October 19, 2011

Iggy And The Stooges - Raw Power: In The Hands Of The Fans Iggy and The Stooges are amongst the loudest live bands on the face of the planet, and now thanks to this brand new DVD, you can experience just that from the safety and comfort of your home. This concert is one hell of a ride as it is unlike any other live concert DVD you currently own, I really mean that, it’s innovative and unreal!

Just before their appearance the All Tomorrows Parties Festival (2010), The Stooges held a contest where their most die hard fans sent in home videos of why they should be selected to shoot this concert via hand held camera. (Those submissions are included on the DVD) The lucky winners would also get to interview the band right after the show, up close and personal. What you get here is like no other concert DVD yet - a live show shot from the point of view of lucky fans who live for The Stooges and all things rock n’ roll.

The variety of footage sliced together make for a great concert DVD, as many times the POV is that of what an average fan in the crowd sees with their own eyes. You get the feeling that you are there witnessing the concert alongside an army of Stooges fanatics. The set list is that of a dream concert where every hit and cult favorite gets played at maximum intensity, it’s the Stooges after all, you wouldn’t expect anything less!

As for the bands performance, it’s as stellar as it gets! You don’t for a minute even think that any of the Stooges are senior citizens getting up on stage with only retirement money on their mind. What you get is what fans have come to expect from Iggy and co. pure insanity! Iggy moves like that of his former self some 35 years ago, its Iggy mania! He stage dives and gets in his fans personal space singing right in their faces, all recorded from a a few short inches away. He also invites fans on stage to dance along with him, what a stand up guy! The Stooges still out perform bands half their age with ease, and this concert DVD is further proof, it’s an updated look at how The Stooges rock in their current incarnate. Pick up this concert DVD and turn it up to 11, if you keep the house shaking and your parents complaining, then you’re doing it right!
