Those Pretty Wrongs is Jody Stephens, the former drummer of Big Star and Luther Russell, former frontman of the ’90s L.A. band The Freewheelers. Their beautiful union started when Jody was asked to sings a few songs for a screening of the ‘Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me’ documentary. He called Luther to ask him to join on guitar and he did. After soundcheck sitting in a car out in the parking lot Luther asked Jody about writing songs together. Musical ideas went back and forth - lyrics and melody lines were left as voicemails by Jody to which Luther added guitar, piano, additional melodies and more lyrics. The two became partners and after they’d written about nine songs and played their first gig knew this would be a good time. Hell, they even play Thirteen in the set.
Those Pretty Wrongs play the Gasometer on Thursday 24th March with special guests Two Am I (Tim Rogers & Davey Lane).
