Big Country – The Artist

Big Country are a Scottish rock band formed in Dunfermline, Fife, in 1981. The height of the band’s popularity was in the early to mid 1980s, although they still retain a cult following. The band’s music incorporated Scottish folk and martial music styles, and the band engineered their guitar-driven sound to evoke the sound of bagpipes, fiddles and other traditional folk instruments. Big Country originally comprised of Stuart Adamson (formerly of Skids, vocals/guitar/keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar/mandolin/sitar/vocals), Tony Butler (bass guitar/vocals) and Mark Brzezicki (drums/percussion/vocals).

Chance – The Song

Chance is the fourth single from Scottish rock band Big Country’s debut album, The Crossing.

The Compass – The Shape

Modelled into the face of a navigational compass which is often found on much of Big Country’s promotional material.  A compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions (or points). Usually, a diagram called a compass rose shows the directions north, south, east, and west on the compass face as abbreviated initials. The magnetic compass is the most familiar compass type. It functions as a pointer to “magnetic north”, the local magnetic meridian, because the magnetised needle at its heart aligns itself with the horizontal component of the Earth’s magnetic field. The magnetic field exerts a torque on the needle, pulling the North end or pole of the needle approximately toward the Earth’s North magnetic pole, and pulling the other toward the Earth’s South magnetic pole. The needle is mounted on a low-friction pivot point, in better compasses a jewel bearing, so it can turn easily. When the compass is held level, the needle turns until, after a few seconds to allow oscillations to die out, it settles into its equilibrium orientation.
