Iggy Pop Plays Massive 22 Song Set At SXSW

Iggy Pop served up a 22 song setlist at SXSW this week and while launching his new album ‘Post Pop Depression’ the audience was treated to song mainly his two classics ‘The Idiot’ and ‘Lust For Life’, both from 1977.

13 songs of Pop’s SXSW came from the 1977 pair of albums, created with David Bowie.

Bowie was the producer and key songwriter on both ‘The Idiot’ and ‘Lust For Life’. Pop and Bowie recorded the albums at Hansa Studios in West Berlin between June 1976 and June 1977. ‘The Idiot’ was released in March 1977, ‘’Lust For Life’ in August that same year. At the same time Bowie was working on his own albums ‘Low’ and ‘Heroes’, also both released in 1977. It was a massive creative period for Bowie.

The Pop albums would create a catalogue of songs that Bowie will later remake as his own including ‘Tonight’, ‘Neighbourhood Threat’ and ‘China Girl’ for his 1983/1984 albums ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Tonight’.

Pop performed at SXSW with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age showcasing their new album ‘Post Pop Depression’.
