Like every band, The Big Nowhere recoil in horror when asked ' What do you sound like? The album has the feel of a kind of record that just doesn't get made any more.Think of albums by artists like The Band, The Replacements, Gene Clarke, Tom Waits - not afraid to use different styles of music, but still retain the essence of the band or the artist responsible.
' Pull Down The Moon' has as its centrepiece, three songs inter-linked by common theme - ' Johnny Walker Red', ' My Name Is Bob Willis' and ' Song For Suzannah'.Each of these songs tells the same story from the point of view of one of the three people involved.The three together is commonly known as the ' Hansen's Trailer Park Suite'.Songs of heartbreak, loss and regret - this is ' Pull Down The Moon' by The Big Nowhere.Understandably, many women are concerned about taking or starting medications during their pregnancy due to potential risk to their babies.Interestingly, research has shown that women with depression tend to have a greater liklihood of developing postpartum depression and they are more likely to have babies with lower birth weights.

A new study was published this week in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology which showed that acupuncture can help treat symptoms of depression in pregnant women.
In the study, depressed women were placed into three groups: Groups underwent 12 treatments over an eight-week period of time and were then asked to take the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression.
Results showed the severity of depression in the acupuncture specific group to be significantly lower than that in both of the control groups.
This was encouraging news since we are often asked at Pulling Down the Moon what holistic therapies might be available to patients who become depressed during pregnancy or what patients can do if they do not want to take their anti-depressants while TTC or pregnant.
