'Iggy And The Stooges - Raw Power Live'
(Iggy & The Stooges / DVD / NR / 2011 / MVD Visual)
Overview: Through an online contest, six fans are selected to film Iggy & the Stooges' legendary reunion September 3, 2010 performing ""Raw Power"" to a stunned crowd at the All Tomorrow's Parties Festival. Following the performance, the fans meet and interview the band.
DVD Verdict: The first thing you say to yourself watchng this live concert footage is, My goodness, how old is this guy?! 'Cause he looks @ hundred years-old and has no meat/fat on his body at all! Mind you, it's all due to the fact that the guy still puts it all out there — er, quite literally, at times — on stage for his fans!
That aside, 'Iggy And The Stooges - Raw Power Live: In The Hands Of The Fans' is REALLY for, and about the fans. Indeed, it is the fan's journey and joy as they witness a classic performance and meet their heroes face to face after the show. Part concert film, part reality TV, this "film" brings the fans closer to the band.
Indeed, come the midway juncture of the Stooges performing their classic 1973 Raw Power album at 2010's All Tomorrow's Parties festival, the shirtless, rib-showing Iggy's pants are close to hitting the floor! But, being half-naked doesnt faze him, because to be honest looking at his face I don't even think he knows!
And lest we forgot those all-important Stooges as their incredibly tight, well-orchestrated between each other playing in a joy to see too. Guitarist James Williamson, in particular, plays his balls off with the rhythm section of drummer Scott "Rock Action" Asheton and latter day convert Mike Watt on bass doing much the same. Watch this today and see how music SHOULD be sung/played/performed! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
