DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

THE STOOGES (ABO #153)



THE STOOGES
IN MEMORIAM

The Stooges are an American rock band that were first active from 1967 to 1974, then reformed in 2003. The Stooges sold few records in their original incarnation and often performed for indifferent or hostile audiences. Nevertheless, The Stooges are widely regarded as instrumental in the rise of punk rock, as well as influential to alternative rock. Singer Iggy Pop and his often-outrageous onstage performances were frequently the main focus of attention. They reformed in 2003, with bassist Mike Watt replacing the deceased Dave Alexander. The Stooges have been nominated for possible 2009 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On January 6 2009, guitarist Ron Asheton was found dead from a heart attack in his Ann Arbor home.
This compilation is a tribute to Ron. R.I.P.

This was quite good, as it showed Ron's prevailing influence over the "sound" of the band. The FUN HOUSE stuff is particularly effective. The Stooges were so much more than just Iggy. RIP Ron, perhaps one day your shadow over Rock will be more recognized.
Thank you for this.
