9781840680508: Raw Power: Iggy & the Stooges 1972

Today the walking miracle that is Iggy Pop continues to record, perform and shock. Yet in terms of music and celluloid history, 1972 was the year. During this time, Iggy & the Stooges-at the height of their musical powers and legendary excesses - recorded the now-seminal album Raw Power and performed their only UK gig at London's The Scala.

?

It was a crazed period captured on camera by one man: Mick Rock.

?

Creation Books are now proud to present this unparalleled document of the Stooges. A deluxe edition containing around 200 b&w images (including 47 striking colour shots), many of which have never been published before. Raw Power also features an exclusive interview conducted between Mick Rock and Iggy Pop in 1972, and a brand new introduction by Mick himself.

?

"Iggy Pop is, you might say, extreme. He makes the Mick Jaggers and Alice Coopers of this world look kind of timid. Words such as 'spontaneous' and 'unpredictable', frequently applied to him, are a little short on power. Iggy is a monster."-Mick Rock

?

Currently living in New York, Mick Rock has provided some of the most iconic images in music history including the 'Ziggy Stardust' Bowie period, Lou Reed, and Queen. He is a 3-time Grammy nominee for album cover photography and an award-winning art director.

?Reviews

"Raw Power is that rarity: the rock book that needs no words. History as it happened."--Uncut

?

"These photographs stand out...because of the seeming ease with which they capture the live-fast-die-young spirit of the band and its music. ..A uniquely intimate yet distanced insight into one of history's most important group of musical misfits."-Library Journal

?

"A photographic Pandora's box of Iggy and his band's psyche....Rock's photos are simultaneously sharp, stellar and sensitive. They speak beyond your eyes, almost allowing you to hear the music in your mind....Iggy comes across as a pure punk poet."-Punk Planet

?

"Finally available as a one-volume document of some of the greatest days of rock'n'roll...This book should be issued along with record contracts to upstarts who dare to share the same stage as these hero freaks."-NME

About the Author:

Currently living in New York, Mick Rock has provided some of the most iconic images in music history including the 'Ziggy Stardust' Bowie period, Lou Reed, Queen and Blondie. He is a 3-time Grammy nominee for album cover photography and an award-winning art director. Mick Rock is available for interview.

From Library Journal:

Rock (Ziggy Stardust: Bowie, 1972-1973, 1984. o.p.) has photographed many a rock'n'roll legend: David Bowie, Mott the Hoople, Lou Reed andDthe subject of his latest bookDIggy and the Stooges. Raw Power is a showcase of color and black-and-white prints taken over two sessions in 1972: at the Stooges' first and only U.K. concert and as the band recorded the album from which the book draws its title. Grainy and unpolished, these photographs stand out not so much for their precision and clarity but because of the seeming ease with which they capture the live-fast-die-young spirit of the band and its music. Also included are Rock's notes on the band and its iconic leader, Iggy Pop, as well as interviews he conducted with the singer. These, combined with the photographs, offer a uniquely intimate yet distanced insight into one of history's most important group of musical misfits. Recommended for all music and photography collections.DVincent Au, "Library Journal"
