CLASSIC ALBUM… #1 RECORD, BIG STAR

Alex Chilton and Chris Bell were the Memphis whiz kids at the heart of Big Star. They mixed British-pop finesse with all-American hard rock, from the surging “Feel” to the acoustic “Thirteen.” Big Star didn’t sell many records, but the Eighties explosion of poppy garage bands would’ve been unimaginable without them.

CLASSIC ALBUM… IN UTERO, NIRVANA

Nirvana hired hard-nosed Steve Albini to record the follow-up to Nevermind. Geffen asked them to clean up some of the results, and you can hear the tension in white-noise ruckus like “Serve the Servants.” But the only thing that can explain the scalding “Rape Me” is inner pain.

THIS DAY IN MUSIC…

July 10,1965, The Rolling Stones started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’, the group’s first chart-topper there. In the UK, the song was initially played only on pirate radio stations because its lyrics were considered too sexually suggestive.

CLASSIC ALBUM… SEA CHANGE, BECK

Breakup records are rarely this lovely. Sea Change is the pristine sound of everything falling apart, a glossy take on a bummed-out Sixties folk sound. The music seems to be floating up from the bottom of the ocean; the words were straight from Beck’s broken heart.

Mary J. Blige Addresses Burger King Ad Controversy…

Yesterday afternoon, Mary J. Blige addressed her contentious Burger King ad with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez. Blige apologized and described feeling hurt after the quickly-pulled ad created backlash online.

I went online to listen to the remix I did with Fat Joe and I’m looking for that. I’m looking for “Another Round,” and all I could see is Burger King, and chicken, and buffoonery…and it just broke my heart. I want to apologize to everyone that was offended or thought that I would do something so disrespectful to our culture. I would never do anything like that purposely, I thought I was doing something right so forgive me.

For more of Mary’s thoughts on the controversy, you can listen to the entire interview here. (via The Fader…)
