The world-renowned Scottish-born rock band was formed in 1981 by former The Skids member Stuart Adamson, along with Bruce Watson, Tony Butler and Mark Brzezicki
The height of the band's popularity was in the 1980s, although it retained a cult following for many years after. The band's music was most recognisable for the sounds it infused with Scottish folk and martial music styles, as well as for playing and engineering their guitar driven sound to evoke the inspirational spirit of bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments.

The music is outstanding. Big Country always were one of the best bands to emerge from Britain in the early eighties and, despite the loss of Stuart Adamson and retirement of Tony Butler, they are still going strong today.
This captures them during the greatest hits tour in 1990 and the reason I call it 'not quite BC' is that it features third drummer Pat Aherne who never seemed to quite fit into the band. Its worth buying just for the first track alone which is he best recorded version of Restless Natives I've heard to feature Stuart Adamson.
It starts from the moment Stuart enters the stage and starts playing whereas the full version starts with a guitar build up from Bruce then Tony comes on and then the drums kick in and finally Stuart appears. Why 'O' Why did they give us the cut version ????

50 minutes, 1990 / 2013
Big Country were the Scottish equivalent of Ireland's U2, appearing in the same early 1980s time frame and growing from similar roots of punkish teenage bands. The early recordings of both bands shared the same producer in Steve Lillywhite, and in an only slightly different alternative universe Big Country could have enjoyed U2's massive later success.
Both bands were fronted by singers who wrote about topics large and small, tackling world issues as frequently as personal relationships. One difference: Big Country had two guitarists who frequently sounded like bagpipers, as opposed to U2's one guitarist whose more processed sound frequently resembled anything but a guitar.
This set, shot at London's Town and Country venue in 1990 - during a period in which their usual drummer Mark Brzezicki was replaced by Pat Ahern - is short at 50 minutes. Yet it contains all their major hits plus one cover, Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World," which was a pretty recent hit at the time, having been released by Neil the previous year. Big Country's fans may not be as numerous as U2's, but it is apparent from the seething mosh pit that was the lower level at this show that their fans were less mellow and more rabid than U2's. Not really surprising, as BC's songs were almost always more energetic than those of their Celtic rivals.Read more ›
