SXSW Music: Iggy Pop
More “Funtime” from the king of punks
DAILY Music March 17, 2016, by Greg Beets
"...Even though he steered completely clear of the Stooges, Wednesday night’s two-hour SXSW showcase at ACL Live at the Moody Theater was far and away the more compelling article. Once you’ve washed off the blood and peanut butter, the essence of Iggy Pop’s artistry is articulating complex, uncouth feelings in plain street language..."

Music Story June 15, 2017, by Raoul Hernandez

ACL Taping: Iggy Pop
No “Search and Destroy” except for the entire set itself
DAILY Music March 16, 2016, by Tim Stegall
"...Behind the amps, Iggy Pop sits atop a stool in expensive black evening wear and no shirt, awaiting his entrance, swaying to his band’s massive groove and drinking bottled water. He spits it out, flips both middle fingers at the audience, and mouths “FUCK YOU” with a Lone Star-sized grin...."
Please Leave Iggy Pop Alone!
Postmarks June 28, 2007
Kelly Willis, please leave Iggy Pop alone! Your version of "Success" is an abject failure and lacks the sincerity and spirit of the song.
Thanks and a huge sigh of relief from all the Iggy Pop fans of the world...."

Punk legends to preview new LP ‘Ready to Die’
DAILY Music March 4, 2013, by Tim Stegall
"...In a press statement, legendary frontman Iggy Pop stated, “My motivation in making any record with the group at this point is no longer personal. It’s just a pig-headed fucking thing I have that a real fucking group, when they’re an older group, they also make fucking records..."
Playback: Post Pop Depression: After SXSW
Still wearing your SXSW badge or wristband? We don't blame you.
Music Column March 24, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Exhilarating ride those nine days, beginning with President Barack Obama copping Torchy's Tacos and ending with Drake materializing at Fader Fort to perform six songs. In betwixt, punk daredevil Iggy Pop, re-energized with a backing band led by Queens of the Stone Age bruiser Josh Homme, delivered two mighty performances at the Moody Theater, both including live rarity "China Girl" and material from new LP Post Pop Depression..."
ACL Interview: Iggy & the Stooges
Sunday, 6:15pm, Bud Light stage
Music Story October 5, 2012, by Kevin Curtin
"...In 1974, the Stooges couldn't stand any more abuse from fans, the pop music infrastructure, or themselves, so they disbanded. While Iggy Pop went to rehab and later became a pop star, guitarist James Williamson studied engineering, worked at Advanced Micro Devices, and eventually became a VP at Sony (see "Shake Appeal," May 28, 2010)..."

