Big Star news:

Scarlett Johansson is covering “I Am The Cosmos” on her next record.

On the topic of Big Star, Bud Scoppa posted a never-published article from 2000 last week on his blog. It comes highly recommended – you’ll see that in the comments, Jody Stephens calls it “one of the best pieces [he’s] ever seen about the band.”

Here’s a snippet on the Posies:

Says Jody Stephens, who handpicked the Posies to fill in the holes for the reunited Big Star: “Frosting on the Beater does to me what all my favorite albums do: They surprise me with a sense of wonder much like the kids in ET must have felt when all their bikes took to the air.”
