“Going Deaf For A Living” is a 1980 album by Fischer-Z. This was the second album by Fischer-Z featuring the “classic line-up”. The guitar on this album was made more prominent, after their rather keyboard prominent debut.
Moving away from their prog leanings and embracing bits of reggae, Fischer Z had become a cohesive pop band capable of anything. Their hit single “So Long” had one of Watts’ most heartfelt vocals, while the playful (and slightly irritating) “Limbo” proved that he wasn’t always entirely serious. The band bounced off the walls on tracks like “Four Minutes In Durham (With You)” and “No Right,” yet they remained perfectly in control. The album’s title track remains one of Watts’ most brilliant songs, catchier than a pitcher’s glove (and “So Long” wasn’t too bad either!). With hardly a bad song in the bunch, this is still one of Fischer Z’s most popular albums.
The album featured the singles “Room Service”, “Crazy Girl”, “Limbo” and the most popular “So Long”.
