Episode 97: Big Country – He Definitely Left His Mark

You might only know them as a one-hit wonder, but this Scottish rock band is so much more than that. Big Country came out swinging in the early 80’s with their debut album, The Crossing, which made them a worldwide success. But why didn’t their hits keep coming outside of the UK? We talk about their story, compare them to similar acts of the time, and look at all the little hiccups that stopped these guys from having the staying power that they were clearly capable of. We also talk about how their discography is totally worth a listen through and how they deserved better than just being seen as having one hit song in the states. And while you learn about these underdogs, why not drink yourself up from Harvest from Oxbow Brewing!
