Big Star # 2

Sorry for the long delay, I've been on holiday. From Buffalo, NY, a city I passed through on the megabus from NYC to Toronto three weeks ago, comes this fanzine dedicated to all thing (you guessed it!) powerpop. Features an Alex Chilton (RIP) interview and a review of the Scruffs demo (which I really need to hear).

  1. Alex looks very adorable in this photo.

    I listened to the album Third for the first time ever this week, and it kinda irritated me. It sounds like it coulda been made in 1993 or something. The song Thank You Friends is great, though.

  2. Hiya...I'm the former Mike Livewire whose profile of Wash DC Rock was included in BIG STAR 2. Unfortunately when dl'ing relaised that there's two pages missing from it. Any way to get a pdf scan of the missing pages?

    Otherwise dig the resource you're providing, though.

  3. Sorry about that, looks like the scanner didn't save it properly. Unfortunately, as they're not my fanzines I can't fix it.

  4. Can you re-post this one? thanks
