At 2010’s All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival, the reformed Iggy and the Stooges performed their iconic Raw Power. The audio document of the event, Raw Power Live: In the Hands of the Fans was digitally released today.
For the cost of an e-mail address, fans receive a free download of “Search and Destroy” in addition to a number of high-res photos. “Iggy Pop, now 63, knew that his body language translated into still photographs resembling Mannerist paintings,” said Ben Ratliff of the NY Times of the performance, “The Stooges attacked the album’s eight songs, in a different order, just about perfectly.”
The performance comes from the In the Hands of the Fans music series, a contest which awards online video submissions with a chance to film a band’s performance in HD.
