Infinity Broadcasting Targets Media Buyers and Planners in B2B Campaign

Infinity Broadcasting launched a multimedia business-to-business campaign designed to emphasize the power of Infinity radio with a series of ads launching in national advertising and media trade publications. "How Far Will You Go?" will target the creative community, and media planners and buyers, and was developed by The VIA Group. The campaign recognizes artists and marketing executives such as music icons Iggy Pop and Bob Marley-and features testimonials from DaimlerChrylser executives to communicate how agencies and clients can realize the full potential of a new idea with radio. One ad states, "At Infinity Broadcasting, we're taking the world's most relevant free media to places most have never dreamed. Think big, and go bigger. Take your ideas to Infinity." In addition to print, the campaign will include radio, outdoor, direct mail, and online components.

Sunday Nights: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough released. 2 versions of "You Better Run" by the Stooges, also one by Whitey Kirst.


David Hockney, one of the most popular and influential living artists, takes a keen interest in how his own work has been presented in the hundreds of exhibitions and dozens of books that have documented his 45-year career. And now he has put on a new hat - that of curator - in an exhibition of photographs by the late Robert Mapplethorpe at the Alison Jacques Gallery in London.

Iggy & The Stooges live @ TheYellow Party, Melpignano (Lecce) June 17th 2005

Superfan and author Giancarlo De Chirico's ExtraMusic.it review of the Yellow Party show:

After Yumi Yumi’s electro-punk from Japan and Mando Diao’s energetic pop-rock from Sweden, Iggy & The Stooges get on the stage at 11:00 p.m. and immediately let their music do the talking! The well-known ravaging beats from “Loose” and “Down On The Street” knock down the audience, Iggy is screaming louder than ever and everybody is down in flames! “Fuck Everything!” that’s what he says, that’s his political belief, we don’t need anything else! A warm and delicate summer evening in Southern Italy becomes a sort of Hell’s Kitchen and madness rules in the front rows! The guitar-riff of “1969” turns the psychedelic fury of the late sixties into something modern and when it comes to “ I Want To Be Your Dog” , Iggy starts his tribal dancing! He is 58, but he is still in a very good shape: he gets down on his hands and knees, he barks, he shakes his hips and he bites just like a real dog! “Italia, I need you!” and a deadly version of “T.v. Eye” follows. Ron Asheton does his duty on electric guitar, silent and solitary as we know him, while his brother Scott “Rock Action” Asheton on drums and a tireless Mike Watt on bass support him with a show of power that has got no equal. Later on the Man from Detroit opens himself up to the audience a little bit: “Sometimes people can get so mean” he says “ that’s why I wrote this song” and the heavy blues approach of “Dirt” takes its toll, ultimative and sad as we remember it. “Real Cool Time” and “No Fun”, two classic tracks from the early era of the Psychedelic Stooges, drag everybody in a wild and crazy dance. It’s an outburst of rhythm, percussions and strained guitars that keep fighting against the real enemy, which is Boredom and its close friend Frustration! And tonite we are gonna win, that’s why some kids get on the stage, join Iggy, dance and sing along with him! It’s a cathartic moment, it’s purifying, it’s when all the shit comes out of ourselves and turns into a positive power, it’s the medicine the National Health Service will never pass , it’s the reason why we came! There is never a dull moment, Yumi Yumi do a kind of pogo dancing in the backstage, while Vic Thrill, the M.C. of the party, is completely drunk with happiness. The astonishing notes of “1970” - better known (and covered) as “I Feel Alright” - underlines the entrance of another original Stooges, Steve Mackay, whose tenor sax melts down with Iggy’s screams until they pour out a sound so rare to the point of being unique. Soon we got the feeling that this Stooges’ reunion is a matter of integrity, they are loyal to their roots, to that “free-jazz” approach belonging to Sun Ra and John Coltrane, mixed with some old Chicago blues. All this fortunate chemistry brought about compositions like “Funhouse” and “L.A. Blues” too, in fact Iggy & The Stooges play these numbers immediately after. More recent songs follow, the obsessive refrain of “Skull Ring” and “Dead Rock Star”, about that taste of compromise which dwells in nowaday music scene. Another sketch from the past, “Little Doll” who always gives us a thrill, followed by “Not Right” and “Electric Chair”, with the guitar-work of Ron Asheton at his best. A second version of “I Want To Be Your Dog” - enhanced by the sax of Mackay - puts an end to this faboulous gig in the land of the “tarantula-men” who for the very first time met an original american wolf spider, named Iggy!!!!

