“In The Street Hoodie”
- Artist Brian Walsby
Release # BFLD380
Limited to 150
I discovered Big Star and their “Number One Record’ from my very first girlfriend decades ago. Since then, I have loved all three Big Star records as well as the Chris Bell “I Am The Cosmos’ album. I can always listen to Big Star… anytime. Recently: while an tour with the Melvins, I had the opportunity to visit Ardent Studios (in Memphis) and meet Big Star drummer Jody Stephens. He gave us all a tour. I was prudent enough to give Jody one of my Melvins parodies. This one was of the band (Melvins) impersonating Big Star on their “Radio City’ album cover. That led to this: a rendering of the original band (Stephens, Bell, Andy Hummel and of course Alex Chilton) with the trademark star behind them. This drawing is based on a photograph taken by Michael O’Brien. Thanks to Michael, Addison at Ardent, and Jody for making this happen. Charles and I are very excited to have the honor of doing a Big Star Hoodie. We hope you like it as well. – Brian Walsby
