I love 'em.
Especially in the summer.
Any other fans? Whats your favourite songs?
is the best!
Kangaroo is one of my favourite songs ever.
Honorable mentions to The Ballad Of El Goodo and Way Out West, and the harmonies at the end of My Life Is Right = spine-tingling
Kangaroo or Holocaust. amazing band.
if you like them you HAVE to check out original member Chris Bell's I Am The Cosmos LP, cos its cosmically ace.
Better Save Yourself is better than anything he put his name to with Big Star. The album has a cool cover too
it is ace your right. I seen big star play at the LA2 (as it was then called) a few years ago and when they played 'I am the cosmos' it was actually really moving. It was the best gig i have ever seen as well.
It's quite beautifully crushing.
is amazing, it's basically the sound of Alex Chilton falling apart.
Is officially my all time favourite song.
Thirteen is my favourite ever song. The Wilco version is lovely stuff.
I Am The Cosmos is ace. And Kangaroo scares the shit out of me.
Well, except that new album they put out recently.
But September Gurls is great. And #1 Record is pretty much flawless.
I only have the first two albums, both are good though. Favourite songs probably Thirteen, The Ballad Of El Goodo, September Girls and Back Of A Car.
"Big Star", or Chilton and some sycophants, are playing Connect festival in Scotland. I love em and hope it i great but i have a bad feeling it will be awful
that a thread about Big Star has got more than 2 replies. They are / were so cool. Third is probably my favourite, but they're all good really. Favourite track has to be "Kangaroo". I may even go and listen to it now.
