Not a fan of Big Country then?
Is anyone?
They're alright.
Besides "In a Big Country" and that other single off the first album, name three of their songs.
Steeltown, East of Eden, and Wonderland.

I like Big Country's first album a lot. They got very patchy after that.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I've heard it in the past and enjoyed it, but it's been some time. I should find that THROUGH PERFECTLY LEGAL MEANS and give it another spin.

Naming three Big Country songs is easy for me, since I loved the Steeltown album back in the day.
Flame of the West
Just a Shadow
Raindance
Inwards from the first lp is a great song. too.



Also, House of the Devil is a cool movie. We saw it as sneek preview. The scene with the main character's friend
in the car, asking for directions was shocking.

Nothing wrong with bagpipes.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Agreed. My high school chem teacher took me outside once and played In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida on the b-pipes for me.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Sure enough, the drum solo went on for eight minutes. :disshame:

I was so psyched for that movie, I already crowned it "greatest film in history" before I saw it. I was very disappointed. It was way too slow paced, though I did like that they did the Break-Up Song by Greg Kihn Band. When it picked up at the end, I was already angry at the film. It was OK, but I ruined it by setting my sights too high.

Anyway, director Ti West is an up and comer in the horror business. He writes, directs and edits his films, I wish they wouldn't let him edit, because it hurts HOTD and The Roost. The film where he didn't have complete control was Cabin Fever 2, and he disowned it. It is by far his best film.

I remember I took a caravan holiday in Scotland about ten years ago and some half-pissed Jock would wake the whole site up with his wretched skirling every morning. I tried to steal them but he'd chained them to his caravan wheel with a bicycle lock. Nothing a pair of scissors didn't sort out.

I did not understand one word of that. Does anyone have a Geordie/English dictionary?

Heston became a gypsy and went to Scotland where an angry or drunk athlete woke people up by doing something wretched.
