Summary

Better 40 years later than never: The follow-up to the first record ever to bear the IGGY AND THE STOOGES logo-the immortal proto-punk masterpiece Raw Power-as Fat Possum Records releases the all-new Iggy and the Stooges studio album, Ready To Die. Ready To Die finds IGGY POP, guitarist JAMES WILLIAMSON and drummer SCOTT "ROCK ACTION" ASHETON reunited for a full album of all-new material for the first time since the legendary Raw Power sessions, with MIKE WATT filling in for the late RON ASHETON on bass. The results are the closest thing to a time capsule to 1973-or at least to Iggy's subsequent efforts with Williamson, including 1977's Kill City and 1979's New Values-that rock 'n' roll is likely to proffer in this millennium. The new album's opening one-two of "Burn" and "Sex & Money" pair sublimely blunt and self-explanatory subject matter with back alley razor-blade guitars and a troglodytic rhythmic stomp as intensely single-minded as Iggy's lyrical statements of intent. Elsewhere on the album, anthems abound in the form of the most dead-on rallying cry for the lower-working-class dispossessed to date--the succinctly and aptly titled "Job"-as well as a title track that mixes a signature Iggy Pop mission statement of angry desperation with guitar pyrotechnics that recall those halcyon opening salvos of "Search & Destroy." Just as Iggy exhumed the original Stooges name when he reunited in 2003 with the Asheton brothers, the revival of the Iggy and the Stooges moniker that first appeared on the cover of Raw Power heralded the return of guitarist James Williamson to the fold in 2009, or as Iggy put it then "although 'the Stooges' died with Ron Asheton, there is still 'Iggy and the Stooges'."
