Iggy Pop: Roadkill Rising: The Bootleg Collection 1977-2009
What can I say about Iggy that you don’t already know? This collection of bootlegs is like a time machine for your ears and imagination. It gives you full access to the circus that is an Iggy Pop concert. If you’re like me and have heard his studio songs so many times that you can hum his tunes and imagine every single note, drumbeat, lyric and breath he takes all at the same time, then this album will be a new experience for you. These songs are, for the most part, extended, epic versions that are sure to stimulate your senses. Iggy is not only a forceful energetic frontman but also a very controlling conductor. Even in the studio we hear him, “bring it down!” and “anytime, James!” On the stage it’s “turn on the house lights!” and “f*** the bouncers get up here!” So if you have missed out on these live experiences in the past, here is your chance to do some catching up.
