CD Reviews

Iggy Pop - 'Heroin Hates You' (Other People's Music)
Mike Reed | USA | 09/26/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I had a tough time finding a copy of this CD.'Heroin...' was recorded at a Los Angeles gig in November,1979.From the sound quality,I believe this may have been a soundboard recording.This is the title's first authorized release as it's been put out before as a 2-lp bootleg.So,when you get 'Heroin...',you won't get side four of the boot.Rest assure,this is still a great archive show by the Igster.The line-up for this gig included original Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock and The Damned guitarist Brian James.Who could ask for more?As for the tunes,most of them are good to hear played live,I liked "Real Cool Time","Dog Food","New Values","Five Foot One" and "No Fun" the best.Comes with a 16-page informative booklet.One of those CD's that's nice to play at 2am."

"I saw this show.....Checking my tape recording off KROQ the next morning. Couldn't believe it was the show I had just seen. The sound at the show had been unbelieveable. This mix was awful in comparison. I've gotten over it as the years have gone by, and this is no doubt the best representation of the show thats available. A GREAT IGGY performance. What you can't see as you are listening to this would boost the approval to a 10. The stage slowly sinking lower and lower as the band disappears before your eyes. The stage and band on the verge of total collapse thru out. Iggy engaging/confronting the audience like it was the Grande Ballroom in 1969. Punks hanging from the ceiling gurders at the Stardust, upside down , having midget fights. Spit, gobs and insults flying everywhere. I can clearly hear meself and partner in crime Rusty at points thru out this recording. What a treat this cd is from a personnal stand point. What a vital RnR document of Iggy on the edge from a historical stand point. As I slumped to the sidewalk outside the Stardust after this gig and gazed towards the stars, there it was! The local L.A. t.v. station that at that point, Connie Chung was doing the news for. The beauty and the beast indeed!!
A seminal show. BUY IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!"
A Classic, But Better Exists

"This was a classic bootleg documenting Iggy's SOLDIER tour as it played Los Angeles. It's from a KROQ broadcast, and though some will quibble with the dodgy mix it remains one of the best quality live recordings from this "super-group" period in Iggy's long career, thus making it a must have item for collectors of live Iggy. Less well-known is a corresponding broadcast from KSAN in San Francisco the week previous, a show I attended. As far as I know (which is not much) this show hasn't been legitimately (or even ill-legitimately) released, yet it is the superior performance. The band is tighter and rocks harder. I remember being shocked with how sloppy the playing was on Heroin when I first heard it back in its vinyl incarnation. Iggy and band played several nights at Wolfgang's, a smaller SF club run by Bill Graham. The venue hosted many great punk/new wave acts from that period. The live Television CD issued by Rhino Handmade several years ago was sourced from a radio broadcast originating from there, so here's hoping that a companion release to Heroin Hates You, one that captures Iggy in better form, will materialize at some point."
