Those Pretty Wrongs, Memo Music Hall, 13th August 2023 by Mary Boukouvalas

The acclaimed new outfit for Jody Stephens, the sole surviving member of iconic early ’70s power pop legends Big Star, and the only man other than Alex Chilton to play on all three of their peerless original albums – have announced further details regarding their Australian shows.

The outfit, which is nominally a duo also featuring acclaimed singer songwriter and producer (and former bandmate of Jacob Dylan) Luther Russell, combine the lyrical and soulful harmony and jangle of both Big Star and classic ’90s alt-country with the sort of melancholy yet summery feeling that will touch anyone who has ever copped an earful of #1 Record, Radio City or Third/Sister Lovers.
