“A real fucking group… they also make fucking records. They don't just go and twiddle around on stage to make a bunch of fucking money” – Iggy Pop
Better 40 years later than never: The follow-up album READY TO DIE is the first record ever to bear the Iggy and the Stooges logo, since the immortal proto-punk masterpiece RAW POWER.
READY TO DIE finds Iggy Pop, guitarist James Williamson and drummer Scott “Rock Action” Asheton reunited for a full album of all-new material 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.
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.”
