Download Johanna - Iggy Pop & James Williamson - Kill City

To say Iggy Pop had hit bottom in is an understatement; after the final collapse of the StoogesIggy sank deep into drug addiction and depression, and he eventually checked himself into a mental hospital in a desperate effort to get himself clean and functional again. Johanna - Iggy Pop & James Williamson - Kill City the same time, James Williamsonhis guitarist and writing partner in the last edition of the Stoogesstill believed their collaboration had some life in it, and he talked his way into Jimmy Webb 's home studio to record demos in hopes of scoring a record deal.

Iggy checked out of the hospital for a weekend to cut vocal tracks, and while the demos they made were quite good, no record companies were willing to take a chance on them. The tapes sat unnoticed untilwhen Bomp!

Kill City never hits as hard as the manic roar of the Stooges ' Raw Powerbut the songs are Johanna - Iggy Pop & James Williamson - Kill City good, and the album's more measured approach suits the dark, honest tone of the material. The sense of defeat that runs through "Sell Your Love," "I Got Nothin'," and "No Sense of Crime" was doubtless a mirror of Iggy 's state of II.

Larghetto - Shostakovich* / Poulenc* - Bernstein*, New York Philharmonic*, William Vacchiano, An, but he expressed his agony Policeman - Various - In Your Room - Number 9 - blunt eloquence, and his sneering rejection of the Hollywood street scene in "Lucky Monkeys" is all the more cutting coming from a man who had lived through the worst of it.

And in the title song, Iggy expressed his state of mind and sense of purpose with a fierce clarity: "If I have to die here, first I'm going to make some noise. The music is more open and bluesy than on Raw Powerand while Williamson 's guitar remains thick and powerful, here he's willing to make room for pianos, acoustic guitars, and saxophones, and the dynamics of the arrangements suggest a more mature approach after the claustrophobia of Raw Power.

Kill City is rough, flawed, and dark, but it also takes the pain of Iggy 's nightmare days and makes something affecting out of it, and considering its origins, it's a minor triumph.
