The Big Country Mailing List is a forum where Big Country fans can discuss all things
BC via email or the Web, although the discussions can occasionally wander off at a tangent... There are
usually around 200 subscribers although this can fluctuate a bit in the holidays etc.
The list was valiantly maintained by Markus Schöller from Bonn in Germany for about three
years. In June '97 he moved on to a new job and was therefore unable to continue the
running of the list. Fortunately for the list members Michael Toppa volunteered to take
over and a new list server was set up in May '97. This sadly ceased to exist in October 2000 but
around the same time a new web/email based list started run by Jason Shand and nearly all the list
members joined this new list called "Through a Big Country". Membership of the new list
continues to grow as more BC fans arrive online and find their way to the group.
How to join
You can get a good idea of who is on the list and where they are (the regulars anyway) on my
BC World Map of Fans. You are more than welcome to join
the list too, so either visit Eiledon
(Michael Toppa's site) to see more history and/or visit the website for Through a Big Country and click on
the 'join' button.
