James Williamson, guitarist for The Stooges 1973 era ‘Raw Power’ album and more recently 2013’s ‘Ready To Die’ has gathered famous friends who were fans of the band to record rare songs of The Stooges for the album ‘Re-Licked’.
‘Re-Licked’ will feature collaborations with Jello Biafra, Mark Lanegan, Alison Mosshart, The Orwell’s Mario Cuomo, Ariel Pink and Carolyn Wonderland as well as an incredibly powerful second single ‘I Gotta Right’ featuring Lisa Kekaula of The Bellrays.
‘I Gotta Right’ was written by Iggy Pop around 1970 but remained unused until now. Another song ‘Heavy Liquid’ was written in 1973 by Pop and Williamson but not used on ‘Raw Power’.
The recording band features Steve Mackay, Mike Watt & drummer Toby Dammit, all from the live touring version of The Stooges.
The album will be released around October. The single ‘I Gotta Right’ will be released on July 29.
