Stooges/Iggy Pop
« on: August 14, 2017, 11:53:35 PM »
James Newell Osterberg, Jr. (born April 21, 1947), better known by his stage name Iggy Pop (/ˈɪɡi pɒp/), and designated the "Godfather of Punk,"[1][2] is an American singer, songwriter, musician, producer and actor. He was the vocalist of influential proto-punk band The Stooges, who reunited in 2003,[3] and is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics.[4][5][6]

Pop's music has encompassed a number of styles over the course of his career, including garage rock, punk rock, hard rock, art rock, new wave, jazz and blues.[7] Though his popularity has fluctuated through the years, many of Pop's songs have become well-known, including "Search and Destroy" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges, and his solo hits "Lust for Life" and "Real Wild Child (Wild One)".

In 2010, The Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Cool Iggy Pop song from the Shocker Soundtrack.
Love Transfusion- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CORAZNyu2eo

I always assumed that tune was meant for Alice Cooper, since it was written by Desmond Child and just SOUNDS like a 1989 Alice tune. Just did a quick search and it turns out that's correct. The song is written by Alice Cooper, Desmond Child and some other guy. I also found this Rolling Stone article which mentions the tune:

"Iggy goes hair metal! Pop met Alice Cooper back in the Stooges days when they were front men for two of the wildest bands on the Detroit scene. By the late Eighties, the rock veterans realized they might be in a position to help each other out. Cooper passed along this collaboration with hard rock song doctor Desmond Child, adding some highly recognizable backing vocals, and Iggy found himself on the soundtrack to Wes Craven's Shocker. "Love Transfusion" was not a hit, but its all-too-Eighties production – saxophone, a synth part like the boing of an electronic bed spring, a wanky guitar solo from hired gun Guy Mann-Dude– offers a weirdly compelling snapshot of what Iggy Pop thought a hit record might sound like in the George H.W. Bush era."

That Man/Machine Imperfection guy didn't post too much, but he was pretty much always right.

Definitely sounds like an Alice Cooper tune, and I did read the background on the song. Still a cool song though.

yeah that song definitely wouldn't be out of place on an 80's or 90's Cooper album. and The intro sounds like Depeche Mode.
