Iggy and the Stooges: Live in Detroit (2004)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Raw Power

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

One of the greatest and most influential punk bands in history reunited for an August, 2003 gig in Detroit, and this 60-minute DVD captures it all with glorious sound. Iggy Pop and the Stooges play classics like "Dirt," "Loose" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog," though they somehow avoid their amazing 1971 Raw Power album altogether. (I mean, what's a Stooges concert without "Search and Destroy"?) Unfortunately, Iggy is in a seriously obnoxious mood during the show and keeps shouting and repeating inane things at the crowd. It's so annoying that even die-hard fans will probably only make it through one viewing. On the plus side, the disc comes with a bonus 50-minute in-store appearance by the same band, and despite the static camera angle, it's loads better. Iggy is in much better form, telling stories and jokes, and the songs sound just as good, if not better, in the smaller venue. Other extras include Mike Watt's journal, "sing-a-long" versions, a photo gallery, and a CREEM magazine archive.
