Download Raw Power: Iggy & the Stooges 1972 epub
by Mick Rock
Today the walking miracle that is Iggy Pop continues to record, perform and shock. Yet in terms of music and celluloid history, 1972 was the year. During this time, Iggy & the Stooges-at the height of their musical powers and legendary excesses - recorded the now-seminal album Raw Power and performed their only UK gig at London's The Scala.?
It was a crazed period captured on camera by one man: Mick Rock.?
Creation Books are now proud to present this unparalleled document of the Stooges. A deluxe edition containing around 200 b&w images (including 47 striking colour shots), many of which have never been published before. Raw Power also features an exclusive interview conducted between Mick Rock and Iggy Pop in 1972, and a brand new introduction by Mick himself.?
"Iggy Pop is, you might say, extreme. He makes the Mick Jaggers and Alice Coopers of this world look kind of timid. Words such as 'spontaneous' and 'unpredictable', frequently applied to him, are a little short on power. Iggy is a monster."-Mick Rock?
Currently living in New York, Mick Rock has provided some of the most iconic images in music history including the 'Ziggy Stardust' Bowie period, Lou Reed, and Queen. He is a 3-time Grammy nominee for album cover photography and an award-winning art director.?Reviews?
"Raw Power is that rarity: the rock book that needs no words. History as it happened."--Uncut?
"These photographs stand out...because of the seeming ease with which they capture the live-fast-die-young spirit of the band and its music. ..A uniquely intimate yet distanced insight into one of history's most important group of musical misfits."-Library Journal?
"A photographic Pandora's box of Iggy and his band's psyche....Rock's photos are simultaneously sharp, stellar and sensitive. They speak beyond your eyes, almost allowing you to hear the music in your mind....Iggy comes across as a pure punk poet."-Punk Planet?
"Finally available as a one-volume document of some of the greatest days of rock'n'roll...This book should be issued along with record contracts to upstarts who dare to share the same stage as these hero freaks."-NME?
