373 – Iggy Pop – Lust For Life (1977)
Written by David Bowie/Iggy Pop
Produced by David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Colin Thurston
Label – RCA
The exhilaration that both Iggy and Bowie show on this seismic shock of a single owes much to the relocation to Berlin and the Thin White Duke re-discovering his mojo. The album that this single was lifted from (“The Idiot”) was recorded in just eight days and the urgency is noticeable right from Hunt Sales’ gale force opening drum rhythms. The frenetic pace allied with Pop’s lyrical survival instincts steam roll popular music into the punk era.
