Big Country and the guitar bagpipe sound

This was Big Country performing on Channel Four’s Tube programme.  Every week, Paula Yates and Jools Holland would ramble pretentiously or incoherently with cues between presenters either deliberately fumbled or they were creating an edgy feel, who knows?  Paula Yates no longer with us of course and neither is the front man of the band, Stuart Adamson.  I adored this album at the time with the whining bagpipe sound on the guitars and it was an era when Scottish pop seemed to be everywhere.
