It's Officially Big Country

Just remember...they are NOT Australian.

They are Scottish.

Thank you.

Huh? Why would Big Country be Australian? Other than the fact Australia is a big country, of course.

Big Country are one of the most Scottish sounding bands ever ever ever. lol

RIP Stuart

You and Ewen.

April and I have had this discussion about how I used to think they were Australian... I was thinking about it last night because I was listening to some mp3s.

Yes, Stuart Adamson committed suicide. Very sad.
