House of Bonzer

 

Scotlands finest band from the 80′s with the powerful anti war song written by Stuart Adamson at the time of the Falklands War. The lyrics are a very moving and astute observation of  war, any war not just the Falklands.Needless to say Stuart Adamson was a man of peace and a humanitarian who created a totally unique sound with the rest of Big Country, they made the guitars sound like Bagpipes which is clearly a nod to their Celtic roots, sometimes dismissed as a pop band, they were deeper than that, revered by U2 amongst many of their peers as a major band of substance. Stuart sadly took his own life in 2001.have a listen to this song on you tube, and as it said on my copy of John Lennons Instant Karma– PLAY LOUD !!
