"The Big Dish were a Scottish trio whose members included the superb songriter Steven Lindsay and Craig Armstrong, who went on to win a Golden Globe for his score of Moulin Rouge (go figure). Their sound is a bit like a more traditional Blue Nile.
"Miss America" was perhaps their biggest hit, a melancholy track about beauty pageants. A cofavorite of mine is the jangly "25 Years" with its slide guitar.
All in all this is a bit more mellow than their previous two releases. Still, it's not to be missed if you like stuff like Deacon Blue, China Crisis or The Blue Nile."
