The Big Dish

The Scottish pop trio Big Dish formed in 1983 around vocalist and guitarist Steven Lindsay, guitarist Brian McFie, bassist Raymond Docherty, and saxophone/keyboard player Ian Ritchie. Signed to Virgin by 1986, the group released the album Swimmer, which pleased critics but failed to reach the charts. Second LP Creeping Up on Jesus also failed to ignite despite several excellent songs, and Big Dish were dropped from Virgin after the label's attempts to request song material were rebuffed. Essentially a duo of Lindsay and McFie by the turn of the decade, Big Dish signed to EastWest and released Satellites in 1991. ~ John Bush

i was a huge fan of the Big Dish after seeing the video for Christina's world on the 80s tv show no limits. Swimmer was a great album, wore out the cassette and ended up buying the vynal which got played over and over. Slide was one of the best songs on Swimmer.
Creeping up on Jesus was also a great record. Swan song and waiting for the parade being favorites off that disc.
Satellites was a bit of a let down, though miss america was a great track.

I vaguely remember this song - I was listening to the Damned and Bowie and the 'Femmes at the time.. but I remember liking the sweeping sound of this song - fun to find again. It takes me back.

How did I miss this band? At the time I was listening to Simple Minds, Aztec Camera, Big Country, Altered Images, etc.. How strange and unfortunate.

Pity there's no info about them. Scottish band - I believe from Glasgow - that were fairly well known over there in late 80s and early 90s.
Swimmer is a fantastic album, way under-rated. Too many other Scottish bands like Deacon Blue and Simple Minds got the focus around that time - Big Dish is a nugget of gold thats worth searching out.