RHINO REVIVES TWO OF THE THREE STOOGES

Deluxe Editions of The Stooges and Fun House Featuring Rarities and Unreleased Tracks Available From
Rhino
August 16


LOS ANGELES—The Stooges’ provocative mix of aggressive nihilism and primal rhythms scared the hell out of America when the Detroit quartet—led by the legendary Iggy Pop—careened onto the music scene in 1969. The few brave souls who didn’t flee in terror from the sound were lucky witnesses to the dawning of punk rock. Rhino Records pays tribute to the band with deluxe editions of the proto-punk trailblazer’s THE STOOGES and the group’s classic follow-up, FUN HOUSE.

Each expanded and remastered two-disc set includes the original album along with a bonus disc filled with rarities and unissued tracks. Both sets are available August 16 at regular retail outlets and at www.rhino.com for a suggested list price of $19.98.

The Stooges—vocalist Iggy Pop (then known as Iggy Stooge); bassist Dave Alexander; guitarist Ron Asheton and his brother Scott on drums—helped spark a music revolution with the band’s raging music and unpredictable shows. Pop provided a mesmerizing focal point with his apocalyptic lyrics, sneering delivery and confrontational performances. Drenched in overdriven fuzztone and wah-wah, Ron Asheton’s unhinged solos added a menacing attitude, while Alexander and Scott Asheton joined together to create a relentless battering ram of rhythm.

The band’s self-titled, John Cale-produced 1969 debut features the classics “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “1969” and “Real Cool Time.” The bonus disc is filled with ten previously unissued tracks including Cale’s original mixes of “Little Doll,” “1969,” “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “No Fun,” three alternate vocal takes including “Not Right,” plus the full version of “No Fun.”

The band returned a year later with FUN HOUSE, which better captured The Stooges’ fierce energy as a live band and boasted stronger songs. Despite being virtually ignored upon its release, the album went on to become an underground classic powered by the unbridled energy of “Loose,” “1970” and “L.A Blues.” The bonus disc includes more than an hour of rarities only available on the long out-of-print 1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions from Rhino Handmade. The bonus disc includes demos of “Lost In The Future” and “Slide (Slidin’ The Blues)” (two songs that did not appear on the original album), different takes of “T.V. Eye,” “Loose,” and “Down On The Street” along with bonus single mixes for “Down On The Street” and “1970.”

Both releases feature lavish booklets including rare photos, extensive liner notes and introductions penned by two Detroit rock legends. Ben Edmonds provides the liner notes for THE STOOGES with an introduction from Alice Cooper, while Paul Trynka contributes the liners for FUN HOUSE and Jack White (The White Stripes) provides the introduction. “Fun House is to me the very definition of Detroit rock ’n’ roll,” White notes. “A milestone in rock ’n’ roll so overlooked it’s despicable.”

The show lasted 65mns, all the band having fun and in
very good shape, sadly security was bad, and in "Real
Cool Time" they did not allow people to get on stage,
Iggy shouted and screamed against security even
calling them "You fucking nazi pricks" but to no
avail, only about 5 people managed to get on stage
with Iggy, Iggy raged against TV as well, almost
knocking down a MTV Portugal camera that was filming
the show. Overall a very good show. I'm now looking
forward to the Effervessones festival!

