38 Iggy Pop: Post-Pop Depression

In our culture, the highest and most revered and idolised people are the ones who were rock stars in the 60s and 70s


If you want to avoid the profoundly dull and unoriginal complaints that are sure to follow any time you kick a stranger in the arse on a crowded train platform, simply tell him* that you used to play bass guitar for an early incarnation of the Moody Blues and watch him* immediately start praising how effortlessly cool you are, and bore on at length at how dull today’s music is in comparison while he* picks your foot up and forcibly inserts it into his* rectum to apologise

*It generally only works on men, seemingly because as a gender they seem to be far more pathetically infatuated with a fictitious rock past they may not have even lived through


Do you know what works for women instead? Fucking ponies


Iggy Pop- despite being hailed by boring middle aged white men the world over as a bona fide musical genius whom these faggy artists that the kids are into these days could never hope to come close to emulating because he once did a very good album that David Bowie wrote- has never been among the worst aged rockers


Possessing both a self-awareness and a desire for occasional reinvention, he’s always avoided staying to long on the laurels, of differing justification, that people insist be thrust under his feet



Besides, the quality of his 6’855th album <sounds about right- Ed> is ensured with the help of Josh Homme, who’s a 90s rock star and therefore amazing!


‘Post Pop Depression’ sounds a whole lot more like a Queens of the Stoneage album than an Iggy album, but that’s absolutely no bad thing, and the fact it’s one of the year’s best guitar records bodes extremely well for the Queens’ next album

Best Lyric: ‘God was in the room when the man said to the woman, “I love you so much/Wrap your legs around me/Pull me in, pull me in, pull me in”/Sometimes when he’d have her nipple in his mouth, she’d whisper, “Oh, my God”/That, too, is a form of worship’ +1
