Iggy-Pop-Post-Modern-Depression

Rock’s prominent figures join together for a project. Iggy Pop, coined as grandfather of Punk, sits in a black suit and and a white open shirt, resembling a lizard who is uncomfortable to be wearing any clothes at all. Josh Homme, (QOTSA) wears a strict black suit with a red handkerchief and red socks. Classic! They announce to the the man on the tele, The Late show with Stephen Colbert they just released a new album together titled “Post Pop Depression” and they are going to be debuting a song Gardenia later on.

First impression of their live performance together. As anything Josh Homme produces it starts off with a super catchy riff, led by a bass guitar and an instrumentation of a full band which compared to Iggy Pop’s usual basic punk set up seemed to have a lot of sound, but when Iggy starts singing it all starts to make sense. That deep voice with a hint of of late David Bowie and Nick Cave it was the voice that David Bowie produced out of Iggy on the Lust for a Life record back in 77′.

The chorus goes:

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight?

Who is Gardenia is hard to tell but it doesn’t matter, since Josh Homme and Iggy Pop intertwine this word play with music perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the whole album.

I recently watched a movie by an artist that keeps inspiring me over and over. It seems that since I discovered his music it has done light and dark things to me, but most importantly it elevated my sense of individualism. It made me embrace the energy that he birthed into this world or this energy that was already here since the beginning of time and he made it his mission to explore and make it his own, so that he can unveil it to us, a faithful audience.

I was going through a box of books and I pulled out one with a name of the author in large black letters: Nick Kent. I looked at the guy on the cover of the book. He was dressed in a black, long, slim coat, with a thin scarf, eyeliner, and a cigarette. He wore a look of tiresome fragility and artistic rebellion. I thought, “Hmmm, he looks like some rock star from the 70’s, a cross between Keith Richards and Alice Cooper, but I am not sure I have heard of him.” His demeanor appealed to me—I had a soft spot for all persons who dressed in black.
