The Scottish pop trio Big Dish formed in 1983 around vocalist and guitarist Steven Lindsay, guitarist Brian McFie, bassist Raymond Docherty, and saxophone/keyboard player Ian Ritchie. Signed to Virgin by 1986, the group released the album Swimmer, which pleased critics but failed to reach the charts. Second LP Creeping Up on Jesus also failed to ignite despite several excellent songs, and Big Dish were dropped from Virgin after the label's attempts to request song material were rebuffed. Essentially a duo of Lindsay and McFie by the turn of the decade, Big Dish signed to EastWest and released Satellites in 1991. ~ John Bush, Rovi
