Miss America Alights in Airdrie

Miss America was the hit single (#37)  from Satellites the third and final album by Airdrie band The Big Dish released in 1991.
It does sound a bit like the 80's hit Airdrie that wee bit too late.
They were active from 1983 to 1991 with the obligatory reunion in 2012.
The main man on vocals and guitar was Steven Lindsay. On this album he is joined by Brian McFie on guitars and Craig Armstrong on keyboards with programming and production by Warne Livesey.

Somewhat coincidentally we are now 25 Years on.

  1. Is this a charity shop purchase?

    1. Unlike Steve Earle&Del McCoury I think this IS a charity purchase.

    2. You are quite correct.Vinyl Oxfam Troon £2.99

  2. Chapelhall, to be precise.

  3. Apparently Steven Lindsay frequents the Excelsior of a Saturday.

  4. I never quite understood what all the fuss was about The Big Dish....I have a few singles and one album, but I never quite ever fell in love with them. I know someone who knows Stephen Lindsay and seemingly he's a top bloke.

    Oh and it was the same with The Silencers. Another band that many raved about but never did it for me.
