Raw Power is awesome. Fun House is just so much better, though.
It's a close call, I'd admit, but Fun House wins it for me.
But seriously, Fun House is an incredibly forward-thinking album. I mean 'Dirt' is pretty much the prototype for Warsaw/Joy Division.
i'm all for forward thinking and experimenting but Raw Power is the greatest Rock & Roll record ever made and embodies everything that is true, beautiful and simple in it.
its rawer and more powerful, they are both awsome though to be fair. But if I had to choose one to listen to right now it would be Raw Power.
It's a pity they didn't title the album to reflect that fact :(
I like Fun House better. I would love to form a band that did nowt but cover songs from the first two Stooges albums. It would be fun.
Both of those records are better than Dinosaur Jr by miles
it'd also sound pretty awful though
you EVER heard a decent stooges cover? i only like the Titmachine version of Wanna Be Your Dog, and that's because it's played by Dutch girls with all the talent of the Shaggs
with Mike Watt in it called 'Hellride' that does a slightly jazzed up Stooges cover set. I've heard a few good Stooges covers. I don't think you can mess up those songs really unless you play them in an awfully limp fashion or something.
i don't really consider a cover version a success unless it's as good as the original version (otherwise what's the point?) so i suppose it's pretty impossible to do that shit with the stooges
they do more LA Bluesy freaky rave ups in the middle of songs. I haven't listened to em for ages though. The great thing about those songs is how simple they are, leaves plenty of room for interpretation if you want. Even if you don't end up entertaining anyone they are really good fun to play.
can you howl like iggy?
maybe we should start a garage band together playing loose interpretations of stooges classics on casio keyboards
I think we should get a bongo player who just speaks the lyrics. That way all the annoyance bases are covered.
can't compare them
Everything doesn't have to be a competition, we should all mellow out. Oh god Mellow Out owns all albums ever and is the undisputed king of the world. There's a cool (Iggy and the) Stooges dodgy bootleg called 'My Girl Hates My Heroin' that you can find on the internet
but you know what a fun house level record is don't you?
where can that be found on the internet then huh?
Also : Old nasty Bowie Mix of Raw Power > New(ish) polished iggy mix of Raw Power.
they're by different groups really.
