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.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (12/01, p.155) - "...The first truly successful Pop-Bowie collaboration...tracks like 'Nightclubbing' and 'Dum Dum Boys' saw Iggy attempting to mix James Brown and Kraftwerk - with a large degree of success."

NME (Magazine) (9/18/93, p.19) - Ranked #28 among The Greatest Albums Of The '70s.
