11:06 Iggy & The Stooges: Raw Power
This radio special pays tribute to new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members, Iggy & the Stooges, and their 1973 album, Raw Power. Jon Langford (The Mekons, Waco Brothers) hosts this four part series on how this seminal album was made, and how it influenced future generations of punk rockers.
Includes interview clips from three Stooges - Iggy Pop, James Williamson and Sott Asheton and others influenced by them, between tracks like "Search and Destroy," "Gimme Danger" and others from the original album as well as previously unheard outtakes and live recordings.
Like the classic quote about the Velvet Underground, it didn’t sell many records at the time, but everyone who bought one started a band. We hear from three such people - Henry Rollins (Black Flag / Rollins Band), Mike Watt (Minutemen / Firehose) and Johnny Marr (Smiths / Modest Mouse / 7 Worlds Collide) , who each count this record as a major influence on their own legendary musical careers. Noted music photographer Mick Rock is also interviewed. (Joyride Media)
