Big Star’s Jody Stephens & Freewheelers’ Luther Russell Form Band; Listen to Stream


Pristine pop supreme!

By Fred Mills

It’s titled “Lucky Guy” and it’s the A-side of a new single from Burger by new outfit Those Pretty Wrongs. Haven’t heard of ’em? Maybe you’ve heard of the musicians: Jody Stephens from Big Star, and Luther Russell of the Freewheelers. The label has posted a stream of the song, which will be out on 7″ June 2 with the B-side “Fool of Myself.” Check it out:

Burger indicates that the tracks were cut at Ardent in Memphis (no surprise there, since Stephens works at the studios) and among the instruments played were Stephen’s Big Star drums and guitars once used by the late Chris Bell of Big Star. Stephens and Russell originally hooked up when they performed Big Star songs at screenings of the Nothing Can Hurt Me documentary about the band. Here’s hoping an album will follow.
