2016 saw the return of filmmaker Jim Jarmusch on two separate fronts with the release of Patterson and his Stooges documentary, Gimme Danger. The latter is now on Netflix, so go ahead and queue it up.

In the meantime: if you haven’t caught the above Iggy Pop curio before, carve out fifteen minutes and do so. In short, having moved to NYC several years prior, a documentary film crew follows Iggy around his east village neighborhood just prior to the massive transformation the area would soon undergo once Giuliani took the reigns as mayor.

We have several copies of the Gimme Danger soundtrack (vinyl + the expanded CD version) and related goodies for a few readers. To enter, leave a comment with a link to your favorite Iggy/Stooges youtube ephemera. Winners contacted later this week via email.

  2. Maybe a little obvious given the Jarmusch theme, but his segment with Tom Waits in Coffee & Cigarettes is my favorite thing about the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49tTzEifY6M.
    Also, not on YouTube, but I love the audio documentary on William S. Burroughs that he narrated: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/546/burroughs-101.

  3. How about this one: Iggy on Dutch tv doing Lust For Life and destroying a palm tree in the process. Must have been life changing for a lot of viewers, I know it was for me.

  4. My favorite video has to be The Stooges at the Cincinnati Pop Featival. Great video, great performance. https://youtu.be/1-zi5MbGPeA

  6. Iggy playing the drums on an 8-foot scaffold dressed in a suit and tiny tie with The Iguanas.

  7. Classic peanut butter big from Cincinnati. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1-zi5MbGPeA

    This is my pick. I find it fascinating because you figure Henry Rollins interviewing the band would have some spark — but it’s utterly boring and often stilted, and you can kind of see them all figure that out as it goes on…

    this seems to be a good time to get a message in

  10. I can’t find gimme danger on Netflix.?

  11. Iggy with david Letterman 1982. Late night in every sense of the word – bold, new, hip…the world was our oyster.

  12. Time travel should be invented for attending gigs like this:

  13. Being Australian, it’s a no-brainer. this interview and performance of ‘I’m Bored’ on Countdown [1979] looms large in the national psyche.


  14. I have a Lust for Life and prizes!

  15. Rolling with clip of “I Got a Right” because 1) it has lots of great pics of the band as a slideshow, and 2) “I Got a Right” is the JAM.


  16. Thanks for sharing AD – besides what was said above with the NYC doc – Iggy in the Hobie tank is rad.

    I can offer up a clip from 1977 – Iggy and Bowie on “Funtime” also a “Sister Midnight” that is a ripper too!



    Sister Midnight:


  17. IGGY POP – WKNR FM Radio Interview 1970—Gentle vintage Iggy answering questions as banal as when Australian reporters drilled poor Lou…

  18. The great Tom Snyder hosted a show about punk/new wave music in 1981, and Iggy was right in the thick of the discussion.


  19. This clip brings back memories of a trip to NYC I took in ’97. I remember walking out of Tower Records in the village and walked right into Iggy. Gave me my New York moment I will always cherish!

    Love this clip of the reunited Stooges (w/ the almighty Mike Watt!) in their native Detroit.

  20. Gotta be this for their Ready to Die album….nobody can make being just about anyone look as cool as Iggy !


  21. Iggy as Mr. Mecklenberg

  22. Prof. Iggy delivering a keynote lecture, with not a single note off key. Really worth watching:


  23. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U61J5jGkxLY

    Iggy’s New Values Lp from 1979 – a favorite of mine and I bet it can become a favorite of your’s as well.

  24. It’s hard to say my favorite, but this is certainly up there, the video for “Loco Mosquito” off the 1980 LP Soldier. He spends the majority of the video in the bathtub getting ready to go out. I always felt like it was this video that led John Waters to book Pop to appear in “Cry Baby.”

    Here you go:

  25. kudos to Chris because thats what i immediately thought of….

    Being Australian, it’s a no-brainer. this interview and performance of ‘I’m Bored’ on Countdown [1979] looms large in the national psyche.

  26. It must be “The Passenger”! 11.326.385 people on YouTube could be wrong, but they are not: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4hPnZUMBwA
