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).
East of Eden – The Song
‘East of Eden’ is a song by Scottish rock band Big Country, released in 1984 as the lead single from their second studio album Steeltown. It was written by Big Country and produced by Steve Lillywhite. “East of Eden” reached No. 17 in the UK, and No. 12 in Ireland. Lyrically it’s a questioning song about always having to look for any hope or inspiration. A music video was filmed in Glasgow to promote the single.
The Cog – The Shape
Modelled into a mechanical cog. A gear or cogwheel is a rotating machine part having cut teeth or, in the case of a cogwheel, inserted teeth (called cogs), which mesh with another toothed part to transmit torque. Geared devices can change the speed, torque, and direction of a power source. Gears almost always produce a change in torque, creating a mechanical advantage, through their gear ratio, and thus may be considered a simple machine. The teeth on the two meshing gears all have the same shape.[
