Iggy Pop and The Stooges wrap up recording of ‘Ready To Die’ (nuevo disco )

Legendary punk band the Stooges have wrapped up their first album in five years. The ominously titled “Ready to Die” is the follow up to 2007’s “The Weirdness.”

I was at Los Angeles studio Village Recorders last night and ran into Ed Cherney, who had just finished mixing the new album in his studio. He previously worked with Stooges leader Iggy Pop on his gold-certified album, 1990’s “Brick By Brick.”

When asked how hard the album rocked, Cherney said, “It’s old-time Stooges. It’s raw. They’re great songs, but not necessarily big choruses. They’re the anti-christ of anthems.”  We’re not sure what the last part means, but it sure sounds good.

Iggy Pop’s lyrics are “very timely,” Cherney says. “He knows what he wants to say.  He’s watching the world around him.” Evidently so: among the song titles are “I Got A Job But It Don’t Pay Shit,” and “Gun.”

Stooges guitar player James WIlliamson produced the album at Fantasy Studios in San Francisco (Iggy worked out of a Miami studio on the vocals). It marks the first Stooges album Williamson has played on since 1973’s “Raw Power.” He rejoined the group following guitarist Ron Asheton’s death in 2009. Asheton’s brother, Scott, plays drums on the album. It also features bassist Mike Watt, who’s played with the Stooges since 2003.

No word yet on a release date, but Iggy Pop is featuring on “Son of Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys,” performing “Assholes Ruin the Navy” with Albuquerque duo A Hawk and A Hacksaw.” The collection, produced by Hal Willner, comes out Feb. 19.

Un pensamiento en “Iggy Pop and The Stooges wrap up recording of ‘Ready To Die’ (nuevo disco )

  1. Unquestionably believe that that you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be at
    the internet the simplest thing to understand of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while other people think about concerns that
    they plainly do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the
    nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing without having side
    effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to
    get more. Thank you
