Big Star

  1. This band really needs an appreciation thread. In fact, Alex Chilton needs an appreciation thread. Because even though he was incrediably influential, particularly with Big Star, no one seems to know who he is or they just refuse to talk about his music. But if you dont know his stuff, here are a few songs:

    [ame=]Big Star - Blue Moon - YouTube[/ame]
    [ame=]Big Star-I'm in Love with a Girl - YouTube[/ame]

    Big Star was practically my whole High School experience. A fucking genius band! Talk about them! NOW!
  2. prefer the box tops

  3. No way. The Box Tops were good, but what Alex did with Big Star was so much more exciting and new. They pretty much laid the ground for Indie Rock. Also, Soul Deep is a better song than The Letter
