Thank You, Friends - Big Star's "Third" Live… And More

Jump to “More items of this artist”

(Rock/Pop) 2017 Concord Bicycle - allumfassendes Wahnsinnsprojekt einer eingeschworenen Gruppe von erklärten Big Star-Maniacs und -Nachlassverwaltern der für die gesamte weitere US-Indie Pop/Rock-Geschichte so wichtigen, aber nur kurzlebigen Kultband aus Memphis. Zur Erinnerung: Classic Big Star kreierten Anfang der 70er die Power Pop/Guitar Rock-Alben 'No.1 Record' und 'Radio City', bevor die zum Duo (plus eine Fülle von Studiomusikern) geschrumpfte Band von Mastermind Alex Chilton & Drummer Jody Stephens 74-75 ihr damals völlig untrendiges, schräges und unverständliches, für spätere Generationen aber wegweisendes Düsterwerk 'Third' (aka 'Sister Lovers') einspielte. Unter der Leitung von Chris Stamey (dB's) als Musical Director hat sich am 27.04.2016 im Alex Theatre in Glendale, Kalifornien ein wahres Who's Who von bekannten und erfolgreichen Indie-Musikern zu einem irren Big Band-Orchester zusammengefunden, um den alten Songs zu huldigen, von denen nicht wenige (damals übrigens praktisch unverkäuflich) über die Dekaden zu wahren Hits mutiert sind! 'In The Street', 'Back Of A Car', 'September Gurls', 'I'm In Love With A Girl', 'The Ballad Of El Goodo', 'Thirteen', 'I Am The Cosmos' usw. plus die Stücke der 'Third'-LP mit Schwergut wie 'Nightime', 'Jesus Christ', 'Kanga Roo', 'Holocaust', 'Big Black Car' etc. Zur festen Tribute Band gehörten neben Stamey und Musikern aus seinem North Carolina-Umfeld Pat Sansone (Wilco, Autumn Defense), Mitch Easter (Let's Active), Django Haskins (Old Ceremony), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Ken Stringfellow (Posies), Skylar Gudasz, Brett Harris und… der letzte Big Star-Überlebende Jody Stephens an den Drums und z.T. als Sänger. Weitere einschlägig verdächtige "featured artists" sind Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo), Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Jon Auer (Posies), Robyn Hitchcock, Luther Russell, Benmont Tench (Heartbreakers), Blake Mills, Dan Wilson (Semisonic) und Jessica Pratt. Für die Orchestrierung mit dem Kronos Quartet und einer Bläsersection um Ralph Carney konnte - wie bereits auf den Originalsessions - der bekannte Carl Marsh gewonnen werden. Das Konzert ist komplett auf den beiden CDs (90 Minuten) sowie auf der DVD - hier dann noch stilvoll angereichert mit Interviewsequenzen und Einblicken in die Historie und Bedeutung von Big Star zu einem richtigen Documentary Movie über 2 Stunden. Tolles Booklet dazu!


Two CD + DVD edition. Thank You Friends: Big Star's Third Live... and more celebrates the musical legacy of one of rock's most influential bands - Big Star - and their legendary Third album. Experience this classic of late '70s power pop through the prism of a collective of immensely talented fans, including members of Wilco, R.E.M., Yo La Tengo, and, of course, Big Star. Following the untimely death of Alex Chilton two days ahead of Big Star's SXSW performance in 2010, famous friends and fans came from far and wide to play the gig in his honor. Much of that spontaneous ensemble, along with other musical titans, assembled at Glendale, CA's Alex Theatre in April 2016 to record and film an epic performance. While the band may not be Big Star per se, the fabled group's sole surviving original member, Jody Stephens, heads an amazing cast, whose membership includes latter-day Big Star alumni Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer of the Posies, R.E.M's Mike Mills, Let's Active's Mitch Easter, Chris Stamey of the dB's, and others. Jeff Tweedy and Pat Sansone of Wilco, Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo, Robyn Hitchcock, Dan Wilson of Semisonic, Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Jessica Pratt, Brett Harris, Django Haskins, and Skylar Gudasz are among the guests who were joined by a full chamber orchestra helmed by the Kronos Quartet, performing scores created directly from the original multi-track tapes from Ardent Studios for this event. Carl Marsh, who wrote the original orchestrations, conducted.
