Big Wednesday

Vital, energetic and life affirming are not words often associated with modern Indie acts, Big Wednesday however, look set to change that. Not satisfied with writing the kind of songs that will remain firmly embedded in your subconscious long after even the most cursory listen, Big Wednesday inject every note with a youthful passion that ensures that you won't just be humming the songs in your head; you'll be frantically tapping on the table as well. After supporting legendary acts Blondie and The Stranglers, M-Channel (Sky Digital channel 475) made a documentary about the band.
