Recommendations based on
By Iggy Pop and the Stooges
This recommendation by Frankie Mark Murph, employee of Amoeba Music Hollywood in Los Angeles, California
Raw Power is the ultimate, gnarly, transgressive rock and roll experience of distorted slam and grind. Iggy Pop, with the help of David Bowie and James Williamson, designed something raunchy and engaging that birthed an entire style of proto-punk madness and would go on to influence more bands than you can count. However, there are some artists that took this influence to new highs and places never reached again.

Over The Edge
One of the truly original guitar blasters, Wipers touch upon The Stooges but never mimic. This great song cycle answers both the explosive loudness and the dark brooding atmosphere of the gimmie-danger, search-and-destroy politics of nasty projection.
Bobby Gillespie and his Scottish band of experimental rockers have always sifted through the nastier parts of rock and roll like The Rolling Stones and The Stooges, but never more aptly and adeptly than on Evil Heat, which almost acts as a tribute to the over-distorted, speaker-blasting distortions of Iggy’s most feral moments with a 21st-century twist that takes it to places of unorthodox raunch that should please any raw power ranger.
Kings Of Oblivion
Early 1970s progenitors of the same throb and thrust as Iggy and the gang, this wicked proto-punk classic — featuring the crazed damage of acid head and speed freak Larry Wallis — contains all the most egregious rock and roll riffs this side of the sonic stratosphere with lyrics to match.
The Eyeball Of Hell
Exploiting the Stooges’ wild, thrill-ride insanity, these Ohio freaks play hard distortion and snotty vocals in a way that redefines that Stooges influence in ways mere mortals avoid. The Eyeball Of Hell is absolutely essential proto-punk genius.
