notable new compilations of The Stooges and The Move.
In an age where you can find almost everything on You Tube or Spotify and everyone makes their own playlists is there still any point in the compilation album?
Maybe – but it had better be really good.
‘Gimme Danger’ originally appeared in 1973 on Iggy and The Stooges’ Raw Power album.
It’s riff (courtesy of guitarist James Williamson) remains one of the most ominous sounds in rock ‘n’ roll and it’s both the title and opening track of a new Stooges compilation.
Essentially it’s a soundtrack – the companion disc to Jim Jarmusch’s recent documentary about this seminal band and their remarkable survivor-frontman Iggy Pop.
