 +====== Big Sur ======
  
 +Alternative Rock\\
 +Glasgow, Scotland
 +
 +"In 1986 Andy Thornton (formerly of [[Rattling the Cage]]) formed a sophisticated pop trio based in Glasgow called Big Sur. 'I always wanted to play music full time and in the '80s I left my job as a Church of Scotland youth worker to play music and try 'make it' with my band which led to something of a dead-end rock and roll apprenticeship though I did sign to Chrysalis as a writer and learnt to express myself in songs as something of a second nature.'​
 +
 +The vaguaries of the mainstream pop world were neatly demonstrated when Chrysalis released Big Sur's 12 inch single '​Please Stay.' Record Mirror named it '​record of the week' while, the same week, NME called it a 'vile, disgusting whinge.'​ Big Sur broke up in 1989. Andy became involved in the alternative worship movement and contributed regularly to the Late Late Service, the Glasgow-based collective whose events and albums on [[Sticky Music]] were pioneering in bringing the dance rhythms of clubland to the worship experience."​ from [[https://​www.crossrhythms.co.uk/​articles/​music/​Andy_Thornton_Filling_The_Void_Of_Grief_With_Creativity/​24343/​p1/​|CrossRhythms]]
