    ATP Concerts Presents:
    London Hammersmith Apollo
    2nd and 3rd May 2010

    IGGY & THE STOOGES performing RAW POWER in its entirety
    supported by SUICIDE performing SUICIDE (first lp)
    with more special guests to be confirmed!

    Taking place at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday 2nd May and Monday 3rd May 2010, these will be the The Stooges first shows with famed guitarist James Williamson for over 35 years and are sure to be unforgettable events.
    Raw Power, released in 1973, was the Stooges third and final album. Despite it's commercial failure on release, it has grown in stature over the years and is now seen as one of the most raw and uncompromising rock LPs ever created, as well as being a vital influence on the burgeoning punk rock scene at the time. Featuring songs such as the classic Search & Destroy, Gimme Danger and the title track, it was re-mixed for release by David Bowie, but Iggy Pop's later restored mix made it louder and even more vicious. Pitchfork Magazine awarded the album a perfect 10.0 score.

    Suicide, released in 1977 to a confused reaction, can now be seen as a pre-cursor to synth-pop, no-wave and industrial; and as one of the most intense punk rock albums ever created. Featuring classics such as Ghost Rider, Rocket USA and the unforgettably bleak Frankie Teardrop, Alan Vega and Martin Rev's masterpiece has influenced a plethora of artists including Bruce Springsteen, Radiohead, R.E.M. and Joy Division.

    More special guests are yet to be confirmed for these nights.

    Tickets for these two very special shows are priced at £30 + booking fee and are on sale now from www.seetickets.com

    Sounds like it's going to be a fantastic show; I wish I could be there. Frankly, I've always preferred "Raw Power" to the other two Stooges albums, and I never tire of hearing Suicide's debut disc. It's on a par with "The Velvet Underground and Nico".

    I always thought Funhouse & the first album were way better than Raw Power, but Raw Power was improved greatly after Pop remixed that abortion of a David Bowie attempt. They'd better play I Got a Right, the best Raw Power song that got left out due to some idiot thinking it was too much for the hippies or some such foolishness.

    Godd told me about Suicide, and god is Todd, as you should all know by now.
