What happens when the surviving member of a legendary American
power pop band and a Los Angeles musician whose lineage includes
two giants of the Great American Songbook, both steeped in Beatles,
get together to make music? The result is now two albums deep in a
band called Those Pretty Lies. Jody Stephens, formerly of Big Star
and Golden Smog is a singer/songwriter/drummer and Luther Russell
is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer, formerly of
The Freewheelers. Their latest release as Those Pretty Wrongs, Zed
For Zulu, has just been released.
Their insights into making music and what they gleaned from The Beatles makes for a fascinating discussion.
