Iggy and the Stooges – Raw Power 1

Posted by Andy Cahn On April - 5 - 2010

The newest Legacy Podcast series pays tribute to new Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members, Iggy & the Stooges, and their 1973 album, Raw PowerJon Langford (The Mekons, Waco Brothers) hosts this four part series on how this seminal album was made, and how it influenced future generations of punk rockers.

Interview clips from Iggy Pop, his bandmates and others influenced by them are included between album tracks and other previously unreleased outtakes and live recordings from the new deluxe Raw Power reissues in stores April 13, 2010.

Like the classic quote about the Velvet Underground, it didn’t sell many records at the time, but everyone who bought one started a band.  We hear from three such people –  Henry Rollins (Black Flag / Rollins Band), Mike Watt (Minutemen / Firehose) and Johnny Marr (Smiths / Modest Mouse / 7 Worlds Collide) , who each count this record as a major influence on their own legendary musical careers.
