Big Wow is the second album by Scottish rock band Whiteout, released in 1998 (see 1998 in music). Andrew Jones and Stuart Smith—who were members of Whiteout when they started out in 1994—had left the band after the release of their first full-length album, Bite It, in 1995. The two remaining members, Paul Carroll and Eric Lindsay, continued as a three-piece with a new drummer who is only named "Fudge" in the album liner notes.
