Wednesday Night Rock - "Loose" by The Stooges
Iggy Pop is probably one of the coolest rockers around and The Stooges deserve all the praise they get, even if it is late. This is my favorite song off The Stooges second album Fun House. There is no way you can listen to "Loose" and not feel that power kicking right to the groin. I hear songs like this and want to smoke cigarettes, drink whisky and grab that dirty girl who likes to throw that up-from-under look at you by the keg. Released in 1970 Fun House was written and performed by Iggy Pop, Dave Alexander, Ron Asheton and Scott Asheton. Steven Mackay joined the band playing saxophones on two of the songs. The Fun House album gives you The Stooges at their best, when Rock was dangerous and dirty.
