Description

Iggy Pop is one of music's genuine iconoclasts, a walking embodiment of all that is risky and dangerous about rock 'n' roll. He's also an artist of considerable depth, and the creator of a diverse body of work that demonstrates his uncanny ability to defy expectations and explore uncharted creative territory.

The Idiot, Lust for Life and TV Eye Live, originally released between 1977 and 1978, marked Iggy's surprise rebirth as a solo artist after the dissolution of his pioneering protopunk band The Stooges. They also marked a timely collaboration between Iggy and longtime admirer David Bowie, then at the peak of his cultural influence. Bowie produced, co-wrote and played on The Idiot and Lust for Life, and plays keyboards on TV Eye Live. The three albums form a trilogy that remains a cornerstone of Iggy's album catalog.

On The Idiot, such standout tunes as "Nightclubbing," "Funtime," "Dum Dum Boys" and the original version of "China Girl" (later an '80s hit for Bowie) introduced listeners to a more cerebral, introspective Iggy, often substituting an understated sense of unease for The Stooges' raw aural assault.
