Big Country: Country Life

Tom Hibbert, Smash Hits, 27 September 1984

Don't call them pop stars — "we hate that word". Big Country would rather be thought of as musicians, thanks. They're a lot more interested in things like rehearsing and eating corned-beef "grinders" than any of the more glamourous stuff pop has to offer. Always have been, too — as Tom Hibbert found out.

Total word count of piece: 1966
