Occasionally during live performances, Big Country will play several brief pieces of cover songs. Sometimes, lyrics are included; other times, the song is a brief instrumental. These songs are usually no longer than 30 seconds or so. During the song, Stuart will yell “Scratch” at which point the band will either begin playing a new cover song or launch into a Big Country song (almost always “Fields of Fire”, however “Angle Park” and “Honky Tonk Woman” have also been “scratched”).
