Hat tip to Brian Scott Gross, publicist extraordinaire, for having this one pop up on his Twitter feed, which brought it back to my attention.
The Posies are my third favorite Big Star-influenced band (the first two should be painfully obvious to anyone who knows me, but feel free to ask/guess by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Because everyone in the 90s were lumped into the grunge thing, their sweet melodies were amped up, their hair was lengthened and they were turned into the visual you see above. Thankfully it doesn't take anything away from the underlying awesomeness of the song. This is what power pop is, was and still should be.
