THOSE PRETTY WRONGS: Lucky Guy: 7”

Jan 13, 2016

Admittedly, I had no idea what this 45 was all about. Details slowly stood out—namely Ardent Studios—that led me to my “Holy SHIT, this is the drummer from Big Star” moment. Turns out Jody Stephens teamed up with Luther Russell of The Freewheels to make this delightfully sweet A/B single. “Fool of Myself” is a mid-tempo rocker that stands well on its own, but the title track is the real winner here: a pleasant ballad that’s catchy, upbeat, and far from sad. Maybe even channeling Chris Bell more than Alex Chilton. This record was a nice surprise (with hopefully more to come).
