Search and Destroy

I saw them live this summer, it was awsome!

search and destroy.... wrong forum anyway


There's no proto-punk or garage rock forum, so I think this is the closest. My favorites are the ones I've heard: Raw Power, Search and Destroy, I Wanna Be Your Dog, My Idea of Fun. Without The Stooges: Lust for Life, The Passenger, No Fun.

I've been meaning to buy one of The Stooges albums. Which one is the best?

Amusing. I just now put a video of I Wanna Be Your Dog on my page, for a friend to enjoy.

As I was looking at the main index, iggy pop shows up as the most recently replied to thread in B&A.

Raw Power is amazing. Othen than that, I like 1970, 1969, No Fun, Dog, TV Eye/
Saw 'em at Harewood House and it was amazing. Had a stage invasion during No Fun and I got on stage. Nearly lost my trainer like, but it was such an adrenaline rush dodging the security (though must admit, they had pretty much given up by the time I went for it)
Super Leeds and Classy Cas!

Funhouse.

Always Funhouse.

Down on the Street and 1970 are right on its heels though...

And Search and Destroy can bring me an almost sexual pleasure if it is played at a high volume with some speakers that can sort of control the fuzz.

It is a fuzzy track, after all...

I'm not huges on the Stooges, but my favourite without question is Down on the street.

Yeah I really like them but theres something about them that doesn't grab me as much other proto-punk bands do. Like I appreciate their influence and their great tunes but not as much as I thought I would. I think its the combination of excessive pentatonic masturbation, the hard rock/blues structures and also Iggys voice, oh yeah I also find a lot of their songs drag on too long.

Saying that they are a great band. 'Gimme Danger', 'Your pretty face is going to hell' and '1969' are the best.

Please don't hurt me

It's really the wah that killed the first album for me.

To me, wahwah has connotations of clean middle class kids in the '60s blues rock era, and it just doesn't "fit" into punk music.

Live, the Stooges sound really good, but the shuffle of 1969, on tape, isn't well captured.

I think that the perfect punk production is something of an oxymoron, because it would have to be raw, huge and orchestrated somehow at the same time.

That said, fun house is a better attempt, and has great production.

Apparently the stooges only had 3 songs when they recorded their first album, which is why most of it is mindless crap.

The only guitar work by Ron Asheton I like is his work in destroy all monsters. It's really lush and tasteful.

I need it all, baby, that's no lie
I need a lover with an alibi
I wanna fall into a love so sweet
Honey baby baby I'm hard to beat

1970, Ann, No Fun, Not Right
I love all forms of Rock 'n' Roll, past and NOT present

I just went out to a club, but i didn't go in because Iron Maiden were playing.

We knocked for a lass, and she had a stooges remix of 1969 that had ooh yeah or something, and she threw me out of her house because I told her that ooh yeah has nothing to do with silver glitter paint, peanut butter and defecating on stage.

I know someone who listened to 2 seconds of TV Eye and called it "indie punk ****".

I managed to stop myself from beating him (it's not the first time he's been retarded)
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!
#22
TV Eye or anything on Funhouse.

I'm always going back and forth between Raw Power and Funhouse for favorite albums

No Fun and I wanna be your dog are cool, though I don´t know much.....

Does anyone listen to Iggy WITHOUT the Stooges?


Yes, he does good solo work.

My favorite Stooges song is Search & Destroy.

I saw them in April, got a guitar pic, the setlist, and sang with Iggy, Nothing will beat that night.

Haha, just had a good laugh on MSN.

Freddward S. Smith says:

Stiv says:

Freddward S. Smith says:

Stiv says:

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

ah yeah, Iggy Pop. Odds are I first heard him on that "Candy" song he did back in the 90s, and I saw his preformance on the Old Grey Whistle Test DVD I've got. Plus that "Punkrocker" song he did with that Teddybears band.....

Just borrowed his American Caesar album from a friend yesterday, though, and the guy's genuinely mindblowing. He's very personal with his music, not something I was really expecting. Again, awesome stuff.

Hoping to at least get Raw Power soon, or maybe some sort of "Best Of" album......
