big star back?

Big Star is quintessential 1970s power pop. This summer, I listened to "September Gurls" more times than I can count and never grew tired of it.

REM, The Replacements, and Teenage Fanclub have all acknowledged their debt to the band, and countless others have suckled at the teat of #1 Record (1972), Radio City (1974), and Third/Sister Lovers (1978). It is through these groups that most of us have come to know and appreciate what could rightfully be called the band that helped launch both alternative rock and power pop.
Now, I understand that Big Star has re-formed and released a new album with a few good songs on it.
