Three decades after their conception, break up and death of original band member Chris Bell, the improbable has happened. A very limited number of live appearances by founding members Jody Stephens and Alex Chilton, alongside Posies co-founders Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow, led to the revitalized Big Star recording a dozen newly-written songs at Memphis' Ardent Studios. This is also where the group cut the hugely influential #1 Record, Radio City and Third/Sister Lovers albums which the enigmatic Chilton would later all but dismiss, rendering his decision to make another Big Star LP all the more intriguing.
"The difference between this Big Star record and previous records is that this time we know people will at least hear it," says co-founder and drummer Jody Stephens about In Space, the storied band's first all-new album since Third/Sister Lovers was recorded in 1975.
