Every month Mojo Magazine chooses a band or artist and does a Top 10 'How to buy' article.

Next month's is 'Top 10 LP's by Iggy Pop and Iggy & the Stooges'

They welcome reader contributions and comments to

www.mojo4music.com or email to mojo@bauermedia.co.uk with subject "How to buy Iggy" - best comments will be printed.


I know everyone on the forum has an opinion on this and now's your chance to maybe get it in print!!

My comment would be 'pay a proper journalist to write your article!'

I don't want to read a bunch of amateur opinions... we can do that online all day long.

It's ok to organise a simple poll and publish the results, but it's cheapskate and boring to solicit unpaid copy for publication. Who needs professional writers anymore when you can get your (sub-standard) copy for free? Evil or Very Mad

In any case the whole idea of a top ten league table of 'Iggy Pop and Iggy & The Stooges' LPs is flawed. It reduces The Stooges to equal status with any of Iggy's various other backing bands.

Chill out Woody.

I think you've misunderstood this a little.

This is a regular feature that this mag writes itself. I think they just think its cool for fans to express their passion for certain artists work - in a couple lines.

Haha yeah I admit to a momentary lapse of chill. Laughing

Maybe Mojo is better than it sounds and uses readers' comments creatively without simply reprinting them verbatim. No sweat.

BUT I still don't think the two Stooges albums should be categorised with Iggy's solo records.

It's also true that there are more important things to worry about. Wink

At the ends the day...

Imagine that, MOJO putting a Smith, Stone, or Beatle on the cover!

Aside from that bit of sarcasm, it's by far the best music mag around.

Ha Ha! So true MJG. I actually recently cancelled my subscription because I couldn't take the constant Beatles coverage. Of course its all about sales and they have to feature the 'big bands'.
I did get a very cool Elektra 'Forever Changing' 5 Disc Box Set as a subscription 'gift' so can't complain too much!

Well I take it all back, my prejudice was unfounded. A quick sneaky peek at the article and it's not a cut & paste job at all. Looked like each album has a description merely captioned with a brief quote from a reader. Paul T's name features prominently too, so looks like proper stuff.

Interesting list - if I remember right from a very quick look, seemed Lust For Life is #1, The Idiot #2, then Kill City, then New Values (?). Metallic KO is there at number 5 or 6 I think, but it's good to see no place in the top ten for The Stooges, Fun House or Raw Power.
