IGGY POP - Live Zombie!
No music for ages, then just like waiting for a bus two come along at once ….Yep here’s some more Iggy Pop for you good people. This ones from 1982, not Iggy’s best year, some might say it was cursed. On a trip to Haiti early in the year Iggy upset a voodoo priest when he got up and danced during a voodoo ceremony. Things went down hill from there with a series of bizarre events like a car crash and the death of a dentist for whom Iggys girlfriend was working for on the island, in order to raise the cash to fly home, as Iggy had given all their money away! At the end of the year after a brief stay in a Mental Institution Iggy hit the road to promote the not very well received album Zombie Birdhouse, which features the playing and production of Clem Burke and Chris Stein of Blondie. This live recording from Toronto in Canada on 28th Oct 1982 was originally issued as a bonus disc with a re-issue edition of Zombie Birdhouse, and finds Iggy in fine frazzled‘n’fraggled form, during the tour his band members including Blondie Guitarist Frank Infante found Iggy “more crazed than ever.” Enjoy! You'd be crazy not to!!
