"Like Saint Joan, doing a cool jerk"

Alex Chilton soldiered on with Big Star after the departure of Chris Bell to produce Third (alt. title: Sister Lovers), a ragged, worn and frayed affair, that still retained some of the tenderness and pop sensibilities of the previous Big Star material. The tone and mood is alternatively drunken fun and pure Tragic Beauty... sullen, sad, despondent. Kangaroo (along with Blue Moon and Holocaust) are prime examples of the latter.   7
