Thanks to the good people at the Very Short List (one of the greatest, shortest email newsletters out there) we stumbled upon this little bit of musical genius. We all know that David Bowie produced some of Iggy Pop’s great albums (can we please recommend The Idiot for it’s sleazy blast of 80s rock?) but how many knew that Bowie accompanied the scarily thin Iggy Pop on stage in Cleveland in 1977? Not too many.
But he did, and even if Iggy Pop looked like a sixty-five year old female crackhead, this is supposedly one of the great pairings in all of rock history. On record, for the first time in a long time.
We were excited, what can we say?
