To promote his new record, Iggy Pop has issued a video suggesting that a new record from him is required:
Iggy Pop alluded to certain bands in a promotional video for his new album, Preliminaires, in which he said he made the disc because he "got sick of listening to idiot thugs with guitars banging out crappy music." He's not explained who exactly he was referring to with that comment.
"Anyone from Smashing Pumpkins to — what's the one with Fred Durst?" he told the U.K.'s The Sun tabloid.
"Yeah, and there are a million billion of them. And people think they're gods, man."
Well, yes. You might suggest that Corgan and Durst have about as much to offer pop as insurance salesman, eh, Iggy?
