NOTES ON
BIG COUNTRY

BY BRUCE WATSON - GUITARIST

It was a freezing cold afternoon in January 1985. The flat that I lived in was part of a renovated mill situated in the Brucefield area of Dunfermline. An area notorious for flooding, I had taken the precaution of placing sand bags by the door. This proved futile as the nimbus from Hell that floats permanently above Fife had opened up and the rainwater had seeped into the hall soaking my worn out 'Wilton'.

The intercom buzzed loudly in the room and woke me up. It was Geoff. (Geoff, who the hell is Geoff? I don't know anyone called Geoff)

Geoff Emerick was best known as the long time engineer at Abbey Road Studios, where he worked on classic Beatles recordings from 'Revolver' onwards with George Martin. I ushered Geoff and his partner into the house for some hot coffee and a dry patch. I had received a message the day before on my answer-phone that Geoff 'unrecognisable second name' would be arriving at... (then the tape ran out).

It was a huge surprise to have the sound engineer for "Sgt Pepper' sitting in my house, his sodden Hush Puppies resembling Tufty the Squirrel and his drowned mate Harry.

We waited for the rain to subside then strolled round to Stuart's house which was situated on the other side of the railway tracks. Stuart had just purchased some new hi-tech motorcycle, either a Yamaha or a Honda, can't remember which, but it certainly was a beautiful looking beast. Little did I realise that this was going to be my mode of transport for the next six weeks.

The script for the movie had been sent to Stuart the previous week. The front page simply said "Restless Natives' an original screenplay by Ninian Dunnett. Will, with his wart-infected fingers, is in a dead end job sweeping dog shit off the streets for the local corporation. Ronnie works in Hardwick's joke shop selling plastic turds and false tits to all and sundry. Angry mothers whose children have bought itching powder or other nasty substances frequently beat him up in his shop. Disillusioned, they fancy themselves as Rob Roy/Robin Hood characters and resort to highway robbery. Wearing clown and wolfman masks they hold up buses and steal from the rich (American tourists) and give to the poor (themselves and a hamster called Bruce). While they break like the wind across the Scottish Highlands on their shagged out moped, their bizarre series of robberies become the focus of world-wide attention and the media quickly turn them into the biggest tourist attraction since a terrifying long necked beastie popped up for a snifter round Loch Ness.

Park Lane studios is situated in the Southside of Glasgow, housed in a converted 19thCentury stable, the studio is situated close by to Queens Park just two miles from the city centre. The complex is run by Rab Andrews who also managed various Glasgow bands including Texas. The journey there and back was a 2-hour round trip. Stuart had complete bikers leathers, full face helmet and protective boots. All I had was a WW2 replica flying jacket, Levis with holes in the knees and Sahara desert boots. As I dismounted the bike my legs were so frozen they stayed in the sitting position for the next few hours. This went on for the next few weeks till I could take it no more and booked myself into a hotel.

Geoff and the band worked really well. Both Tony and Mark had done a lot of work with Chris Thomas at Air studios in the past so they were all connected. Geoff is the only person ! have seen make crossfades by splicing 3 foot diagonal cuts in the master tape then glue them back up. Rick Stevenson, (the film's producer) had given us a rough copy of the movie with songs from our first two albums which they used to set the tempo on a few edits in the movie. Stuart had came up with some more music but they weren't keen and suggested we do a couple of soundalike ideas so that the film still had the same flow, hence the song "Home Come The Angels (soundtrack) being a dead ringer for 'Come Back To Me (2nd album track). Another piece was basically a soundalike for 'The Crossing' (early B-side). This was too much of a compromise for us and there was a bit of an atmosphere between the band and Mike Hoffman (the director) for a while. What we didn't realise was that we were bit-players in someone else's project like the actors that we watched everyday on the monitor. I have a great memory of being invited on location to see a few scenes being filmed. Ronnie and Will were to drive through the streets of Wester Hailes throwing money to all the local school children. The twenty pound notes had pictures of Boy George instead of the real Queen on them. Seemingly all the local stores had to keep chasing away all the youngsters who were trying to buy sweeties with them.

We never did another soundtrack again which is a shame because I think Big Country's music definitely lends itself to the medium. Overall it was really rewarding and different from the usual process of making records, i.e. we weren't under the pressure of coming up with a hit. Stuart didn't have the extra burden of writing lyrics. Watching Geoff Emerick at the controls was, well, just a dream come true for me. So sit back and enjoy watching two Central Belt Neds tackle the problem of unemployment by turning to highway robbery.

"ONE OF SCOTLAND'S BEST-LOVED CULT MOVIES”

SCOTTISH SUNDAY EXPRESS

Ronnie (Joe Mullaney) and Will (Vincent Friell) are two free-wheeling lads living on a housing estate in Edinburgh. Broke and bored, the two decide to politely rob coachloads of tourists travelling through the Highlands for a bit of cash. Donning a wolf and a clown mask and armed with a puffer gun shooting out curry powder, the duo soon become a hit with the tourists and the public alike.

As the two follow in the great tradition of Robin Hood and Rob Roy, their exploits make them a tourist attraction bigger than the Loch Ness monster. But not everyone is a fan – the local police are closing in on them, assisted by a vacationing CIA agent (Ned Beatty- Deliverance, Network).

Featuring an infectious soundtrack by Big Country and stunning Highlands scenery, this much-loved and, until now, much-missed film is a thoroughly enjoyable gem.
