New Stooges? Oh Yeah!

Well, I'm trying not to get overly excited, but this has all of the makings of CD of the year in my book.

Iggy Pop and the reunited Stooges are back in the studio to make their first recording since 1973. Pitchfork tells me that Steve Albini is producing and Jack White is involved as well. In place of deceased bassist Dave Alexander is everyone's favorite, Mike Watt. There's no mention of a release date, but there is a tour with several dates already set.

I can't wait to hear this. In celebration and steady anticipation, I think I'll give "Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell" from Raw Power a listen.
