From "A Certain Chemistry" (page 3)

Q - What does Big Country mean?

"I think group names are always about six months after the fact. Somebody will have a great explanation for why the group's called this or that. At the time I think it just implied a sense of vastness, open spaces. A sense of new discovery. A sense of ambition."
"The band means more to me than the name. The band is something I've been looking for all my musical career. I believe in the right combination and this is the right combination."
"Big Country? It doesna mean anything. You canna describe it which is quite good. It's not as if it's something like Eddie and the Hot Rods It's not a flash-type name. I suppose it could be taken any way."
"Big Country's my life at the moment. My drums are my life and they work for Big Country...I know it's a completely amazing band and this band should definately see it through to the final conclusion."
