The Rezillos & Big Country
Two great bands play their much loved hits as part of East Lothian's Saltire Festival 2019.
THE REZILLOS smashed into the rock scene and found themselves inadvertently caught up in the Punk or New Wave movement. Their debut single, I Can’t Stand My Baby shot them to underground fame initially via airings on John Peel’s radio show. Their classic singles My Baby Does Good Sculptures, Top of the Pops and Destination Venus signalled critically acclaimed milestones for the band.
The band reformed in 2002 after playing Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Festival. They played exceptional sell-out shows in the USA and won over a new generation of fans. Their UK shows have re-established them as one of the most exciting bands currently on display, with a verve and energy that puts many younger bands to shame.
BIG COUNTRY perform classic hits and live favourites including Harvest Home, Fields of Fire, In A Big Country, Chance, Wonderland, Look Away and The Teacher. Formed in 1981 by the late Stuart Adamson and Bruce Watson, Big Country are steeped in a stunning catalogue of proud and stirring hit songs. The band – Bruce Watson (guitars/vocals); Mark Brzezicki (drums, vocals); Jamie Watson (guitars/vocals) are augmented on stage by singer/guitarist Simon Hough and bassist Scott Whitley.
