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.

I'm Tony McMahon and I've had two books published set in this time of crisis. "Original Rude Boy", the biography of Neville Staple of The Specials. "No Place To Hide", the biography of 80s boxer Errol Christie. I was very politically active during this period - not on Thatcher's side! View all posts by The Thatcher Crisis Years
