Odd article, very weird title (Why Scotland’s indie bands, from Belle & Sebastian to Mogwai, are shouting “YES” to independence) but a curious nugget:
Both the opposing campaigns—the pro-independence “YES Scotland” and pro-union “Better Together”—in the search for a distinctively Scottish anthem tried to use the optimistic ’80s pop hit “In A Big Country” (by Big Country), which features Scottish bagpipes.
Big Country declined to endorse either the “Yes” or the “No” campaign.
