound while maintaining a steadily growing cult following. David Scott began writing songs while a teenager in Glasgow in the early '80s. In the summer of 1984, Scott played his earliest bedroom efforts to local musician Bobby Henry, who offered to put a pair of them on The Shift Compilation, an anthology of Glasgow bands released on Henry's own Shift Records. Released under the band name Chewy Raccoon, a joke name that stuck, the songs attracted enough attention that Scott and the band were signed to Shift's distributor, Phonogram, who released the group's sole single, 'Don't Touch Me,' in August 1985."
