One of the most underrated bands from the 80s, The Big Dish formed in Airdrie, Scotland comprised of  Steven Lindsay (vocals/guitar), Mark Ryce (guitar) and John Harper (keyboards). The trio was subsequently joined on stage by Paul Albertis (bass) and John Hendry (drums).  Sadly, only after 3 albums under their belt, they disbanded.

Steven Lindsay went on to have a nice solo career and most notably joining composer Craig Armstrong for his 2002 release As If to Nothing.
