Those Pretty Wrongs – “Lucky Guy”

Those Pretty Wrongs – “Lucky Guy”

Jody Stephens, the former drummer of Big Star, is the only founding member of that band who’s still alive. A few years ago, Stephens was asked to play some music at a few screenings of the documentary Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, and he asked Luther Russell, former frontman of the ’90s L.A. band the Freewheelers, to help him out. Stephens and Russell have now formed a new duo called Those Pretty Wrongs, and they’ve got a 7″ single coming out early next month. The A-side, “Lucky Guy,” is a heartbreaking jangly sigh of a song, a bittersweet acoustic meditation that sounds like a grown-up version of Big Star’s “13.” They recorded it in Memphis, using the same guitars that the late Big Star co-leader Chris Bell used when he made #1 Record and I Am The Cosmos. Listen to it below.

“Lucky Guy” b/w “Fool Of Myself” is out 6/2 on Burger Records.