Iggy & the Stooges
Zilker Park, Oct. 14
Music Story October 12, 2012, by Adam Schragin
"...Twenty-six years later, the band reunited and recorded new music, and although the death of founding guitarist Ron Asheton put the band's future into question, it's returned again under the tweaked moniker of Iggy & the Stooges, with V.2 guitarist James Williamson of Raw Power fame, and Minuteman Mike Watt on bass. Live, Pop commands a stage like he did in his band's first coming..."
Film Review February 10, 2006, by Marc Savlov
Where else can you see Iggy Pop
& the Stooges back to back with Morrissey, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Belle & Sebastian, Bright Eyes, and Nine Inch Nails? Nowhere but in this rambling, celebratory documentary, which covers performances from all six years of the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and manages to catch the laid-back, slow-fi charm of the actual event.
"...The perpetually festival-mad UK may have Glastonbury (too muddy), and Reading (eh …), and Scotland's T in the Park (no coffee, dammit!), but we Yanks have Coachella, and, speaking from experience, it rocks the proverbial house like no other. Where else can you see Iggy Pop & the Stooges back to back with Morrissey, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Belle & Sebastian, Bright Eyes, and Nine Inch Nails? Nowhere but in this rambling, celebratory documentary, which covers performances from all six years of the festival's history (though, annoyingly, doesn't bother to tell you which year you're actually watching at any particular time) but nonetheless manages to catch the laid-back, slow-fi charm of the actual event..."
Iggy Pop, whistling a merry tune
Music Story March 16, 2007, by Margaret Moser
"...Iggy Pop, who'll turn 60 in April, is calling from "Miami, the edge of America and a short spit from New York." He's in great spirits, wisecracking, laughing, and acting for all the world like a rock star enjoying his life. Which is exactly what he is..."
SXSW List No. 5
NOFX, Leon Russell, and Trae Tha Truth join Iggy Pop
DAILY Music January 29, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Yesterday, in a standalone announcement, South by Southwest confirmed the 2016 conference’s first superstar – Iggy Pop. The leathery punk visionary tests out his new band with Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme at the Moody Theater on Wednesday, March 16, promoting upcoming LP Post Pop Depression...."
End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones
Film Review October 22, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...On the other hand, three of the four original members have passed away in the last three years, two to cancer and one (predictably, it was Dee Dee) from a heroin OD, which renders this celebration of the Ramones also something of a wake, albeit one with enough undiluted Lower East Side energy to power a thousand Marshall amps for millennia. Which brings us back to the mystery of how, in 1974, four scruffy Forest Hills ne’er-do-wells who were obsessed with Iggy Pop and the Stooges could coalesce and mutate into the single most influential rock & roll band since the Beatles and manage to stick it out for nearly a quarter-century come hell, high water, and more personality crises than the New York Dolls..."
The Rugrats Movie
Film Review November 27, 1998, by Hollis Chacona
The babies' first theatrical adventure is nonstop, but padded with lots of pop
"...Despite a few funny moments, and some richly colored and fluid animation, The Rugrats Movie simply cannot sustain the frenetic charm and imagination of the shorter TV segments. Particularly ill-advised are the musical numbers that seem artificial and de rigueur despite some pretty heavy musical artillery (Elvis Costello, No Doubt, Laurie Anderson, and Iggy Pop to name but a few)..."
Sound on Sound Fest Pops!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Electric Wizard, and king Stooge himself
DAILY Music June 20, 2017, by Kevin Curtin

Tony Visconti Part 1
DAILY Music June 19, 2008, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Devour Visconti’s 2007 autobiography Bowie, Bolan, and the Brooklyn Boy and you can tack on credits for U2, Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker, Morrissey, Gentle Giant, the Boomtown Rats, the Stranglers. When that mark of excellence stamped the advances for Alejandro Escovedo’s new Real Animal, Austin’s very own Lou Reed/Iggy Pop/Mick & Keith had finally arrived in rock royalty style..."
SXSW Live Shot: OBN IIIs
Stooge-ly locals go less James Williamson, more Thin Lizzy
DAILY Music March 21, 2015, by Tim Stegall

Austin Film Festival Review: Gimme Danger
A real cool time hanging in Iggy Pop’s fun house
DAILY Screens October 17, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...Ann Arbor proto-punk godheads Iggy Pop and the Stooges remain as iconic today as they ever were, and this Jim Jarmusch documentary is a loving, loud, and thoroughly entertaining tribute to the band and their dirty, gutter-glam influence...."
Prince Charming: Adam Ant
King of the Wild Frontier returns to Austin – tonight
DAILY Music July 26, 2013, by Tim Stegall
"...Adam Ant is speaking by phone from the offices of his new, self-owned independent label, Blueback Hussar Records. The first two-thirds of the label’s moniker doubles as the belated name for a character the iconic British pop star played, Ziggy Stardust-style, as the Eighties’ first true pop star..."

Ursine wrestling of the mind
DAILY Music November 9, 2015, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...Living in near obscurity through seven years and three LPs, the Baltimore trio finally broke out with its fourth full-length, last year’s Singles on 4AD. The impassioned nobodies have since become electro-pop ringleaders...."
