Biography

The Large were instigated in Manchester, Britain, in Oct 1987 by Andy Couzens (b. 15 July 1965, Macclesfield, Cheshire, Britain; acoustic guitar), who had previously plied his trade within the yet-to-blossom Rock Roses. Joined up with by John Matthews (b. 23 Sept 1967, Torquay, Devon, Britain; vocals), Simon Davies (b. 24 January 1967, Manchester, Britain; bass) and Chris Goodwin (b. 10 August 1965, Oldham, Lancashire, Britain; drums), the High instantly eschewed the original paths available to little bands by preventing the pitfalls of incessant touring. Rather, the quartet fabricated a couple of unashamedly classic acoustic guitar/pop tunes and agreed upon to London Information after just one single high-profile home-town present. Armed with such a very simple musical formulation, the High could actually just work at an unusually fast pace, launching three singles in 1990, each which steadily pushed the music group further on the brink from the open public’s consciousness. Ultimately, at the convert of the entire year, a remixed edition of the debut, ‘Container Set Move’, proved helpful its way as much as number 28 in the united kingdom charts, permitting them to focus on creating brand-new materials throughout 1991.
