documentário sobre o big star
já saiu o primeiro trailer do filme “nothing can hurt me: big star story”, que promete contar a história da banda e pelo visto se aprofundar também no contexto da indústria musical daquela época. se liga:
“The big star story” is seen as a cautionary tale of the growing corporatization in pop music in the 70’s as great American independent labels like Memphis-based STAX (Ardent’s distributor), were swallowed whole or marginalized by the music conglomerates. The group strived for stardom but fell victim to the corporate stranglehold of the major record labels and radio stations who dominated the music business at that time.
Eventually aligning under the term “Punk Rock,” the movement by the late 1970’s sought to topple corporate control over the music industry and remind the world what rock and roll is all about. It was the leaders of this movement—bands such as REM, The dB’s, The Replacements–and the passion of many frustrated music writers at such publications as Rolling Stone, Creem, and Musician Magazine who brought about Big Star’s resurrection and eventually defined the term “alternative music,” articulating a genre lying outside of the mainstream and brimming with the vitality and soul on which rock and roll was built.
tomara que seja bom mesmo, essa banda merece.
