Remastered tracks from pre & post classic album raw power recordings • No Live material all studio / rehearsal tracks • London Material taken from original Multi track masters • Photos from the actual studio in London in 1972 by legendary photographer Mick Rock • Liner notes by Iggy Pop Bible author and ex Mojo editor Paul Trynka.
In the year the Stooges Movie “Gimme Danger" by Jim Jarmusch is released across Europe. The legend that is The Stooges is gaining weight. With the sad departure of both Asheton brothers Ron & Scott who were as much a part of the stooges as Iggy Pop was. Now is the time to ensure we document what exists. With ‘Heavy Liquid -The Album’ we try n show the listener what this band were capable of and what utterly focused and dedicated musicians the band were despite the stories of individuals so far off the rails they made the likes of rolling stones and led zeppelin appear like choirboys. No, there was a sense of purpose…. an attack on the audience at large by very determined young men. Heavy Liquid,..assembled from everything from cassette recordings to Multi track master tape, it is a peep at what could have been !
