IGGY POP - "Everybody fuck off!"

IGGY POP - „Die sollen sich alle verpissen!“

He's secured his pension. So Iggy Pop treats himself to an excursion into avant-garde and jazz filmes. His new album "Free" is an escape from the animal rocker, whom he has been giving since the end of the sixties as convincingly as no other. And at the same time it is a flawless "piss off!" towards its critics.

IGGY POP "Post Pop Depression"

16. March 2016

After the end of the Stooges Iggy tries it with a formation of Josh Homme, Dean Fertita (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys). The result: his best album since "American Caesar" and the worthy conclusion of an almost 50 year long career.

NOW even more so?!

Eight years Deep Purple have been dragging into the country between "Rapture Of The Deep" and their current release "NOW What?! - the longest span since "Come Taste The Band"/"Perfect Strangers". But the considerable abstinence from the studio didn't let the British hard rock flagship get rusty. On the contrary: The third recording of the Mark VIII line-up is its strongest.

Drive into daylight

The stage suit wearer Joe Bonamassa completed his most recent tour of Germany at the beginning of March - the most successful so far for him. And it seems that this would only be a stopover on the JB's autonomous way to the top. Without the big hype, without hits in the luggage - but with a lot of work and an ubiquitous master plan.

Have you ever been to Electric Ladyland...?

Concerts, press and photo appointments, gruelling studio sessions, growing tensions between musicians, pressure from management - despite all these factors, a new album of the Jimi Hendrix Experience was released in the autumn of 1968: the legendary double LP "Electric Ladyland", the third and last recording of the trio. By the time it happened, Hendrix, bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell had come a long, stony and intoxicated way.

Myth of the Resurrection

What would The Doors be without Jim Morrison? Or the other way around, what would Jim Morrison be without The Doors? Morrison is an icon, the Doors are a legend. A myth that is refreshed every few years with a new compilation. 40 years after the release of their cult debut The Doors now let all their samplers lead into a "The Very Best Of". But who needs a new Doors compilation? After all, no new material has been added for 35 years, and the only two albums without Morrison were never released on CD.