Iggy Pop, actor: "Wayne County Ramblin'"

05.12.05:The Stooges will start doing album themed shows, performing an Stooges' entire album during each show, like the Funhouse show in London. Also the venues will be using "The Stooges" in the billing, not "Iggy and the Stooges." Look for tickets for these shows under "The Stooges."

Virgin-EMI release: "A Million in Prizes." From Billboard:

Pop Gathers 'Prizes,' Preps Live DVD.


Iggy Pop will be the subject of a career-spanning retrospective and a live DVD this summer. Due July 19 via Virgin/EMI Music Catalog Marketing, the 37-track "A Million in Prizes: The Iggy Pop Anthology" runs the gamut from Stooges classics to material from Pop's 2003 album "Skull Ring." The DVD "Live From the Avenue B" was shot in Belgium in 1999 during Pop's tour in support of the album of the same name.

The first 10 tracks on disc one of "Prizes" are from Pop's days fronting the Stooges, including "No Fun," "Search and Destroy" and "Raw Power." The disc is rounded out by highlights from albums like "The Idiot" and "Lust for Life," including "Sister Midnight" and "The Passenger."

Disc two boasts favorites such as "Real Wild Child (Wild One)," live versions of "TV Eye" and "Loose" taped at Ireland's Feile Festival in August 1993, the No. 2 Modern Rock chart hit "Home" and Pop's lone entry on the Billboard Hot 100, "Candy" with the B-52's Kate Pierson. That cut reached No. 28 in 1990.

"Live From the Avenue B" sports 21 tracks such as "Cold Metal," "Death Trip," "Nazi Girlfriend" and "Louie Louie," plus the requisite round of Stooges songs.

Pop has a handful of summer festival dates on tap, beginning May 27 at Barcelona's Primavera Festival.

Here is the track list for "A Million in Prizes":

Disc one:
"1969"
"No Fun"
"I Wanna Be Your Dog"
"Down on the Street"
"I Got a Right"
"Gimme Some Skin"
"Search and Destroy"
"Gimme Danger"

New Stooges release from Jungle Records.

Press Release 15 April 2005

IGGY & THE STOOGES to release re-union live album!

Iggy & the Stooges release ‘Telluric Chaos’ live album 30 years after ‘Metallic KO’, the infamous “last-ever” Stooges gig album (Skydog/Jungle).

Iggy & the Stooges reunited in 2004, almost 30 years after a notorious, riotous final gig where they got bottled on stage while Iggy traded insults with a biker gang. That live show was famously documented on the 1976 album ‘Metallic KO’ on Skydog Records, issued just as punk was breaking out, cementing Iggy’s ‘Godfather Of Punk’ reputation.

Now, Iggy releases a live album of the reunited Stooges, fittingly on Skydog Records (thru Jungle). ‘Telluric Chaos’ is recorded in Tokyo on March 24th 2004, and features The Stooges still in electrifying form, playing many of their classics plus some new Stooges numbers from the ‘Skull Ring’ album and the world premiere of a brand new Stooges number, ‘My Idea Of Fun’. Coinciding with the release, Iggy plays European festivals in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Belgium and the UK.

The album heralds a new phase in the pioneering French Skydog label’s history. Starting out in 1972, with a catalogue boasting MC5, New York Dolls, Flamin’ Groovies and more recently Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, now alongside the Stooges album are releases by Portuguese rock sensation ‘Wraygunn’ and exotic Japanese girl punk band ‘54 Nude Honeys’. Skydog releases are available through Jungle.

Track-list: Loose, Down On The Street, 1969, I Wanna Be Your Dog, TV Eyes, Dirt, Real Cool Time, No Fun, 1970, Fun House, Skull Ring, Dead Rock Star, Electric Chair, Little Doll, My Idea Of Fun, I Wanna Be Your Dog, Not Right. Live 22 March 2004 at Shibuya Ax, Tokyo.
Band: Ron Asheton guitars; Scott Asheton drums; Mike Watt bass; Steven MacKay sax; Iggy Pop vocals.

