Sure, name checking a band as the West coast heir apparent to Big Star is a bold statement, brave in fact, but that’s exactly how I’ve been hailing The World Record of late. I didn’t catch the bands live act until late ’07, but their 2006 long player Guitars! Forever would have most likely made my best of 2006 list had I been hip to them at the time. Power-Pop enthusiasts take note, this LP is the sugar sweet from top to bottom.
Local: if you are an Angeleno, The World Record do gig around town – and it’s usually an event – as it ain’t often.
