Big Wreck

The neo-prog hard rock outfit known as Big Wreck was formed by Ian Thornley (vocals, guitar), Brian Doherty (guitar), Dave Henning (bass), and Forrest Williams (drums). The quartet members met in the early '90s when they were studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Eventually, the four spent more time jamming together than attending class, and they soon decided to leave school to form Big Wreck. The group became a fixture around Boston and Cambridge, regularly playing local stages. After spending several years rehearsing and playing concerts, Big Wreck landed a contract with Atlantic Records in 1997. Their debut album, In Loving Memory Of..., was released in the fall of that year. Their sophomore effort, The Pleasure & the Greed, arrived in 2001, but after its poor commercial showing, the band broke up. Thornley formed a new band, simply called Thornley, but after reconnecting with Big Wreck guitarist Doherty some ten years later, he took his band, along with Doherty, into the studio and recorded Albatross, which appeared in 2012 under the Big Wreck name, following it in 2014 with the slightly more prog rock-sounding Ghosts. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Ian Thornley has just as good vocals as Chris Cornell and he plays guitar way better! Good band and very original!

Glad to see these guys back. Just bought Albatross & Ghosts- very cool. Always liked their sound. Hope get to see Big Wreck in concert again

Albatross is probably an even better album than In Loving Memory...eve n if it's biggest tunes aren't quite as epic. And Ghosts has some beauty Ian Thornley riffs. They are back, and now I need to go see them live.

Big Wreck's education/kn o w l e d g e and skill/talent combination brought something unique and fantastic to the Alternative Rock genre... I LOVE both albums - it just pains me that they had to go their separate ways...

So sad... Big Wreck allows us to see what could have been in the Alt Rock world. Now we're left with crap like Nickelback and Three Days Grace.

It's best to stick forks into your speakers to make them sound like this.

These guys were great. Amazing to see what music theory back ground can do with talented muscians. Too bad they broke up. But Ian thronley's New Project is excellnt
