Big Country at The Peppermint Lounge 1982

After further search of utube I found that the Big Country concert recorded on Saturday 21 August 1982 at The Peppermint Lounge, 100 fifth Avenue New York was not on there.  I have an account on Utube called Willow 261000 so dedcided to try and recorded one track from the gig you can follow the link below.  Over the next few weeks I intend to upload the whole gig obviously more professional…

Peppermint Lounge – New York 1982

New York, the Big Apple, Skyscraper, Yellow Taxis, Steaming drains??…  A steaming band.  Well we were after the show.

Five gigs into the bands' now length career.  A fixed camera captures what, as I can only remember, (as I haven't seen the vid myself) a very nervous yet exuberant debut in the USA, in true club monitoring style.


"We need a transformer to plug our gear into"

Bemused conscript roadie from Dunfermline

"No f***ers told me"


"Oh shit"

Supporting the members and Darlene Love, with the classic collapsing of the drum riser, this vid is priceless archive material.  It didn't capture the biss up after though.

Aah memories
