Making a Case for the Most Underappreciated Band in Pop Music
Unsung cult heroes. Quintessential power pop icons. Rock and roll underachievers. Big Star were all of these things, yet in the grand scheme of popular culture, they remain all but unknown except in the most esoteric circles of music snobbery, despite the shadow they’ve cast over the alternative rock scene of the past three decades.
There was a much better piece on Big STar in last month's MOJO, actually.
On the other hand, you really can't say too much about them, so the popmatters thing doesn't bother me particularly.
