Big Star ‘Third’ deluxe box set coming in October — listen to “Like St. Joan (Kanga Roo)” demo
That...is more bonus content than I think I want. Haha
cool how there hasn’t been a post for one of the best bands ever in two years
I can't even count how many times in the average week I hum "Ain't no one goin' to turn me around".
I love The Replacements and so I am aware of Alex Chilton, but I don't know where to start with Big Star
they have 3 albums lol
But which one?!??!?!?!?!
l.... the first lol
So what is everyone's favorite Big Star song?
life is white is one of my five or ten favorite songs ever
Could post a dozen or so but this has always been my favorite
Listen to all three. Radio City is my favorite, and one of the best records ever made.
And watch Nothing Can Hurt Me.
I love I Am the Cosmos but have never delved into Chilton's solo stuff. Anyone have an album rec?
like flies on sherbert!
Thanks. I've heard his stuff is a mess, but depends on the listener whether it's a beautiful mess or a wasteful one. Which I could be down for.
