THOSE PRETTY WRONGS - Time To Fly / A Day At The Park 7"
* ONE COPY WITH SLIGHT WATER DAMAGE TO SLEEVE ONLY *
TPW are Jody Stephens and Luther Russell, old friends and veterans of the music scene in different ways. Jody was the drummer for the legendary band Big Star and now helps run equally legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis. Luther Russell was the leader of seminal roots-rock band The Freewheelers and is now an acclaimed solo artist and producer.
Regarding the sparkling acoustic A-side, Jody says: “‘Time To Fly’ is about setting yourself free to find that promise for the future… not putting the anything off.” As for the sun-dappled flipside, Jody has vivid memory of it’s creation: “Luther and I played the Wood Festival in Oxfordshire, UK. The setting was Brazier Park. Kids running around like escaped kites. We started writing ‘A Day In The Park’ there while were staying in Ian Fleming’s childhood home on the grounds of the park.”
On the new recordings, Jody and Luther are emboldened by playing together for the past five years, and it shows. There is a tightening of the chemistry and a true crystallisation of the sound they have created together: always melodic, warm and full of bittersweet harmony.
