“Big Country inject a welcome blast of post-Punk adrenaline.. after more than three decades, their yodelling war cries and jagged New Wave power chords still strike a stirring post-Punk nerve” – Giants of Rock review, Classic Rock Magazine.

Formed in 1981 by guitar and founder members Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson, both native of teh band’s hometown Dunfermline in Scotland. Initially driven by shared vision of widescreen guitar melody, harmony and lyric, the classic Big Country sound was further enhanced later that Summer by the arrival of drummer Mark Brzezicki and bass player Tony Butler. This is the Big Country that (with Producer Steve Lillywhite), recorded the classic debut album ‘The Crossing’ in 1983.

The band broke massively wordwide with the release of the album’s classic singles “Fields of Fire”, “Chance” and signature song “In A Big Country”, which went on to become massive worldwide hits, selling over 2 million copies and driving “The Crossing” to 3 prestigious Grammy nominations in the USA.
