This is the best rock & roll news of the day…. Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age ) recorded a secret record with Iggy Pop! One of my favourite modern rockers teaming up with an absolute legend of alternative music. Outstanding. The New York Times has a great story on the marriage.
The new songs are from “Post Pop Depression” (Loma Vista), an album Mr. Pop and Mr. Homme wrote and recorded together with utmost secrecy and full independence, which is scheduled to be released in March. Its music shows both songwriters’ clear fingerprints: the pithy, hard-nosed clarity of Mr. Pop’s lyrics and the unflinching tone of his voice; and the crispness, angularity and deft convolutions of Mr. Homme’s chords and melodies. (The group will be making its debut on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” Thursday night.) – NY Times
The Stooges 1969 debut album is essential listening.
Remember that scene in the movie Friday Night Lights…. The Panthers are in the final and rally hard in the second half? That montage is to The Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”
