iggy pop / live in detroit on the 26th of september 1980 / lust for life

in 1980 the iggy pop band included glen matlock on bass (sex pistols, rich kids), ivan kral on guitar and keyboards (patti smith, genya ravan) and klaus krüger on drums (tangerine dream, angelika maisch, frieder butzmann), with help from barry andrews and steve new; so on the paper this sounds like a great band, but live their music was under-rehearsed and smeared up with slimy keybored sounds. and yes, you guess, they were appsoulately great. 
what you are going to be listening to is a live concert they executed in detroit at the bookie's club 870 on the 26th of september in 1980: some tracks from the album soldier, some looney stooges tunes and some fun. the album was a half-official release on the luxembourg flashback label in 1991 and seems to be rather rare these days. so, there.
