Shaped in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1978, Another Pretty Encounter revolved around Mike Scott (b. Michael Scott, 14 Dec 1958, Edinburgh, Scotland; acoustic guitar/vocals), publisher from the fanzine Jungleland, and previous leader of many low-key works, including Karma as well as the Bootlegs. John Caldwell (acoustic guitar), Jim Geddes (bass) and ‘Crigg’ (b. Ian Walter Greig; drums) joined up with Scott in Another Very Face as well as the music group’s debut solitary, ‘All The Kids Like Carrie’, was released in 1979. Made by ex-Rezillos saxophonist William Strange, the music indicated Scott’s like of Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen and was announced ‘Record from the Week’ in the brand new Musical Express. Many major companies had taken curiosity about the music group until Virgin Information secured their providers in 1980. A unitary, ‘Whatever Happened TOWARDS THE Western world?’, followed before stress between the music group as well as the record firm brought the agreement to a premature end. A projected record, produced by Just Ones bass participant Alan Mair, have been completed and many of the recordings formed the foundation for the music group’s subsequent produces, released on Scott’s very own label, Poultry Jazz. Two singles, ‘Heaven Gets Nearer Every Time’ and ‘Spirit To Spirit’, plus an eight-track cassette, implemented. In 1982, Scott and Caldwell – at that time the remaining associates – opted to improve the music group’s name to Funhouse. ‘Out Of Control’ was released on Ensign Information, and Scott began documenting some single demos. He finished his relationship with Caldwell and produced a new device, the Waterboys.
