those pretty wrongs

Jody Stephens, sole surviving member of iconic early '70s power pop legends Big Star, and latest song-writing partner Luther Russell are bringing their band Those Pretty Wrongs to Australia in August.

With a third album under their belt, Those Pretty Wrongs recall the soulful jangle of Big Star and ‘90s alt-country. Stephens’ presence will instil adoration among fans of his previous work. 

Stephens is the only man other than Alex Chilton to play on all three of Big Star’s peerless original albums. He was also a member of supergroup Golden Smog, alongside members of Wilco and the Jayhawks.



Luther Russell is an acclaimed singer/songwriter and producer (Richmond Fontaine amongst others) who formed his first band as a teenager with Jakob Dylan 

He has made a handful of solo records, having first come to attention as a member of The Freewheelers in the '90s, during which time his songs were described as having "the appeal and personality of those by Randy Newman and Harry Nilsson".
Those Pretty Wrongs are touring Australia on the back of their new album “Holiday Camp”, performing their own material as well as some classic Big Star.
