Title track from the new album “Thunder And Rain” is due for release on 23rd September 2022.
The world is navigating through a fraught time, economically and politically. Democracy is a deal between the people and the people in power, and that contract is under threat. Outraged but impotent, we consider our choices.
Written from the point of view of what we face in the aftermath of the last two years, the character in the song walks the line between right and wrong, unsure where that line is drawn and the consequences of following a moral imperative.
We are all making our way and, on our journey, trying to surpass the physical and spiritual roadblocks we encounter with grace and love for ourselves and our fellow travellers.
Described by Steve Louw as a “Black & Blue rock album”, this record carries a character of it’s own, moving through layers of laid back blues rock through to more upbeat contemporary and folky storytellers.
Released in September 1997 by Polygram, catalogue number BPCD 2. Mixed by Rob Jacobs and produced by Steve Louw.
In ’97, Big Sky released ‘Going Down With Mister Green’ and once again big sales and radio play followed. Throughout these 11 songs, Louw’s effervescent guitar licks and yearning lyrics dominate. The first single, ‘Wasted’, is the resigned but optimistic cry for spiritual renewal and another nod to the ‘Mr Green’ of the title.
