Remembrance day (Big Country) (LP 83)

Big Country The Seer (CD - Phonogram, 1986) ****

Genre: Scottish rock

Places I remember: Marbecks Records

Fab, and all the other pimply hyperboles: Look Away was the big hit single.

Gear costume: The Teacher

Active compensatory factors: This was the third studio album from Stuart Adamson's great band.

The band started to become more accessible around this point after the darker second album, with their distinctive sound from the first album intact. Kate Bush even makes an appearance!

It's still hard listening to it knowing what we do about Adamson's death but albums like this are all we have left, and I for one, cherish them.

Where do they all belong? In the bosom of a Big Country extravaganza.
