Watch Noel Gallagher Join Johnny Marr On Smiths & Iggy Pop Songs In London

Johnny Marr just released a new album, Playland, and Noel Gallagher just announced that he's got a new album due out in March 2015, Chasing Yesterday, on which Marr will appear. So it doesn't come as a huge surprise that Noel showed up at London's Brixton Academy to join Marr onstage for a… More »

Iggy Pop To Play Serial Killer In Crowdfunded Argento Film

Iggy Pop has spent some time moonlighting as an actor over the years, and his filmography is a weird one: Cry-Baby! Tank Girl! The Crow: City Of Angels! Snow Day! That scene with Tom Waits on Coffee & Cigarettes! And next year, he may get his first shot as a leading man. Obviously, he'll play… More »

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of August 2014: Gone Girl, The Hateful Eight, Guardians Of The Galaxy, & More

August is, generally speaking, not such a great month. It's the dead zone between blockbuster season and Oscar season, and the moment before TV's fall schedule kicks off. So then, this month my favorite soundtrack moments came from all over -- from one glorious blockbuster to end the summer, to good-but-not-amazing movies I happened to… More »

Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, & Thurston Moore – “Nobody’s City” (The Gun Club Cover)

A key part of the early L.A. punk scene, the Gun Club brought a sort of dessicated blues glamor to the scene where hardcore was being born. A new tribute album called Axels & Sockets will honor the band and its late frontman Jeffrey Lee Pierce by collecting tracks from the Jeffrey Lee PierceMore »

Watch Iggy Pop And New Order Play “Love Will Tear Us Apart” And “Californian Grass”

Last night Carnegie Hall hosted the 24th annual benefit concert for Tibet House US, a non-profit organization geared toward preserving Tibetan culture. Patti Smith (covering Lou Reed's "Perfect Day"), members of the National with Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, and Tibetan folk singer Techung performed, and the headliner was Bernard Sumner's latest version of New Order… More »

Merry Christmas From Iggy Pop

No, that's not Fabio -- it's Iggy Pop, and he (along with his swimming pool, a bird, and some puppies) wants to wish you a merry Christmas. That's really all there is to say about it, so let's get on with the holiday greeting. More »

Watch The CBGB Movie Trailer

The Bowery has changed a lot over the past decade. The luxury condo:junkie ratio is literally probably like 100:1. The space that used to be CBGB is now a John Varvatos shop. They sell rocker clothes. I saw a circa-1983 Iron Maiden shirt selling there for $450. Those things are arguably less insulting than the… More »

Watch Iggy And The Stooges On The Colbert Report

Iggy Pop has certain things in life figured out, and one of them is this: You don't attempt to go joke-for-joke with Stephen Colbert when you're on his show. Instead, Iggy, Colbert's guest last night, was just his leathery acid-casualty self during his interview segment with Colbert, and he gave his impression of Link Wray'… More »

Stream Iggy & The Stooges Ready To Die

Proto-punk deities Iggy & The Stooges have named their second reunion album Ready To Die, and I can't tell if they're trolling the universe by giving it the same title as the greatest rap album ever made or if Iggy Pop just has no idea who Biggie Smalls is. We've already posted the album's charged-u… More »

Iggy And The Stooges – “Burn”

Iggy And The Stooges band are, give or take the Rolling Stones, the greatest and most important band who have no need to continue existing (let alone making new music) in 2013, and who persist in doing so nevertheless. The Stooges will release Ready To Die, their follow-up to the deeply unfortunate 2007 reunion album… More »

Iggy Pop – “Asshole Rules the Navy” (Feat. A Hawk And A Hacksaw)

The forthcoming nautical-song compilation Son of Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys has a whole lot of big names attached; we've already heard Tom Waits and Keith Richards team up to take on the traditional folk song "Shenandoah." But in its two discs, the comp only has one track as delightfully titled… More »

Iggy Pop & Bethany Cosentino – “Let’s Boot And Rally”

Recently, Iggy Pop & Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino recorded a song for the True Blood soundtrack called "Let's Boot And Rally," a song co-written by KCRW DJ Gary Calamar (Calamar also serves as True Blood's music supervisor). It's a quick, fun groove where Iggy takes the lead and Bethany backs him up. Basically, it's the… More »

Foos’ Taylor Hawkins Playing Iggy Pop In CBGB Movie

Last week, we posted the news that a new movie called CBGB was in the works, with Alan Rickman as club owner Hilly Kristal and Malin Ackerman as Debbie Harry. Now Billboard reports that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, of all possible people, will play Iggy Pop. This raises its own questions. Like:… More »

Iggy Pop & Ginger Baker Cover The Black Keys

Usually, younger bands are supposed to pay tribute to older, legendary, seminal-type bands, often by covering their songs on tribute albums. That's just how it works. But in an inversion of the formula, Iggy Pop and Cream/Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker have teamed up to record an exceedingly faithful cover of the Black Keys' still-kinda-new… More »

Hear Serge Gainsbourg Covers From Rufus Wainwright, Iggy Pop, Shane MacGowan, Johnny Depp

The legendary French singer/libertine Serge Gainsbourg is a man worth honoring, and a new tribute album called From Lulu To Gainsbourg does just that. Gainsbourg's son Lulu put together the tribute and sings about half the songs, but he also brought in an impressive array of famous people to sing his father's songs. Rufus Wainwright,… More »

Optimus Alive! 2011 In Photos

Optimus Alive! went down in Passeio Marítimo de Alges in Portugal over the weekend. Headliners included Coldplay and Jane's Addiction. The riverside fest had a nice mix of nostalgia (Stooges, Blondie) and fresh electronic sounds (James Blake, Duck Sauce) too, but while Primal Scream got to play Screamadelica front to back, the Pretty Reckless didn't… More »

Iggy Pop Was On American Idol

Iggy's appearance on FOX's tailspun talent show last night is somewhat surprising; his choice of wardrobe less so (as always he prefers to just "stay like I am"). At least it might be surprising? There are pros who recap and assess American Idols' every move, and they do a good job at it and… More »

NY Times Puts Old Rockers In New Suits

In a photo spread titled "Ballad Of A Thin Man" and subtitled "Godfathers Of Glam" and basically boiling down to "Someone Old, Something New," this Sunday's T Mag juxtaposed the exquisitely preserved mortal coils of a few elder rock gods with some very fancy, very NEW designer threads. There's Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Dave Gahan,… More »
