It’s impossible to think of the punk rock revolution of the sixties and seventies without calling to mind the Stooges and their iconic, fearless leader, Iggy Pop. Though the Stooges broke up for good this past June, Iggy Pop has shown he’s not going anywhere. On September 16, Pitchfork highlighted the singer songwriter with an article on the soon-to-be-released live version of his 2016 album Post Pop Depression. Pitchfork also mentioned a new documentary on the Stooges directed by Jim Jarmusch, Gimme Danger, which will be screened at the New York Film Festival next month. The lengthy legacy of Iggy Pop was further chronicled in an article in the New Yorker published on September 15, which described the hyper-physical performances of the Stooges as “where punk rock began.” This all comes in advance of a book publishing this November from Third Man Books: Total Chaos: The Story of the Stooges, As Told by Iggy Pop is replete with full color photographs and is the first book telling Iggy Pop's story of The Stooges from his own words.
Millions mourned the passing of glam rock legend David Bowie this past January, but his musical legacy lives on. The last recordings Bowie ever made are on the soundtrack for the new musical Lazarus, a show based on Bowie’s 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth, and the cast album will be released on October 21. Rolling Stone spotlighted Lazarus in an article published on July 25, while both the New York Daily News and Pitchfork covered the story of Bowie’s last recordings on September 13 and September 12. To coincide with the album release, Feral House has created the ultimate in adult coloring books for Bowie fans: David Bowie: Color the Starman will be published on October 11. With contributions from avant-garde artists like Mica O'Herlihy, Mike Diana, Steve Krakow, and Tony Millionaire, the coloring book captures the essence of personality and flair that the Starman brought to the world of rock’n’roll.
