Music: The ‘Big Music’ of Vigo Thieves
Track: Vigo Thieves – She’s On Fire
For fans of: U2, Simple Minds etc
Remember ‘The Big Music’ of the mid 80s? Simple Minds (pre-Don’t You Forget About Me), U2 (pre-Rattle And Hum), Big Country, The Waterboys, The Alarm – Celtic, epic, grand, inspirational rock music big on keyboards and aspirations? The Vigo Thieves do. Well, actually, from the look of them they don’t ‘remember’ it – but they’ve learned all about it from their dads’ record collections.
Formed in Wishaw in 2008, the Vigo Thieves – Stevie Jukes (vox/guitar), Barry Cowan (guitar/vox), Gordon Phipps (bass) and Al Jukes (drums) – are now on their 2nd EP and preparing to win hearts and minds this summer.
The question is, can their celtic grandeur melt the stony hearts of the Classic Rock community? Listen to She’s On Fire to decide.
