Iggy Pop Takes 5 with some of his favourite punks…
Well, that was an absolute delight. Joining me in the studio this morning wasIggy Pop, one of the icons of modern music. He has innovated and inspired over the course of his near 50 year career, and is certainly not showing any signs of slowing down! Iggy & The Stooges have their new album “Ready To Die” due out in April, and the band is currently here in Australia playing a string of dates after a raved about performance at SXSW last week.
And could he have been any lovelier? I doubt it. He laughed and told stories as he walked us through five songs that, to him, share a real punk attitude. Artists that aren’t afraid to say ‘up yours!’ or tell it like it is. And he really took us on a ride, from his predecessors all the way through to the new breed of DIY punk scenes, this Take 5 is one you cannot miss.
Plus, the man’s got one of the best voices in the biz. Listen, if just for that.
