GIMME DANGER: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE
“It’s our love letter to possibly the greatest band in rock ‘n’ roll history,” notes director Jim Jarmusch of his critically acclaimed documentary about The Stooges, Gimme Danger. Rhino offers the perfect complement to the film with GIMME DANGER: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE, a new 14-track collection curated by Jarmusch and Stooges frontman Iggy Pop. With a focus on the group’s first three albums, the soundtrack mixes indelible studio recordings (“I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “1969”) with rare outtakes (“I Got A Right,” “I’m Sick Of You”) and also includes songs from fellow Detroit natives MC5 and pre-Stooges groups the Iguanas and Prime Movers Blues Band. The Stooges’ revolutionary sonic attack inspired legions of followers, and it comes through loud and clear on GIMME DANGER.
