9 BIG COUNTRY, One The Juggler, Oxford Apollo Theatre, Tuesday 27 September 1983

Drove over to Oxford with the idiot friend of an idiot friend; he knocked a child over on the way out of Swindon - luckily the kid was okay - but after the gig we only took about 20 minutes to get back to Swindon from the centre of Oxford! Maniac!

After a poor support band, Big Country opened with the rocking "1,000 Stars" and played a fine set of anthemic terrace-chant rock, with excellent, bagpipe-like guitar embellishments from my former Skids guitar hero Stuart Adamson. A very impressive lightshow as well, particularly for the excellent "Porrohman", my set highlight.
