Iggy and the Stooges Premiere New Songs at SXSW 2013

Iggy Pop of Iggy and the Stooges performs at the Vans Music Showcase during the 2013 SXSW Music, March 13th, 2013 in Austin, Texas.

It hardly seemed fair that Iggy and the Stooges should perform so early last night at South by Southwest in Austin. All they left behind was a smoldering pile of rubble for the other acts to pick through at the House of Vans showcase at Mohawk.

That’s not to say the other big-name acts didn’t also deliver – both the Specials and Ghostface Killah brought plenty of their own heat. But Iggy Pop is a human blowtorch, and the Stooges have to run at a high temperature just to keep pace. They used the occasion to premiere songs from their forthcoming albumReady to Die, which is the band’s first LP to feature guitarist James Williamson since Raw Power in 1973.

Iggy Pop and The Stooges Rip Through Nine New Songs At SXSW

You wouldn’t know it. The band thundered through more than an hour of songs split between new tunes and Stooges classics, starting with a ferocious version of “Raw Power” that was full of serrated guitar and Iggy’s inimitable sneer, which has inspired punk rockers for nearly 45 years. He’s still a dynamo onstage, dancing and jumping around with abandon while James Williamson and bassist Mike Watt locked into one bludgeoning groove after another. Though Watt was a driving force behind the music, he looked at times as though he was in the passenger seat, clutching at the dash while drummer Toby Dammit steered a white-knuckle ride punctuated, sometimes forcefully, by saxophonist

The Stooges played the new song “Burn,” which Iggy said was about “scary shit like the flaming assholes of the world, and death.” They added to it a song that Pop said was an excellent example of why people like him shouldn’t have guns, followed by a tune that started slow and menacing before erupting into a punishing meditation (to the extent that “meditation” describes anything Iggy does) on the notion of payback.

Along with songs from Raw Power, the Stooges mined their back catalog on “1970,” with guitar and bass that pulsed together like a malevolent heartbeat, and, later in the set, the churning “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” After “Search and Destroy” and the title track from Ready to Die, the Stooges ended with “No Fun” before Iggy called them back for what appeared to be a spontaneous encore of “Fun House.”

Para los que están viendo “Pablo Escobar” en TV …

Este super clásico de Mano Negra ahora como que la letra cobra más sentido, si uno está viendo la serie Escobar: El Patrón del Mal “.

Manu Chao vivió en Colombia una época en los 90’s y llegó a dar un show para casi medio millón de personas.

Al morenito del video que la rompe bailando- niño de la calle – Intentó llevárselo a España / Francia ..las autoridades o algún familar no le dieron permiso.

Miren como Manu Chao ha crecido en el mundo a su manera, este cártel lo dice todo, él está con National Records y el año pasado ha vendido más de 100,000 discos solo en U.S.A, cifra nada mala para estas épocas de clonación y descarga .

Iggy And The Stooges – ‘Burn’

Iggy And The Stooges – 'Burn'

  • Release Date: April 30, 2013
  • Label: Fat Possum Records

Having stage-dived face-first off of Bill Hicks’ artistic roll-call with a bunch of insurance adverts featuring a rather different ‘little Iggy’ than we’re used to having slapped in our faces, it was gonna take something pretty special for Iggy Pop to claw back some creative kudos. Like, say, getting the ‘Raw Power’ line-up back together (bar the sadly-deceased Ron Asheton) for the first time since 1973.

Hence ‘Burn’, a rabble-rousing return to fiery (sorry) punk rock after Pop’s recent exploits in French-influenced jazz subtlety on 2009’s ‘Preliminaires’.

And it sets out not just to kick ass but to fire rocket-propelled grenades at ass from point blank range with the intention of scattering bloody chunks of ass across several miles’ radius.

Like The Stones with ‘Doom And Gloom’, ‘Burn’ is the sound of Pop acknowledging his peak period and cranking his pacemaker up to 11 to try to harness it again, with lyrics that wink knowingly at the ridiculousness of the whole idea. The sleeve shot of Iggy strapped up with a suicide bomb suggests he’s making an incisive comment about terrorism and warfare when he growls “respecter of duty is odious to me”, “Burn, burn, they’re taking over” and “there’s no God in this crowd” over a churning riff-storm resembling an exploding bus. But when he slips in lines like “I’m on file, with a reptile” and “Berlin-style!” he’s ramming his tongue into his cheek and fiddling about with his own myths as only the most astute rock’n’roll geriatrics can. The bomb.

Iggy and the Stooges have unveiled the initial coordinates of the Ready To Die live assault: On March 13 in Austin, Texas, Iggy and the Stooges will burn a swath through the annual SXSW Festival, with a one-off show at House of Vans at the Mohawk presented by Fat Possum. The Austin show will be the public’s first chance to hear any of Ready To Die played live–and U.S. fans’ last chance to see Iggy and the Stooges before they return to American stages this summer following a slew of overseas dates.

Iggy Pop sang this tune some time ago,  perhaps that was the beggining of the conversations for Iggy N The Stooges New Album on that label ” Ready To Dye”.

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.

Iggy Pop, Elton John y Rolling Stone Bill Wyman en 1975

Bill Wyman, Sir Elton John e Iggy Pop en 1975

En Enero de 1975 los Rolling Stones tocaron en el L A Forum de los Angeles. Elton John que estaba atrás de Iggy Pop y no por lo musical, se apareció en el backstage de los Stones con un Iggy totalmente loco y en portaligas.

Iggy estaba viviendo en el UCLA Mental Hospital y Elton gestionó la salida. Elton anunció a la prensa que firmaría a Iggy y los Stooges para su sello “Rocket 88”.


Por su parte David Bowie siempre de buenos reflejos fue a la clínica mental y se llevó a Iggy en la gira Station to Station y de ahí a vivir a Berlín en un mismo apartamento por un par de años : The Idiot, Lust For Life, Low, Heroes serían producto de esa convivencia en Alemania, casi nada ……

Bill Wyman como siempre está demás en la fotografía, de adorno diremos esta vez.
