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

Many would agree Raw Power is one of the best lp's of all time, period. Fortunately Mick Rock was there to snap some amazing photos of the band during their UK sojourn that produced this punk-metal behemoth. Iggy looks just plain awesome at this period in time. Couple that with James Williamson who looked like he just crawled out of the gutter after a long heroin bender and Scott Asheton who looks cool beyond belief and badder than bad and you have a set of amazing historic photos. Probably the most visually appealing band I've seen photographed since the '66 era Rolling Stones. This book is a must.

IGGY POP & THE STOOGES, OUTTA DETROIT, WERE PRETTY MUCH THE UNIVERSALLY UNDISPUTED GREATEST INFLUENCE ON THE PUNK ROCK SCENE OF 1976-1977, WHICH PRODUCED CLASSIC BANDS LIKE THE CLASH AND THE SEX PISTOLS. IGGY & THE STOOGES' RECORDING CAREER LASTED FROM 1969-1973, RECORDING 3 STUDIO ALBUMS AND ONE NOTORIOUS LIVE ALBUM. 1972 WAS THE PEAK OF IGGY AND THE STOOGES BRILLIANCE AND OUTRAGEOUSNESS - IGGY'S ANTICS AND APPEARANCE MAKE THE SEX PISTOLS LOOK TAME IN COMPARISON. IF YOU WANT TO ACTUALLY SEE ROCK N ROLL, BESIDES HEARING IT - THIS IS THE BOOK THAT SHOWS WHAT ROCK N ROLL, AT IT'S MOST EXCITING, LOOKS LIKE. BLOOD AND MAKEUP AND BIZARRE/COMICAL/SICK POSES AND VISUAL RAW POWER! A MUST FOR EVERY IGGY/STOOGES/PUNK ROCK FAN, AND VERY LIKELY A FEAST FOR THE EYES FOR FANS OF ALL TYPES OF MUSIC!

This is a really cool coffee table book about Iggy and the Stooges in their hayday. A little light on text, but loaded with great photos. A great price too considering the amount of rare photos inside.

In March 1972, Iggy and James, both completely off heroin, went on England to recruit a new band and start recording the album for CBS. In June joined Ron and Scott Asheton, and together worked on the new recordings until September same year. During their stay in London, The Stooges played only one concert in the King's Cross Cinema. Iggy was dressed only in silver lame trousers and had silver hair, black boots and black lipstick, his show and his mistreatment of audience had schocked all present. It was to be their only show outside America. This book is photographic report from this show, a few photo sessions of the whole band, and also contains common photos with David Bowie and Lou Reed, captured on camera by legendary rock photgrapher, Mick Rock. The book also contains his introduction and interview between virtuoso with camera Mick Rock and rock monster Iggy Pop, conducted in 1972. If you like album cover of "Raw Power", this book is made for you. Since there is no audio or video recording from any of The Stooges concert in 1972, this book offers unique experience for the band admirers. Raw Power! Look for the answer from the title in the book.
