Iggy and The Stooges - Escaped Maniacs (DVD)
Release Date: 07/15/08
Spectacular performance, filmed at the 2005 Lokerse Festival, featuring most of the tracks from the first two Stooges albums + more!
This double DVD package features a spectacular performance filmed at the 2005 Lokerse Festival. It includes blistering versions of most of the tracks from the first two Stooges albums in addition to two newer songs, 'Skull Ring' and 'Dead Rock Star'. It's clear from the opening bass riff of 'Loose' that the Stooges' raw power has not waned. It all kicks off with the pounding primitive thud of Scott 'Rock' Asheton's drums. Ex-Minuteman Mike Watt (standing in for the dearly departed Dave Alexander) lets rip with a powerful bass wobble guaranteed to let loose the most uptight caboose. Scott's brother Ron grinds in on guitar to create a filthy groove, over which he adds the mind-melting wail of distorted wah. On top of this sea of sound floats the one and only Iggy, whose grunting, gurgling, let-it-all-hang-out vocal style and on-stage gyrations epitomize the art of singing as the raw expression of the soul.
