IGGER THAN THE REST!
The chaotic final year of IGGY & THE STOOGES is to be documented on a new box set this Autumn.
After a two-year break, Iggy’s legendary Detroit destroyers returned with new guitarist James Williamson joining alongside the returning Asheton brothers. Signing with Bowie manager Tony Defries’ MainMan stable, they released the game-changing Raw Power album before heading out on a series of dates in support of the album.
You Think You’re Bad, Man? The Road Tapes 1973-74 captures five incendiary shows from that period across 5 CDs. Kicking off with a September ’73 show at L.A.’s legendary Whisky A Go Go, the set includes shows from Detroit’s Auburn Hills Palace; the Latin Casino, Baltimore; and NYC’s Academy of Music, culminating in the iconic Metallic KO recording from Detroit in February ’74, the band’s final show for nearly thirty years.
The set is completed by a 20-page booklet with copious notes by legendary journalist and Vive Le Rock! contributor Kris Needs.
Due for release through Cherry Red on 20 November, You Think You’re Bad, Man? is available to pre-order here.
