“My idea of fun / Is killing everyone” :: This just in, Iggy Pop still angry after 33 years

Iggy Pop is releasing his first new CD with The Stooges in 33 years, and he clearly still has a bone to pick with you. Take a listen to the aggressive new track (we would expect nothing less):

Idea of Fun – The Stooges

The new Stooges album The Weirdness is slated for March 6, and it’s got 12 tracks with picturesque titles such as “Greedy Awful People,” “End of Christianity,” and “Mexican Guy.”

My bass hero Mike Watt joins all the other original members, as he’s been doing with the Stooges since 2003 (great pic here), and holds down the low notes on the album in relentless form. Sounds good to me.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
