ugh - more bullshit from Mr. "I Got An Idea" Pop. This is about name recognition and little else. (which is no dis of James Williamson - man's gotta eat) It's not much different from, say, the "new" Ford Mustang. Just because it walks and talks like a Stooge, does not make it a Stooge. Revolutionary art requires context; the war in Viet Nam, Quaaludes, Lester Bangs, Richard Nixon, suburban youth coming of age, Gay Liberation - ah hell, just google "1973". Anyways, fuck "Raw Power". As great as it was, it was full of unfulfilled promise (which is arguably, the Stooge legacy)...and hey, Motherfucker, how about finishing "Kill City"!? if you thought the 1st or 2nd mix was bad wait til this shit hits the road. hopefully they will realize how shitty it is when they start to rehearse. We'll all be lucky if this sounds as good as "New Values". Hands up how many of y'all have listened to Ig's new jazz disc?
And yes, Flipper did freakin' RULE for one glorious flaming moment.
