The Dead Don't Die Trailer

If you’ve seen one zombie movie, you’ve probably seen them all. The undead walking amongst the living and spreading the infection by chomping down on innocent victims. The rules of surviving this world have been well established throughout many zombie films.

But the latest from writer and director Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers, Only Lovers Left Alive), titled The Dead Don’t Die, portrays zombies in a different kind of light. One that will see Adam Driver leading “the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled.”

Focus Features has released an official trailer for the film, and you can check it out below along with a poster.

The Stooges Drummer Scott Asheton Dead At 64

Scott Asheton

Scott Asheton, the drummer of The Stooges since its inception and along with his late brother Ron and frontman Iggy Pop, and who remained a consistent member of the group, passed away on March 15, 2014. He was 64. The news of Asheton’s passing was posted today to Iggy Pop’s Facebook page.

With Ron Asheton on guitar, Scott Asheton on drums, Dave Alexander on bass, and Iggy Pop on snarling lead vocals, The Stooges became of the progenitors of the entire punk scene which followed it. While scores of bands at the time were singing and playing music that was essentially white man’s blues, The Stooges turned the heat on the collective Bunsen burner skyward and forged a new musician’s game, one in which attitude and fierce white noise was the order of the day. While originally on the fringes of the fringe when they first started, it was on the strength of albums like Raw Power, Funhouse, and their self-titled debut released 45 years ago this year, that The Stooges became one of the leading pioneers in the sculpting and eventual finalized shaping the first wave of punk music, circa 1976 to 1980, crystallized in places like New York City, LA, and England.

$5 Album Deal: Iggy Pop ‘Lust For Life’

Iggy Pop

Lust For Life, a classic Iggy Pop solo album produced by David Bowie and featuring the memorable raunchy title track, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00. Lust for Life is also available on CD for only $4.99 and is an AutoRip, which means it comes with a FREE MP3 version of the album.

The follow up to the Pop’s first solo venture The Idiot, Lust for Life finds its dirty fingers in the sonic cookie jar, as The Stooges front man exposes himself in the manner which he is most accustomed to in that band, and spills his darkest secrets and dirty fetishes on the sonic canvas. With the bizarre title track, with its memorable drum beat, and Iggy waxing about wondering where someone got lotion and speaking of taking it in the ear before, or the sexual metaphors of “The Passenger,” with its dark edged, yet bright, almost sing-a-long passages, to the spitting in the face of his detractors with “Success,” (which is almost like a twisted flipside to Bowie’s hit single “Fame”) to “Some Weird Sin,” Iggy still cuts like a knife, but is able to do so under a mid ’70s David Bowie production which finds him in a little bit more at the mainstream party, but still sitting at the juvenile delinquents table however. Lust for Life is a great darkhorse of an album during a time that was sandwiched in between the original proto-punk sounds of The Stooges and The MC5 and the right around the corner blowout success that punk music proper sported.

Free Streaming: Iggy and The Stooges Upcoming Album ‘Ready To Die’

Iggy and the Stooges

After Iggy Pop celebrated his birthday yesterday, he gives the fans back a present as his latest upcoming album with his Stooges, titled Ready To Die, is now available for a full listen for free over at NPR.

The album, which reunites him with James Williamson (the two haven’t played together on record since Pop’s 1979 solo effort New Values), clocks in at under 35 minutes and showcases the spirit and hard edge of the band’s glory years. The fact that the 66-year-old Iggy and the 63-year-old Williamson are even able to muster up sounds such as these, which range from the simplistic yet powerful yelps of pre-punk rock and roll to mellow ballads with iron bottom floors to them, is alone ear opening. In hearing the record, the men (along with original Stooges drummer Scott Asheton and bass by the post-punk legend Mike Watt) musically wax earnest, bouquets all around indeed for effort and attitude.

Happy Birthday To The Stooges Front Man, The Iconic Iggy Pop!

Iggy Pop

Happy Birthday today to one of rock and roll’s true blue hard edged, hard nosed mofos, a man who needs no introduction but I’ll give him one anyway – one who doesn’t play it by anyone’s rules, never has and never will, a singer who took the blues influences before him and smashed it over his head, and then licked the metaphoric blood droplets it caused, creating his own personal revolution of aural sounds which were crystallized like the very last ingredients in a homemade bottle of moonshine with cocaine in its ether, the one and only, and only one, Iggy Pop.

Incredibly, it’s the man’s 66th birthday today, and like one of his influences, Mick Jagger, has also spit in the face of Father Time, drove a steamroller over his back, and still chugs his way up the musical mountain range with one hand tied behind his back while hopping up it. With his muscular yet still rail thin, nary an ounce of fat on it frame, and his vocals, which can snarl at you like vipers coming out of a mother’s bosom, or can swoon with the same hidden thunder by way of a Frank Sinatra, and then can mid-range itself like the posturings of Lizard King Jim Morrison, the art and life of Iggy Pop has blurred, remains blurred, wants to be blurred. He seems to live on an edge of an edge of an envelope that continuously cuts him in perpetuity, his work with The Stooges continues to inspire the glorious filthiest of the filthy sounds that birthed punk and the like sounds that at once intimidate, luxuriate, and fascinate at every turn and clip when it violently bleeds its way out of the speakers.

