Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Iggy Pop (vocals); David Bowie (keyboards).
  • Recorded at Chateau D'Herouville and Hansa Studios, Berlin, Germany.
  • Iggy's solo debut following the end of the Stooges, THE IDIOT is often overlooked in favour of his second epistle, LUST FOR LIFE. Great album though the latter may be, THE IDIOT served to remind rock's better-informed fans that one of its most original talents was still alive and kicking. Produced by Bowie, IDIOT contains two compositions, "Funtime" and "China Girl" that he later recorded himself. Another highlight is the electronics-driven "Nightclubbing" (a certifiable post-punk classic) and the meandering "Dum Dum Boys" (a precursor to "The Passenger"). An album that proved Iggy did not need to be flanked by guitars to retain his edge and menace.

Well, ain't Iggy the cool rockin' groover? In a 35 degree twisted sense, that is. This album is certainly not quite what you would expect from Mr Pop, to start with. The first part of this album is certainly better - Nightclubbing, Funtime and the China Girl version.

Mass Production drags, but Sister Midnight fits the dark groove of the rest of the release.

Pretty cool stuff.