Bo Diddley
by Iggy Pop

Bo Diddley's music is enormous. It's deeply moving. It has the sultry, sexual power of Africa. There's all sorts of mystery in that sound. People listen to the Diddley recordings and think, "Oh, you can just go bonk-de-bonk-bonk, de bonk-bonk, and you got a Bo Diddley beat." But it isn't that easy. He wrote really simple things but with incredible authority. I first heard him on a Rolling Stones album on their cover of "Mona." It was such a great song. I looked at the credits and it said "Elias McDaniel" and I thought, "Who the hell is that?" But when I wanted to get into songwriting, he was the key for me. I didn't have a lot of vocal range, and i didn't know a lot of chords on the guitar. So I was looking for a way to write, and there he was, writing very complete, very memorable songs without a lot of fuss. They weren't florid. He never bothered to change the cord, for one thing - which is very heavy-metal! Its hypnotic. And, of course, there's the attitude, the chin-up, chest-out sort of thing. He was a bull; he had a bullish quality. Vocally he reminds me of gut-bucket Delta blues; Muddy Waters, but brought to town, rocked up. And his voice is so damned loud. It's just a huge voice, and he's got a big, deep shout.

Then there's the way he played the guitar. First of all, Bo's hands are about a foot long from the wrist to the tip of the finger. He really controls the guitar. Bo plays his instrument, and the way the rhythm clicks is unique. What seems to pass for guitar more and more now is some wimp with a fuzz box. Somewhere around Hendrix, the line was crossed. Hendrix had both. He had the hands and the fuzz box. Now all they have is the fuzz box - a lot of them.

Bo Diddley had a huge impact on Sixties rock. The Stones covered Bo Diddley, and the Yardbirds did "I'm a Man," and the Pretty Things did "Pretty Thing." My band in highschool, the Iguanas, did a few of his songs, including "Road Runner," and you can hear a bit of him in the Stooges. You can be damned well sure that Jack White has studied Bo's records.

I've had a little personal experience with Bo. I worked with him in Vegas once, and I kept running into him on airplanes in the Eighties and the Nineties - always first class, always alone, always with a roll bag, his police hat and a sherriff"s badge. I think Bo and Chuck Berry have suffered the trivialization of people who are covered too much. Their influence is everywhere, but their personal careers could use a boost. Some car or jeans company needs to put a track of his in a commercial so a lot of young dudes and dudettes can go "Whoa - that's rocking!"

Live At Luna Park (2.13.61)

Henry Rollins in recent years has gotten as much attention for acting as for his powerful and confrontational musical performances in appearances with Black Flag and the Rollins Band. But this disc focuses on his abilities in the arena of the spoken word. It condenses the highlights from two months of appearances Rollins made at the Luna Park nightclub in March and April 1999. This set includes his feelings about art, politics, the music business and his contemporaries. The main feature runs 76 minutes, and the bonus segment is a 20-minute combination diatribe/extrapolation titled "Rollins Vs. Iggy Pop."

Henry Rollins talks Iggy:
Live At Luna Park (2.13.61)

Henry Rollins in recent years has gotten as much attention for acting as for his powerful and confrontational musical performances in appearances with Black Flag and the Rollins Band. But this disc focuses on his abilities in the arena of the spoken word. It condenses the highlights from two months of appearances Rollins made at the Luna Park nightclub in March and April 1999. This set includes his feelings about art, politics, the music business and his contemporaries. The main feature runs 76 minutes, and the bonus segment is a 20-minute combination diatribe/extrapolation titled "Rollins Vs. Iggy Pop."

Philly Storyteller show playback (local Philly FM only) and pix.

A few pix from Cincinnatti area gig.

Have a great weekend all :-)