Iggy and The Stooges Explode With New Songs & Fan Favorites At SXSW 2013

Iggy and the Stooges

With the music arm of the 2013 edition of SXSW in full swing and sonic force, who better to kick off that inaugural night deep in the heart of Austin, Texas at the House of Vans showcase at Mohawk than Iggy and the Stooges, who have already gained plenty of PR this year, with an album on the way followed by a summer tour. The band threw their hearts full of napalm into the delirious and frenzied crowd a few nights ago, debuting a few songs from their upcoming album Ready To Die, which is the first to feature the lead guitar strains of James Williamson on record since the band’s seminal 1973 release Raw Power, released over 40 years ago this year.

Led by T-N-T [he’s dynamite] lead singer Iggy Pop, who although in his mid-60s, still burns like a white hot, white noise whirling dervish of intensity and sonically apoplectic moxie, had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand, which has been his musical wont since he made mincemeat of a microphone and a stage over 45 years ago when The Stooges’ first musical strains were heard in Southern Michigan.

Ron Asheton

The late, great Ron Asheton, one of the paramount figures of the original Detroit hard rock/early punk sounds and styles whose work with the original incarnation of The Stooges garnered him as an important of a factor to its influence and staying (raw) power as much as the five foot one man who was born with sonic attitude, Iggy Pop, is being immortalized on a forthcoming DVD to be released in April of this year.

The DVD, which commemorates the man’s legacy and talents via testimonials by fans and friends alike, and a full-length tribute concert done by surviving band members, which was recorded and filmed back on April 10, 2011, bears the direct and to the point title: A Tribute To Ron Asheton.

You can check out the trailer for the DVD here below, along with the track listing and other details.

Biopic About Iggy Pop and David Bowie In Berlin During the 1970s In The Works

Iggy Pop and David Bowie

A new biopic is in the early stages right now which will visually showcase the collaboration between the musical men-about-town punk/post punk/psycho and ambient rock monarchs, Iggy Pop and David Bowie.

Entitled Lust For Life (which was first the name of a 1956 film starring Anthony Quinn about the tortured genius painter Vincent Van Gogh, but in later years became more associated with Iggy Pop as the title track from his seminal 1977 release produced by Bowie and created in Berlin), the film will focus on the trials, trails, and artistic roads the two men walked down during their jaunt to West Berlin in the mid-1970s. The decision to go there was influenced heavily by the writings of Christopher Isherwood, the late British writer whose novels The Berlin Stories and Goodbye To Berlin became literary catalysts that (even though they were set in wartime Germany in decay) still painted a wondrous idyllic Berlin, which became a sort of of artistic avant-garde Disneyland for many budding and established painters, musicians, and artists alike who took its cues and ventured there in hopes of finding their inner muses, Iggy Pop and David Bowie among them. Bowie and Berlin was also the focus of some headline controversy at the time when Bowie reportedly did a few “Hitler salutes” for the burgeoning crowd when he was in the city; fans, townspeople, and press photographers among those around him when he supposedly did it. It is unclear if that or any controversial matter will wind up in the upcoming biopic.

Iggy and The Stooges’ ‘Raw Power’ Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

The Stooges

Raw Power, the third album by The Stooges, which is considered one of the forerunners of the entire punk movement which followed and dissected it like The Koran or other religious artifacts, celebrates its 40 Anniversary today.

The record, led by the snarling white hot cracked iron pot vocals of Iggy Pop, the filthy and VU Meter popping guitar sounds of James Williamson, and the lurid yet lucid rhythm section of the Asheton brothers, Ron on bass (who originally played lead guitar for the group) and Scott on drums, or maybe they were garbage cans with drum skins on them, now stands as an important record, a playbook of pre-punk and the punk/grunge gumbo that was to follow. Never before in the history of rock and roll (except for possibly the pioneering Seattle band from the 1960s, The Sonics) has a band profited so much in every which way from a more erratic, disjointed, slap-it-together as quick as you can manner and attitude than the approach and execution of what manifested Raw Power. Even the fact that Raw Power was produced by glam-chameleon David Bowie didn’t bring a sense of commercialism to it. It was a record divinely steeped in nihilism, of regret and bargain basement confidence, a record that was whip smart, the whip covered in barbed wire and napalm, its full milieu and scope in a true teenage wasteland.

The Stooges

Iggy and the Stooges, one of the very first pre-punk bands whose ferocious energy has created some of the genre’s most landmark records of all-time and led by the master of disaster Iggy Pop, has just finished recording an album of all new material, the long-awaited follow-up to their 2007 album The Weirdness.

The forthcoming new release is entitled Ready To Die, and is reportedly described by the album’s engineer Ed Cherney as sounding and having the attitude of the “old-time Stooges” and that ultimately the album is “raw, with great songs, not necessarily big choruses,” gushing that on Ready To Die, the band has produced “the anti-Christ of anthems.”
