The Stooges changed everything. Along with The Velvet Underground, they kicked over the statues, leaving infinite legacy all the way down the line.
In tribute to this most amazing band I have designed this-
Abstract iguana inspired by My Girlfriend Hates My Heroin bootleg.
When I first heard The Sex Pistols version of 'No Fun', it immediately became my favourite song of theirs, along with 'New York'. Sometime later when someone explained it was in fact a song by a band called The Stooges, I went straight out and bought the first thing I could find with it on. Sitting transfixed on the bus home, staring at Iggy’s spaceman elbow length silver gloves.
Once home I put the record on, hearing '1969' for the first time… Spitting slashing snarling wah wah filled the room like a razor cut as Scott Ashton kept cool, before Iggy’s “Alright” introduced a tune as dirty and groovy as you’ll ever hear. James Brown hell funk for metal garages.
The Stooges - a band powerfully able to transport a three bar fired living space into a giant riff.
