Star Power

After a week of Soul searching, it’s time for something with a bit of bite, so with no further ado I present you with this week’s genre: Power Pop. Representing Power Pop are Big Star, who are the first artists on the Music Tree that I have never heard of before. Big Star had a three-year run in the seventies, and although they never achieved commercial success they have since been cited as a huge influence on several bands and genres that followed. Dave and I will be listening to Big Star’s ambitiously titled debut album, #1 Record until Sunday.

Big Star - #1 Record

Big Star - #1 Record

Each week Fran and Dave explore a new genre from the Music Tree by choosing an album to represent it. We write about the genre or artist during the week, and post our reviews on Sunday. Want to join the musical adventure?
