For most of their eight year tenure, The Big Dish were essentially a duo. Other than Lindsay, the other constant was guitarist Brian McFie, the band's sound being as synonymous with his playing as with Lindsay's voice. Since the band's split, McFie has remained active, playing and touring with a number of musicians including Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Marianne Faithful, Hue and Cry, Carol Laula, and Hollow Horse.
In 2007 McFie contributed guitar to one track on the Button Up album 'No Dancin' On The Tables', which also featured contributions from Justin Currie, Joseph Malik, and Ken McCluskey. McFie also plays with Chris Glen and The Outfit, an evolving group of classic rockers from Glasgow.
