Donald was there and told me that Iggy dedicated "Fun House" to James Brown.
Apparently it was another excellent gig.
Cheers,
Richard

Thanks for these - looks as good as Hammersmith. Wonder if Matt Groening will get them on the Simpsons?

Thanks JW82. Even with the sound interference around the audio recorder in the audience, this Open Up And Bleed appears to be one of the best vocal deliveries the singer has ever attained. (And the all feedback ending or faux ending still works great as set denouement.)

This song retains so much history not only with its creators but with its audience who remember the first go round. Whereas once the repeated guitar riff really seemed to echo the relentlessness of life's adversities beating one down, now it all really celebrates its implied triumph over same, close to the level that Paul Robeson transformed Ol' Man River (with its terrifying-for-a-classic lyrics of "I'm tired of living and scared of dying") into, dare I say, life affirmation.

Once black and blue moods compelled me to play this song over and over in darkened rooms until I worked up the gall to go find someone to tell me lies. Now it yells out total vindication. So classic, so timeless. If ever there were an argument FOR bootlegs, it was this song's existence on same. (I can't imagine the mindset of business types that would have turned down this song, even with its original howling pain.) God I hope this is on the purported redo of The Stooges' lost '72-'74 classics and that everyone involved stays healthy enough to record and complete same.

You're spot on, Perdu. Totally agree with you!

So they didn't play anything "new" ? We're back on tracks, the set won't change for the next three years.
I kinda hoped to hear something different in july.

Perdu -

I totally agree. For me, I consider Open Up & Bleed to be one of the Stooges best compositions (Gimme Danger being the other). One of the thigns that I feel is really missing from the recent performaces of this song is Scotty Thurston's harmonica and shouted background vocals. I really hope they re-record this one too.

Nothing different at Minehead. Set in a different order and a couple of Raw Power songs dropped. Crowd not as into it as the Hammersmith gigs but I am reliably informed it was "mental down the front". I was further back taking it all in. The whole band were great. Iggy invited some photographer up on stage while the snare drum was mended after the second (I think) number. He hung around for the next number and kept moving Iggy's mike stand, which was then moved back by a roadie. Particular highlights were Fun House ("Good God"), Open Up And Bleed and Death Trip. Excellent gig obviously.

Good analysis. This song played live always makes me feel thrills.
