Slide - The Big Dish

When the compact disc format was a new event, every single disc in the house was a true event. My sister had a couple of cd's, I owned one or two, but my brother had managed to find a few cd's very cheaply. One of them was a compilation on which this song featured: 'Slide' by the Big Dish. I'd never heard of the group, but the song - which sounded a bit like Tears for Fears - intrigued me. Naturally, when I saw the single some time later I had no reservations about buying it.

The Big Dish were a Scottish rock band, formed in Airdrie, Scotland in 1983. The band was formed by Steven Lindsay, Mark Ryce and John Harper. Early live performances in support of Lloyd Cole gave them a wider audience. However, this single did not chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 698
Found: V&D, Den Haag, December 6, 1988
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Slide' / 'Reverend killer'
